Potter Electric Supports Children's Burn Camp

Posted By Laurie Knox, Tuesday, August 2, 2011

For over 10 years, Potter Electric Signal Company, LLC has supported the Burns Recovered Support Group (BRSG), which hosts the annual Missouri Children’s Burn Camp August 8 through August 12, 2011 at Camp Sabra, in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri.

Missouri Children’s Burn Camp provides a special experience for young burn survivors to interact with one another and have a positive effect on their attitude and self-image. The camp hosts between 75 and 85 children each session, where campers enjoy swimming, boating, archery, water skiing, fishing, zip lines, ropes courses, and crafts.

This year, the BRSG we will be hosting two children from Peru to attend the camp, as well as native Missouri and Kansas residents. Judy Nyhoff, Inside Sales Manager for the Sprinkler and Industrial division of Potter Electric has been a member of the BRSG Board of Directors for four years and personally involved with the camp for seven years.

During that time, she has acted as a camp chaperone, counselor, and group leader. She said, "Burn camp is truly an amazing experience, not only for the campers, but for everyone involved. During the years of my participation, both my husband and my son have joined me in attending and volunteering at camp. Helping the campers see their true beauty and potential makes the experiences worthwhile.”

Missouri Children’s Burn Camp was founded in 1997. Due to the support of many wonderful sponsors and volunteers like Potter, there is no charge to any camper for participation in this program. Burns Recovered Support Group sponsors all the children interested in attending camp. Missouri Children’s Burn Camp is for any child, 6-17, who has been hospitalized for burns.
