LITTLE ROCK, AR -- For four days every summer...firefighters and counselors help young burn victims forget about their injuries and just have fun.

It's Camp Sunshine time which is held at Camp Aldersgate in Little Rock.

The whole idea is to help children with burn injuries understand they're not alone and to build up their self confidence.

Everyone just gets to be themselves, sharing similar experiences, and receiving one on one attention with firefighters and counselors.

A nurse -- who worked at Arkansas Children's Hospital burn unit -- founded Camp Sunshine in 1991.

Thanks to community fundraisers, the camp is free.
