Twenty-three adolescent burn survivors came together in southern Maine over the weekend as part of the 10th Fire & Ice Burn Survivors Winter Camp put on by the Portland Firefighters Children’s Burn Foundation. Portland-area firefighters served as camp counselors, and took the teens to the Camden Snow Bowl, Lakeside Archery and several other spots for group events and personal support activities. As an 18-year-old camper, this is Shakhray’s last year to participate. She said she hopes to be selected as a counselor next year. (Roger S. Duncan / For The Forecaster)
