In 1999, Allison Massari established the Roger Pepper Adventure Camps after surviving a terrible automobile accident. She formed the camp through the Adaptive Sports Center and named the camp after Roger Pepper, a selfless onlooker who pulled her from a fiery wreckage and saved her life.
The mission of the Roger Pepper Adventure Camps is to promote and provide outdoor recreation to teenagers with severe burns. The activities offered in these summer and winter camps teach young burn survivors new life skills, build self-confidence, and empower them to be more comfortable with their physical and emotional scars.
For more information about the camps, please contact Elizabeth Philbin, Logistics Manager, (970) 349-5075.
