Explore Camp Discovery
Camp Discovery offers kids living with skin disease a one-of-a-kind experience. Every summer, the AAD sponsors six weeks of camp in five locations where everyone can experience activities such as fishing, horseback riding, and just plain fun!
To attend Camp Discovery, a dermatologist must first refer the child to the AAD for admission. Simply download the camper referral form and submit it back to the AAD by email/fax.
The success of AAD's Camp Discovery depends on dedicated dermatologists, nurses, and counselors who volunteer their time to ensure that the medical needs of each camper are met.
