Support Camp Discovery
Donate to Camp Discovery
Fun, friendship, and independence are on the top of everyone’s agenda. And, everyone shares in the discovery of what it’s like to be included. Your gift ensures that children with chronic skin conditions will continue to benefit from a week of fun and adventure, while meeting others facing similar challenges and learning they are not alone. Your gift truly makes a difference! Support Camp Discovery by making a donation, which can help send a child to camp next summer.
Help send a kid to camp
When you choose a gift from the Camp Commissary, you'll help make camp possible for another group of kids. Donate today!
Volunteer your time
The success of AAD's Camp Discovery also depends on dedicated dermatologists and nurses who volunteer their time to ensure that the medical needs of each camper are met.
Volunteers can select the week which is most convenient for them.
There is no cost for volunteers to attend. All fees, including transportation are provided by the American Academy of Dermatology.
Each location accepts a number of cabin counselors and medical staff.

Refer a child
Every child must be referred by his/her dermatologist. The camper referral form can be downloaded by the referring dermatologist or by the child's parent/guardian.
Host a fundraising event to benefit Camp Discovery
Fundraising events hosted by you are fun, creative ways to raise awareness and funds for Camp Discovery in your community. Your special event – a house sale, a bar mitzvah, a 5K – can be a great way to give back to Camp Discovery. See how you can host a fundraising event.
