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.
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.
We are not accepting volunteer applications for summer 2021 due to Camp Discovery going virtual. However, please check back next winter/spring to apply to volunteer for summer 2022. For more information, please call the AAD office at (847) 240-1737 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
