Volunteer your time
Become a Camp Discovery volunteer
The success of AAD's Camp Discovery depends on dedicated medical staff and counselors who volunteer their time to ensure that the campers are safe, their medical needs are attended to, and have fun!
Volunteers need to be at least 18 years of age.
Volunteers can select the week that is most convenient for them.
Airfare, for those that need to fly, is paid for by the American Academy of Dermatology.
Each location accepts a number of cabin counselors and medical staff.
All volunteers are expected to volunteer for the entire camp week, unless previously arranged.
The week will be very high energy, with little down-time. Be prepared to work very long hours, and be exhausted by the end of the week.
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.
