Summer Camp Dates



Over the last few months, our board of directors and medical staff has been diligently monitoring the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, taking into consideration the vulnerability of children with chronic illness that we serve at Camp Wonder.  Today, The Taylor Family Foundation, who grants us use of their site, announced their decision to cancel all summer sessions for 2020. We completely support their decision as it was made out of respect and concern for the health and well-being of all camp attendees.

Over the last 20 years, our priority has, and will forever remain, the safety of our campers and staff, which could be at risk given current scientific evidence on contagiousness of COVID-19 and its risk to those with underlying health issues.  You have always put your loved ones in our care.  We want to honor your trust and continue to earn it.

Camp Wonder has created a community and family rooted in support and acceptance for those with skin disease.  To continue that mission during this temporary change, we will host Camp Wonder virtual activities over the next few months. 

Thank you for your support now and always! You are truly what makes Camp Wonder special and whom we want to protect! We look forward to seeing you at Camp Wonder 2021, where we will celebrate our 20th anniversary of Wonder and the magic you have all helped to build.

Wishing you and your families health and safety.


The American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD) Camp Discovery program is for children ages 8-16 who have a chronic skin condition.

Under the expert care of dermatologists and nurses, Camp Discovery gives campers the opportunity to spend a week with other young people with skin conditions as well, having fun and participating in lots of activities such as swimming, archery, horseback riding, arts and crafts, etc.

There is no fee to attend, all costs, including air transportation (if necessary), are provided by the AAD through generous donations from its members, outside organizations and individuals.  All campers must be initially referred by their dermatologist and the form is available on the Camp Discovery home page,

All Camp Discovery Camps planned for 2020 have been cancelled.
