2023 CAMP DISCOVERY
Camp Discovery – a unique summer camp for kids living with dermatologic disease
During the summer of 2023, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) will sponsor five (5) one-week sessions of Camp Discovery -- a camp designed specifically to meet the medical needs of kids living with chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, alopecia, epidermolysis bullosa, ichthyosis, or any other dermatologic condition that creates an impact on a child’s ability to actively participate in activities/events with their peers.
All campers must be initially referred by their dermatologist and the form is available on the Camp Discovery home page,

Provided at no cost to families (including airfare), kids from across the United States, and around the world, attend Camp Discovery to experience an adventure filled with fun, friendship, and personal growth. This unique program provides a safe environment that enables and encourages kids to explore and participate in activities such as fishing, swimming, archery, horseback riding, nature trails, and more. Mastering a new skill, or simply trying something new, Camp Discovery can help your child build strength, resilience, and confidence.
Surrounded by peers who also are living with dermatologic disease, amazing counselors, and a dedicated and caring medical staff - Camp Discovery enables kids to be kids, and simply have fun, in a place where they are understood, they look and feel like everyone else, and their diagnosis is not a barrier.
Referrals can be made by:
· the child's dermatologist,
· those providing medical or psychosocial support to the patient and family, or
· the child's parent or guardian.
The process is easy - just print and complete this REFERRAL FORM,
Then have the child’s dermatologist:
· verify diagnosis,
· provide guidance regarding current health status, and
· indicate all medical needs to best ensure safe and successful participation.
Please let me know if you have any questions… looking forward to making a difference in the lives of so many special children.
With hope – Sandi Ring, @Sandra Ring
