US Department of Human Services “Atopic Dermatitis Fast Facts”
For young people with chronic skin conditions, Camp Discovery offers a summer camping experience unlike any they’ve had before. Every year, the American Academy of Dermatology sponsors a week of fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, arts and crafts, and just plain fun.
Under the expert care of dermatologists and nurses, Camp Discovery offers campers the opportunity to spend a week among other young people who have similar skin conditions. Many of the counselors have skin conditions as well, and can provide support and advice to campers. 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. http://www.campdiscovery.org/
