Camp Discovery 2012
In 1993, during his presidency, Dr. Mark Dahl founded Camp Discovery with the support of the American Academy of Dermatology (Academy), offering one week of camp to about 50 kids at Camp Knutson in Crosslake, Minnesota. Little did we know how much Camp would grow over the next 19 years. Camp Horizon began in 1995; Teen Camp followed in 1998 and last year we introduced Camp Reflection in Washington State.
This year the Academy is proud to offer six camping sessions for young people with chronic skin conditions who are between the ages of 8 and 16. 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, while participating in everything from swimming and fishing to horseback riding to lots of camp games and just plain fun!
There is no fee to attend this very special camp. Full scholarships, including transportation, are provided by the Academy through generous donations from its members, outside organizations and individuals. All campers must be referred by their dermatologist.
