VBF Teams Up with AAD's Camp Discovery!

Registration for The American Academy of Dermatology’s Camp Discovery is now open!


It's never too early to think about summer.


The VBF is pleased to have teamed up with Camp Discovery, which is run by The American Academy of Dermatology. Former AAD President, Dr. Mark Dahl founded Camp Discovery in 1993 for children between the ages of 8 and 16 who have chronic skin conditions. Since then the camp has grown and is now offered in Minnesota, Washington, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Texas. The camps, which are run under the expert care of dermatologists and nurses, give children the opportunity to spend time with other children who have skin conditions. The camps offer many activities including games, horseback riding, swimming and fishing.


There is no fee to attend the camps. The AAD provides full scholarships, including transportation. All campers must be referred by their dermatologist. For more information please visit their website at to download a Camp Referral form for your child. Deadline April 10, 2015.
