How CSDF is helping our families during COVID-19!
Over the past 20 years, CSDF and Camp Wonder has created a community and family rooted in support and acceptance for those with skin disease. The children and families we serve are particularly vulnerable during this current health crisis. To continue our mission during these challenging and scary times, we are providing the following services and programs to our families:
Grocery gift cards for those who have been financially impacted by job loss or other loss due to COVID-19,
Access to medications, creams and/or lotions for those having trouble securing these vital products,
Hosting online programming (read below) to uphold the emotional and psychological support and connections that the Camp Wonder community provides children with skin disease. As always, these programs are provided at no cost to the families, through generous donations by our sponsors.
During this temporary time when we are unable to come together physically at Camp Wonder, we are committed to our legacy of supporting children with skin disease by offering “Camp Wonder 2020: Camp Out”, a series of virtual activities to continue our connection and further support each other!

How you can help our families during COVID-19!
Our goal was to welcome 100 children and young adults with skin disease to Camp Wonder 2020: Camp Out! We currently have 116 signed up! ☺ This tremendous excitement reinforces the impact of Camp Wonder! Particularly, how this empowering community provides security and care to children and families impact by skin disease.
Each box will cost $280 and contain 20 items to participate in Camp Out (we are keeping those items a secret to surprise the kids).
