What is Camp Liberté?
Camp Liberté was inspired by a group of dermatologists dedicated to offering children with skin diseases an opportunity to enjoy a summer camp experience. It is a project of the Camp Liberté Society, and is supported by the Canadian Dermatology Association and a donation by Stiefel, a GSK company.
Camp Liberté offers six days of fun for children in Canada between the ages of 7 and 11 who suffer from moderate to severe skin disease. This time gives the campers an opportunity to meet new friends and try new activities in a safe and secure environment—an experience of a lifetime!
Along with the team of Stiefel volunteers, a team of dermatologists and nurses will be on hand to supervise treatment. One camp counselor per three children will coordinate all the exciting activities that the camp site has to offer, and will ensure any special needs are met.
What’s the Cost?
There is no fee for campers. Camp Liberté covers the costs for transportation to the camp, and for food and accommodation and all activities at the camp. The camp is hosted by Camp Papillon, the summer camp site of the Quebec Society for Disabled children.
