Children's Skin Disease Foundation (CSDF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation which focuses on the unique problems of young people who suffer from skin disease and the families who care for them. Diseases of the skin affect thousands of American children each year. These diseases cause discomfort, pain, disfigurement, disability, dependency or death. These diseases affect not only the children but also their entire family. Even worse, the physical and emotional hurt caused by childhood skin diseases can last a lifetime.
CSDF sponsors the only medically staffed camps in the western United States, the Carolinas and Virginia for children with severe chronic and/or fatal skin diseases. In 2001, CSDF established Camp Wonder, at Camp Arroyo in Livermore, California (33 miles south east of Oakland Airport) through a grant from the Taylor Family Foundation.
Our mission has always been to improve the lives of children with skin disease and their families. One way we accomplish this goal is to grant wishes to Camp Wonder families.
