Camp Liberté is an independent, charitable organization governed by Canadian dermatologists who are committed to ending the stigma of skin disease. Our mission is to provide Canadian children with chronic skin conditions an opportunity to grow in confidence and self-esteem through a multi-cultural, outdoor camping experience in a fun, safe, bilingual, environment. With camps in the east and west, over 40 children with moderate to severe skin conditions, live the 1-week camp experience each year. Expansion plans include the addition of sites and local champions to ensure this life changing experience is available to more children.
