The Variety Alopecia Areata Adventure Camp is a weekend of fun for kids with all forms of Alopecia Areata, supported by Variety – the Children’s Charity of NSW/ACT.
Due to the many restrictions and changes of COVID-19, the camp will not be running in 2020. AAAF aim to run the camp in 2021 and have a range of support for young people and families that continue to operate.
The Variety Alopecia Areata Adventure Camp is an opportunity for kids aged 18 and under with any form of Alopecia Areata to come together for an exciting weekend. The camp is free for kids with AA, including flights, meals, accommodation and activities.
The Variety Alopecia Areata Adventure Camp is a fantastic opportunity for kids living with Alopecia to make friends, learn about the condition and – most importantly – have a very fun time.
The Variety Alopecia Areata Adventure Camp is proudly supported by Variety – the Children’s Charity NSW/ACT
