The past few years have been tough for many of us, and families affected by ichthyosis are no exception. We have not been able to meet up for our annual residential camps for children affected by ichthyosis and this year we are pleased to say we will be running our children's camps.

We are excited to announce we are holding two ISG Children's Residential Camps this year in the summer of 2022.

We started running these camps in 2014 and they have been a huge success. However, we understand the possible anxieties for parents and children when considering attending one of these camps. This year we have decided to hold an online event in advance of the camps so parents and children can meet the ISG team that organise and attend the camps. This will be an opportunity to ask questions and meet some of the children that have previously attended camps and that may be coming along this year.

For more information and to get your ticket to our online camp discussion, please Register here using the password sent out to members.  Please complete a registration for each child/adult attending. 

Alternatively if you would like to register for one of the camps please do so using the following links and passwords:

The children aged 8-16 years that attend are all affected by ichthyosis in some way, whether they have the condition themselves or they are a sibling/cousin of someone with the condition.

The residential camps are packed full of activities which include things like Zipwire, Quadbiking, Archery, Orienteering, Giant Swing, Abseiling, Climbing, Raft building plus many many more.

The camps are designed to be exciting and fun whilst encouraging social interaction, promoting personal development and increasing confidence and self-esteem.

Thanks to grants we are able to provide these camps free of charge for our members (£10 deposit per child returned on arrival as spending money for the child).

The password to access registration has been sent by email to families with children aged 8 to 16 years.

Please note: To participate in the online discussion session and to attend one of the camps you need to be a member of the Ichthyosis Support Group. There is no charge for this and you can sign up here. This is to protect the privacy of all those involved. Your name will be checked against our database and your participation may be refused if you are not a member.

If you have any questions please call us on 0800 368 9621 or email us.
