How cool would this be if there was a such thing as an Acne Camp (Like fat Camp or something lol) where you could stay there for a few months, do outdoor activities in the sunshine and Fresh Air and meet people with the same condition as you so you don't have to feel embarressed?! Girls wouldn't wear make-up and stuff and you can just let your hair down and have fun! Would have to be somewhere nice like America or something. Would be nice also just to eat healthy foods and get some exercise! Only wish it were true cos I would def go stay there! :dance:

Sounds like a bad idea imo. I'd rather hang out with people that I know for their personality and their hobbies rather than their disabilities ;o

dude, this should seriously happen!!!It would be amazing, imagine dan could be like the camp leader and the moderators would be the group organisers. I would so go. Plus we'd all be outside in the sunshine, instead of trapped like vampires in our rooms, would probably improve our acne aswell :D

Acne camp sounds fun...do we get to race in potato sacks, carry eggs on spoons in our mouths, have water balloon fights filled with benzoly peroxide to burn our eyes out, sit around camp fire and tell each other scary stories of acne experiences? I'm not sure where the camp could be held at, but I can use my basement as a monthly gathering to worship the father of Acne.org, Dan.

THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU!!!

Ok, time for my Marxist opinion.

I think the idea is good, but I don't think it'd be as dandy as you make it out to be. There will still be social stratification. You will have the milds, the moderates, and the severe. People will feel inferior to others, guranteed. And what about age groups? Are there going to be seperate camps for adults? I know I'd feel foolish if I was around a bunch of teenagers... just another reminder of a lost childhood. But maybe that's just me. However, I do think it could work in the sense of building up people's confidence, gaining new perspectives, emotional support, etc.

We would have activities like

1) How to apply bp

2) Pimple Pimple Cyst! (duck duck goose haha)

3) We would all get an extra hour in the morning to go through our routines

4) My version of colour wars: Accutanies VS Topcials VS anti-biotics

Its endless!

i think its a nice idea..but end of the day i also think many ppl would just say this and be too embaressed to actually go...a lot of ppl here dont even like to have othr ppl looking at their face or leaving their house at times...but something like acne camp...or maybe even not call it that but 'clear skin camp'...could teach ppl on how to look after and obtain a healthy lifestyle, get over hang ups, fresh air and all that...sounds a nice idea..

Thats not a bad idea IMO, granted people wont want to be seen, but surely the same feeling apply to those at fat camp, then again, at fat camp you can have proper diet and exercise, acne is just a bitch and doesn't seem to be controlled or beaten in any way other than Tane

That's a really BAD idea (imo). What would you do at such a camp? Sure, you could meet other people with acne and all but a "camp" like that would just seperate people with acne into their own little group, away from the rest of the population.. sort of like saying that people with acne are of a different race or something. People need to learn to function in the real world, regardless of acne or anything else. I can understand other specialty camps like fat camps.. because the kids there go to lose weight. But an acne camp? People with acne can just go to a derm where they live. When they leave the camp they'll have to leave all the people they met and go back to the real world. And in the end, they'll probably feel even more distant from everyone else..

Maybe in the camp bathrooms there could be giant dispensers full of different topicals and pills. We could just take a big drug cocktail of sorts until we suffered the obligatory chemical burn. The cafeteria would ban all sugar and dairy and the camp counselors could double as facialists. The pool would be an indoor one of course since we'd all be so sun sensitive. Even the windows would be darkened to ensure that we wouldn't be over exposed to the sun. Mirrors would be covered so our self esteem wouldn't be affected and the sinks would be pus filled. There would be lots of chairs so that achy Accutane users could sit instead of participate in sports. Tissues would be nearby at all times in case of Accutane induced nose bleeds.

i think its a great idea. i think that it would be better than wallowing and crying in your room. i'd rather create an acne cult and spend time in the sunshine than never see the light of day. and it would take your mind off of it, and at the end of the summer, your skin would probably look a lot better.

all i wanted when i started accutane was to live on a deserted island for five months. just to heal on my own. camp wouldn't be a bad idea at all.
