Champ Camp 2014

July 20-26, 2014
Celebrating 34 Summers!

When you can’t breathe…Nothing else matters.

Champ Camp offers kids with asthma the tools to overcome their lifelong fear of not being able to breathe.

Champ Camp changes the lives of children who suffer from asthma. The majority of them come from low-income families who, without support, cannot afford to send their kids to asthma camp.

Champ Camp is a place where kids aged 7-14 with asthma will gain new experiences, new friends and memories that will last them a lifetime! During our week-long camp, children will gain confidence in themselves and their ability to take control of their asthma.  Asthma is an inflammatory condition of the lungs that makes it difficult to breathe. Asthma is chronic, meaning that inflammation is always present, even when there are no noticeable symptoms. When provoked by a trigger, the inflammation worsens and these changes produce airway obstruction, chest tightness, coughing and wheezing that can lead to asthma episodes.  At Champ Camp kids are educated how to properly manage their asthma by avoiding triggers, staying active, and sticking to the proper medicine regimen.

For over 33 summers we have impacted thousands of lives. The campers come to us as children eager to grow and learn and become leaders within the community. Champ Camp helps transition campers over the years into mature, responsible youth & adults who efficiently and effectively manange their asthma.
