Active with Asthma Camp Volunteers

The American Lung Association in Wisconsin is recruiting volunteer counselors and medical staff for our annual Active With Asthma day camp, held at Bay View High School in Milwaukee, WI, June 16-20, 2014. Counselors help make camp a safe and fun experience for 8-12 year olds with asthma, and lead a group of 10-16 campers throughout the week.

At Active With Asthma Camp, campers learn how to manage their asthma, their medications, triggers, and more. Educational sessions are mixed in with fun day camp activities, arts and crafts, and field trips around the city.

Each year, volunteers make Active With Asthma Camp possible! Without the support of these dedicated individuals, this memorable experience for local children with asthma could not exist. This unique opportunity involves completing about 40 volunteer hours and is a fantastic experience for individuals interested in health care and health education fields. Those in educational fields will also gain excellent experience.

To apply, please return the Camp Staff application or the Medical Staff application to the Lung Association at Katie.Halverson@Lung.org. Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our campers, so there is a background check required for all camp volunteers. If you have any questions or to learn more, please contact Katie at (262) 703-4836 or Katie.Halverson@Lung.org
