Champ Camp is an educational and fun week-long summer camp for children with asthma (ages 7-14). Children gain confidence in themselves and their ability to take control of their asthma while enjoying activities like canoeing, hiking, and rock climbing! Champ Camp changes the lives of children who suffer from asthma and offers them the tools to overcome their lifelong fear of not being able to breathe.

Volunteers, including medical staff, are on site 24 hours a day for the entire camp to ensure safety and a great experience. Since 1979, Champ Camp has impacted thousands of lives, saved many lives of children with severe asthma and taught them how to become leaders within their communities and to efficiently and effectively manage their asthma.

One of the goals of Champ Camp is to provide inclusive programs in a safe and supportive environment for everyone regardless of race, religion, age, class, gender identity and/or sexual orientation.

Champ Camp costs the American Lung Association in Colorado $800 per child. Due to donors and funders, no family will ever pay more than $300, which is $150 less than in previous years. That being said, no child is denied Champ Camp due to financial constraints. Each family applying to Camp will be able to apply for financial aid. The majority of our campers last year received a partial or full financial aid scholarships.

Champ Camp is a fun, educational, affordable, and life-changing experience for kids and their families. Every penny donated helps to send a child to Camp!
