The Asthma Camp Experience

  • During asthma education sessions, campers learn about their asthma, their triggers, how to avoid an exacerbation and how to better manage their asthma.
  • Campers learn the difference between medications taken to prevent an attack and medications taken to stop an attack.
  • Throughout Camp Superkids, campers learn about their asthma in a welcoming environment while making friends with kids just like them!
  • The American Lung Association provides support for families of children with asthma. our Lung HelpLine provides year-round support to answer questions free of charge. Call 1-800-LUNGUSA.

Not Just a Few Days in the Summer...

All campers will go home with an Asthma Action Plan specifically designed to fit their individual health needs.

Campers will have their own Facebook group to keep in touch with staff, volunteers and their peers to share the asthma camp experience year-round. Like us on Facebook!
