Summer Camps for Children with Asthma


Dedicated asthma camps have helped many children learn to better control their disease while enjoying activities like hiking, swimming, and arts and crafts in a supportive and educational environment. For 40 years, the American Lung Association in California hosted SCAMP Camp for youngsters with asthma. Given changing community needs and medical advances that help children manage their disease (allowing many more children with asthma to attend non-asthma specific summer camps), our final SCAMP Camp was held in June 2015. Understanding that some families may still be interested in asthma-focused summer camps, we encourage you to visit or contact the American Lung Association Lung Helpline at 1-800-LUNG-USA (1-800-586-4872) for more information on an asthma camp nearest you.
