We hope this finds you healthy and safe at home with your families. We want to share with you the Camp Superkids Medical Board decision not to hold asthma camp during the 2020 season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. While devastating, it is the right decision to ensure the safety of all. The Medical Board simply could not identify a strategy to keep 150 campers with persistent asthma, 100 volunteer medical staff and 100 YMCA camp staff safe during this pandemic. We are making plans for an exciting camp experience next year for your children with asthma. We hope you will engage with us. Stay well and live well.

About Asthma Camp

Camp Superkids is more than a summer camp—it is a life-changing experience that fosters independence, inspires confidence, and builds self-esteem for kids with asthma and educates them and their families on how to better manage their disease.

Who Can Attend?

Any child, ages 7-15, who has moderate or severe asthma.

Camp Staff

Highly skilled doctors, nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, nurse practitioners, counselors and program leaders provide medical supervision and instruction at Camp Superkids 24 hours-a-day.


Campers stay in cabins and older campers spend one night tenting. All food is provided. If your child has food allergies, please feel free to bring food clearly labeled in a bag to supplement their meals with safe alternatives. Camp Superkids is peanut and shellfish-free


Transportation is not provided by the American Lung Association or by the YMCA.

Recreational Activities

Campers enjoy swimming, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing, ropes courses, arts & crafts, all-camp games, fishing and more...

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!
