One of the best parts of being a kid is being able to attend summer camp. The new friends,
the fun activities, the relaxing outdoor environment – it’s all part of an experience designed
to foster children’s educational, cultural, and social development, and create memories that
they’ll cherish for a lifetime. For children with asthma, many traditional camp activities –
such as hiking, canoeing, and campfires – may appear to be an impossibility. Fortunately,
that’s not the case at all.
Asthma camps are specifically designed to accommodate the needs of children with asthma, and offer them the same quality experience as any other summer camp program.
Aside from the traditional physical and social benefits, asthma camps have scientifically-
proven benefits – campers tend to have improved management of their condition, as well
as an increase in their overall quality of life.
In many ways, asthma camps aren’t too different from other programs – campers live
together in lodgings, enjoy traditional camp activities (archery, swimming, etc.), and meet
a variety of new friends. The only difference is that the campers all have one thing in
common: a diagnosis of asthma, ranging from mild to severe.
In addition to designing and supervising activities that are safe and fun for the campers, the
camp counselors often involve participants in educational programs to help them better
understand their condition – discussing topics such as identifying triggers, managing
asthma at school, properly using an inhaler or nebulizer, and how to come up with an
asthma action plan. By combining recreation with education, asthma camps build
awareness, self-esteem, and social unity. Best of all, they’re a lot of fun!
As with any other summer camp, there are many
factors that parents should consider when deciding on
a program. Potential questions to ask when evaluating
There are approximately 120 asthma camps in the United States, serving nearly 10,000 children! Here are some of the major ones.
