Description:  Camp SuperKids® is a medically supervised camp. Children have fun, receive support from each other, and learn how to manage their asthma at the same time. Camp SuperKids® will include traditional camp activities such as water activities, hiking, fishing, arts and crafts, and games. While camp is fun, there’s an educational side too. Children participate in activities designed to help them better understand asthma, how an asthma episode can be triggered, how to handle an asthma episode and how their medication works. Campers gain support from one another on how to manage their asthma.
