Event: Camp Breathe Easy Open for Kids with Asthma
Camp Breathe Easy is an overnight summer camp for children who have asthma and require daily medications.
The goal is to promote self-confidence and teach self-management of a chronic disease through education, while at the same time offering traditional camp activities and programs. Most of the camp participants are from inner-city neighborhoods. For many, it's their first time going to summer camp.
The next Camp Breathe Easy is August 21 - 24, 2005.
Camp Breathe Easy is sponsored by Kerry's Kids, Children's Hospital Oakland, Oakland Kicks Asthma, the Oakland Berkeley Asthma Coalition, the Taylor Family Foundation, and the American Lung Association of the East Bay.
Camp is open to children in Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano counties who are entering the 4th-9th grade. For more information, including the application form, visit http://www.alaebay.org/programs.html#asthma_cbe.
