Camp Wheez
FREE Camp for Children with Asthma!

Camp Wheez


Camp Wheez 2022 was a success! Campers enjoyed games, crafts, cooking and more, all while learning to live their healthiest lives with asthma. We look forward to next year’s Camp Wheez. Check back here in April 2023 for details.

If you have any questions, email us at or call (805) 681-7672.
