Camp Wheez - Free Summer Day Camp for Kids with Asthma Celebrates 40 Years

Camp Wheez 40th Anniversary

Camp Wheez is a day camp for elementary school children with asthma providing them with a camp experience designed for their special needs. Campers learn about their asthma while they participate in games & recreation, arts & crafts and old-fashioned camp fun. Parents learn too, in a workshop just for them. Celebrating 40 years of service, Camp Wheez was founded by Myron Liebhaber, MD in 1978 in partnership with the American Lung Association.
