Camp Wheez Free Day Camp

Learning about asthma can be fun!

Camp Wheez is a day camp for elementary school children, grades 1-6 with chronic asthma, providing them with a camp experience designed for their special needs. It is free of charge and open to the community. Campers learn about their asthma while they participate in recreation and arts and crafts. Parents attend a brief workshop which provides an update on asthma care and a time to have their questions answered by an asthma specialist, followed by a play presented by the children.

Dr. Myron Liebhaber founded Camp Wheez in 1977 in collaboration with the American Lung Association.
