Camp Wheeze Away
2019 Camp Wheeze Away is almost here, June 13-15, at the Healthpark on Ford Avenue. The mission of the Camp is to provide support and education to children ages 6-10 who are diagnosed with asthma. This free Camp allows participants to experience normal activities in a fun, medically supervised manner, while learning more about asthma. Once we receive your child’s application, they will be enrolled in the camp. We will not be sending out any additional notifications.
Your child will be assigned to a group of children of the same age and supervised by volunteers who will help them with activities. The ratio of volunteers to children is 1:5. The volunteers are medical staff, respiratory staff, and community volunteers.
During the first two days of Camp, we will provide a morning snack and lunch. Camp hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday and Friday. Saturday’s hours are 9 a.m. to noon. Parents and/or legal guardians are also strongly encouraged to attend Camp on Saturday: We will conduct an education session designed for parents while campers enjoy more activities; lunch will be catered at 11 a.m.; and, participants will receive their “goody bags”.
Attached are several forms that must be completed and returned to us by Monday, June 10th, by 4 p.m. Turn in the completed forms to the Membership Front Desk at the Healthpark on Ford Avenue, or mailed to Healthpark ATTN: Melinda Cornell, 1006 Ford Ave., Owensboro, KY 42301. This information will assist us in providing a safe camp environment. You may also drop off forms at Allergy & Asthma Specialists.
We are delighted that your child will be part of this FREE asthma camp for children ages 6-10. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any additional questions: 270-684-6144 or toll free at 877-291-6303.
