Camp Wheeze Away

Kids holding Camp Wheeze Away sign

2017 Camp Wheeze Away is almost here, June 15-17, 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, he/she 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 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Thursday and Friday. Saturday’s hours are 9:00 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 11:00 a.m.; and, participants will receive their “goody bags”.

Use the link above to print out several forms that must be completed and returned to us by Monday, June 12th, by 5:00 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.

We are delighted that your child will be part of this FREE asthma camp for children ages 6-10. For more information call 270-684-6144 or toll-free at (877) 291-6303.
