AAFA has been a partner in the Consortium on Children's Asthma Camps which helps children with asthma by bringing together people from all walks of life to share ideas on how to best manage this chronic disease.
At these unique camps, asthma specialists join kids and their families in developing effective asthma management techniques geared toward individuals and their specific situations. Children participate in a variety of Consortium-sponsored settings-day camps, week-long outdoor camps, school-based programs-and gain methods for living with asthma that work best for them.
The Consortium on Children's Asthma Camps is committed to teaching asthma management in environments that make learning enjoyable. Lessons initially acquired because they are fun evolve into lifelong asthma management skills that contribute to happier, healthier lives.
