Application Fee Waived for Camp Catch Your Breath

Thursday, June 11, 2015

The 25th Annual Camp Catch Your Breath is just one month away and more local children will have the opportunity to attend now that the $70 registration fee is being waived.

Camp Catch Your Breath provides a fun and educational experience for children ages eight through 13 with asthma who might not otherwise get to go camping.  During their five-day stay, campers will learn by sharing their experiences, make decisions about their conditions and express their feelings about having asthma.  In addition to the educational component, children will participate in games, sports, swimming, and crafts.  

 

The camp is located in Jackson’s Mill, Weston, W.Va., July 19 through the 24, and is sponsored by the American Lung Association and several W.Va. hospitals, including OVMC.  Campers will be supervised by staff from participating hospitals and a physician will be present at all times and emergency medical support will be readily available.

 

Space is limited and the application deadline is Friday, July 3.  If you’d like more information or would like to register your child for Camp Catch Your Breath, please contact Melanie Collinvitti at (304) 234-8897.
