Champ Camp for Kids with Asthma


For the second year, YMCA Camp Chingachgook and the American Lung Association of the Northeast are partnering to help children with asthma attend summer camp on Lake George!

Fun at Camp!


Campers involved in Champ Camp are enrolled as typical summer campers in a one-week session.


During the first skill class period each day, campers in Champ Camp meet with a team from the American Lung Association, including educators and respiratory therapists, to learn how to better understand and manage their asthma.
