Camp Catch Your Breath has been making a difference in the lives of children with severe asthma since 1990. This statewide camp for ages 7 to 13 offers an opportunity for those who, as a result of their asthma, would not otherwise be able to participate in a "camp" experience. Children learn about the care and treatment of their asthma, proper nutrition, and how to have fun and exercise safely.
United Health Foundation conducts an annual fundraising drive for the camp. Monetary donations are greatly appreciated and help offset camp expenses including food and lodging for campers as well as equipment, supplies and educational material. In addition, scholarships are made available to children who would otherwise not be able to attend the camp.
