Camp Superkids is a week-long residential summer camp for children with asthma, ages seven-and-a-half to twelve.
Camp Superkids will be held July 10-15, 2016, at Summit Grove Camp, located in New Freedom, Pennsylvania, just over the Maryland border off Interstate 83.
While attending this summer camp, children will:
- Enjoy a full range of traditional camp activities, such as swimming, arts & crafts, archery, Zumba, outdoor team-building skills and more.
- Learn how to manage their asthma, thereby decreasing the number and duration of asthma episodes; increasing confidence in their ability to manage asthma; providing the children with knowledge to make independent and positive health choices; improving the children’s school performance; and increasing self-esteem.
- Gain a strong support system of friends with asthma and positive reinforcement from adults who volunteer their valuable time and services.
- Be attended to by registered nurses, a physician assistant, respiratory therapists and other non-medical personnel who are on-site the entire week.
To apply, download the application form here. The cost is $400. Scholarships are available for those who qualify. A $75 registration fee is due with the application. This registration fee is deducted from the balance of your camp fee.

All Camp Superkids counselors are volunteers that dedicate their time to spend a week with children to provide them with a safe, fun and educational camp experience. They come from various backgrounds and include registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physician's assistants, child life specialists, United States Marines, college and high school students, and more.
