Camp Superkids

Camp Superkids

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 7-12, 2019, 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 $50 application fee is due with the application. This fee is deducted from the balance of your camp fee.

For more information, e-mail or contact Heather Dougherty, camp administrator, at 717-578-0465, or Ceal Curry, child life program coordinator at JHBMC, at 410-550-0374.
