Crozer-Keystone and the Healthplex® Sports Club will once again offer an Asthma Day Camp designed for asthmatic children ages 7 to 12. The camp combines fitness, conditioning and sports with a daily asthma education. Participants are guided by professionals to achieve exercise potential within a safe and challenge fitness training environment.
Because of their condition, many children who suffer from asthma do not have the chance to experience all the activities that traditional camps offer. This camp allows children to build friendships, explore new opportunities and participate in fun activities. This program is ideal for children and adolescents who have difficulty controlling their asthma, may frequent emergency departments, tend to avoid taking their medicine, and have exercise-induced asthma.
The Healthplex® Sports Club is located at 194 West Sproul Club in Springfield. The camp will use all of the club’s facilities which include 10 indoor tennis courts, three basketball courts, two indoor pools, fitness equipment, a 1/5 mile running track, squash and racquetball courts, and a café.
For more information about Asthma Camp, call Tonya Merrill at (610) 328-8874. All applications must be submitted with a $25 application fee and a doctor’s written asthma written recommendation. Camp enrollment is limited, so participants are encouraged to apply early.
