Breath 1-2-3: Asthma Camp for Kids

BC Lung Foundations’ Asthma Education Camp ‘Breathe 1-2-3’ offers a fun, educational setting for children ages 8-10 (with physician-diagnosed asthma) to learn about their asthma and enhance their management skills from certified asthma educators.

This four day camp empowers young individuals to lead healthier, happier lives by helping them understand their condition, recognize triggers, know what to do during an asthma attack, and adopt preventive measures. In addition to learning, kids will enjoy group games, arts and crafts, and a chance to win fun prizes.

Date: July 8-11, 2024

Times: 1:00pm to 4:30pm (each day)

Location: In-person at the BC Lung Foundation, 2675 Oak St, Vancouver, BC

Breathe 1-2-3 empowers children with asthma to:

  • Prevent asthma flare-ups
  • Recognize asthma symptoms when they first occur; carry out appropriate management steps
  • Discuss, solve asthma-related problems with parents, teachers, medical professionals, teachers, and friends
  • Feel more confident, using everyday tips to manage their asthma
  • Decrease their school absenteeism due to asthma

We are also offering a $1,000 travel subsidy for qualified registrants living outside of Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. Every participant receives a backpack containing 'Breathe 1-2-3' educational materials.

Kids who live with asthma can breathe better, and lead healthier, happier lives – they just need to learn how. First come, first served - spots limited.
