ine-year-old Taryn and her sister never thought they would be able to do this type of camp over the summer. However, the week-long camp allows kids with asthma and allergies to have fun with close supervision. The Executive Director of the Camp, Mary Hagen says, "We have a volunteer medical staff that comes in.... doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists." She says, if the kids run into any problems, they have the medicine available. They can also help with the breathing to make sure they can stay at camp.

The campers are allowed to do a number of activities including riding horses, swimming, rock wall climbing, kayaking, and lots of other outdoor fun because the medical staff is ready 24-7.
Hagen says they already had a life saving situation this past week in which they had to take a child to the ER to get the asthma under control. However, that child was able to stay at the camp after treatment.

Wow, I hadn't seen that list before! I really must look through the list of articles more closely!

I know that our daughter's daycamp has been very receptive to any requests I have made. It is through the city at one of the recreation centres and the kids swim 5x week and skate 2x. They have field trips each week.

It has really helped her come out of her shell. Because it's out of the same rec centre as her before and after school, many councilors are familiar to her and she's more at ease because of it.

Already registered for this year's AAIA camp at Wabamun Lake! My son loved it so much that he begged to let his little sister go this year too. Almost 8 months later, he is still saying it was the best time of his life so far ... if anyone wants more info, let me know.
