Description:

Breathe Pennsylvania, southwestern Pennsylvania’s

only locally-based lung health organization, announced that enrollment is

now open for the 31th annual Camp Huff-n-Puff for children with asthma. This

year’s event will take place August 13-16 at the Jumonville Camp and Retreat

Center in Uniontown, Pa.

The four-day overnight camp is designed for children ages 8 to 13, and

enables campers to participate in educational sessions covering

self-management of their asthma. A staff of medical doctors, nurses,

respiratory therapists and volunteers—including counselors with asthma—will

be on hand at all times to help campers enjoy a safe, educational and fun

experience. Supervised activities include swimming and team challenges, and

campers will enjoy air-conditioned cabins and three meals per day.

Camp tuition is $125 for residents of western Pennsylvania. Breathe

Pennsylvania also offers full and partial scholarships, based on financial

need.

Breathe Pennsylvania, headquartered in Cranberry Township, Pa., helps people

of all ages in southwestern Pennsylvania achieve and maintain optimal lung

health through education, prevention, awareness and direct services. The

organization, which serves a 10-county area, is dedicated to equipping

residents of southwestern Pennsylvania with the knowledge and tools they

need to become advocates for their own lung health.
