Camp Breathe Easy is a seven-day, six-night overnight camp for children, ages 7-13, with asthma. Camp Breathe Easy is for children with asthma who need medication and are limited in summer camping opportunities. The children learn asthma self-management techniques and coping strategies to better handle their illness. Children receive a traditional summer camp experience under the watchful eye of medical professionals who volunteer their time to the program. Campers swim, rappel off trees, fish, canoe in the lake, play soccer, basketball and miniature golf, and participate in ceramics and arts and crafts. The Camp is operated by the American Lung Association of Georgia and is one of the largest asthma camps in the U.S. serving up to 200 kids. Camp Breathe Easy is accredited by the American Camping Association. Camp Breathe Easy is held annually at beautiful Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, Georgia (about an hour east of Atlanta).
