Grand Strand Sponsors Asthma and Diabetes Camps

May 14, 2013

Myrtle Beach, SC - Grand Strand Regional Medical Center will sponsor its 15th annual Camp Air Waves June 11 – 14 for children with asthma and Camp Seven Seas for children with diabetes. The day camp will be held at HealthFinders at Coastal Grand Mall from 8:30 am – 4 pm.

Applications are now being accepted.  The camps are for children, ages 7 – 11, who have asthma or diabetes, require daily medication and are under a physician’s care.  The cost for the day camp is $25 which includes meals and all field trips and activities.  Scholarships are available.

“The goal of the camp is to help children manage their asthma or diabetes successfully through education and proper use of their medication,” says Mark Schecker, MD, allergist and medical director of the camps.  “We also want the kids to enjoy camp experiences such as field trips and other activities that they might shy away from because of possible asthma or diabetes problems.”

Each day will begin with a short asthma and diabetes education session.  Camp activities, including arts and crafts, field trips, games and music, fill the rest of the day.
