Grand Strand Medical Center Sponsors Asthma and Diabetes Camps
May 05, 2014
Grand Strand Medical Center will sponsor its 16th annual Camp Air Waves for children with asthma and Camp Seven Seas for children with diabetes on June 10 – 13. The day camp will be held at HealthFinders in Coastal Grand Mall from 8:30am – 4pm.
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 and games fill the rest of the day.
