Knowledge, resilience, and effectiveness of education in a young teen asthma camp.

Academic Article


  • A young teen asthma camp was developed as a 3-day residential experience in a traditional camp setting offering activities such as swimming, canoeing, horseback riding, ropes, course crafts, and games. The overall purpose, goals and plans for the camp experience were developed by a team of nurse educators, nurse practitioners, clinicians (nurses and physicians) with experience in asthma management, and camp directors. Feasibility and outcomes were measured for the camp using materials in the Power Breathing Program for teens developed by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and questionnaires developed by the Consortium of Children's Asthma Camps.
