Children whose asthma is severe enough to prevent them from attending a regular summer camp will have priority in registration, Camp Director Rhonda Scoby said.
“We rely on physicians and school nurses to help us identify the sickest kids, those who will benefit the most from attending asthma camp. We want kids whose experience at Texas Asthma Camp will make a real and positive difference in their lives,” Scoby said in a written statement.
A fee of $15 is required to register. The cost is $185, plus the registration fee. Financial assistance to attend is available through the Texas Chest Foundation.
For information or to register a child, call the Health Science Center at 903-877-7075 or visit the camp’s website at texasasthmacamp.com.
