Myrtle Beach, SC — Grand Strand Health is sponsoring its 20th annual Camp Air Waves for children with asthma and Camp Seven Seas for children with diabetes on June 19 - 22. The day camp will be held at HealthFinders in Coastal Grand Mall from 8:30 am - 4 pm.
Applications are now being accepted. The camp is for children, ages 7 - 12, 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, 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, in a fun and non-threatening environment" says Mark Schecker, MD, allergist and medical director of the camps. "We want the kids to enjoy camp experiences such as field trips and other activities that they might shy away from because of these conditions, and to also realize that they are not alone in dealing with these issues."
Each day of camp 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.
