PENINSULA PUFFERS ASTHMA CAMP
"in the woods with wheezers"
A Camp for Kids with Asthma


ABOUT CAMP

June 17 – June 21 , 2024 Monday—Friday

Peninsula Puffers is a one week summer camp program held in conjunction with Camp Fire USA.  Held in Cooper Landing Alaska, children ages 8 -14 with asthma and food allergies spend the week enjoying camp activities while learning about their asthma & allergies in daily lessons with our medical staff. Educational topics include pathophysiology, management, usage of asthma & allergy tools, medications awareness and self awareness. Campers participate in a total of 1 ½ hours of education per camp day.  Peninsula Puffers has medical staff on site 24 hours a day for the duration of camp.


Registration:

Registration will be online only this year.  We have room for 10 kids, half girls and half boys.

2024 Costs

Recognizing that families have different abilities to pay camp fees, AAFA has instituted a three-tier fee system. All camper, regardless of tier are attending on a subsidized rate as we pay Camp Fire $810 per camper.

A tiered payment system allows you to identify the payment option that is most affordable for your family while still ensuring that all campers receive the same camp experience no matter what families pay.

To further ensure that all children have the wonderful opportunity to attend camp, financial assistance is available for families who cannot afford Tier 3. To apply for a scholarship click here.

Thank you to our donors for making scholarships and tiered pricing possible.

Tier I— $600 or 75% of True Camp Rate. This is the highest rate and more closely represents the true cost of camp, inclusive of all direct costs plus maintenance, insurance, utilities, equipment, etc.  

Tier II— $ 400 or 50% of True Camp Rate. This is the mid-tier rate that helps to offset Camp K’s operating costs, but does not reflect the true cost of operating summer camp programs.

Tier III—$ 200 or 25% of True Camp Rate. This is the lowest rate, which is as close as possible to the rate Camp Fire Alaska has historically offered. This price also does not reflect the true cost of operating summer camp programs.

There are 2 slots available.
