About CaFairPlay

About CaFairPlay a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2001. We provide educational assistance to children ages 6-12, who suffer from Asthma. This is achieved by organizing each summer a camping experience free of cost to children with mild to severe asthma. All California FairPlay activities including the camp are supported by donations.  California FairPlay is based in Rancho Murieta, California, and serves the greater Sacramento Region.

CaFairPlay Mission Statement:

CAFairPlay is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with Asthma. Summer camp is dedicated to educating our youth on how to care for themselves, build self-esteem, and provide a fun and learning environment.

The entire Asthma Camp Crew ~ Volunteers and Kids

Volunteers present at the camp include:

  • Approximately 30 Counselors

The camp is run with a ratio of 1 counselor per 2 campers. Additional volunteers are involved in the coordination and organization of the camp and administration of the organization. Camp is held in Livermore, at the Taylor Family Foundation “Camp Arroyo“.

Why did we team up with the Taylor Family Foundation?

The Taylor Family Foundations Camp Arroyo Program is unique. It’s a place where children with special needs are free to just be kids! They are accepted as they are. The true angels that live amongst us.

It’s a place where children are surrounded by other children with similar conditions and individuality is encouraged. This also is what CA FairPlay is all about. Providing a rich camp experience for the children with Asthma, teaching them they are special, how to handle their asthma without shame, and showcasing the importance of taking care of their health/asthma so they can and do participate in school activities like other children.
