Since 2001, Alfred Brown, Sr. Founder of CaFairPlay, has devoted his attention to helping children with Asthma. At camp, they learn how to accept and stay on top of their Asthma symptoms. They realize that by acceptance and treatment, they can play sports, or be outside with their friends.
Through the camp experience, they see they can horseback ride, rock climb, swim, garden, hike, fish and participate in outdoor activities just like everyone else. The camp serves Northern California children with Asthma between 6-12. If there are any spaces left for a child, the siblings are allowed to accompany their sister or brother. Al explained, “It is important to understand and help their sibling with Asthma.”
