Superkids Mission

Camp Superkids provides a fun, safe and inclusive camp experience for children with asthma, while fostering relationships, personal growth, and asthma self-management skills.

2023 Camp Superkids: Sunday, June 25 – Friday, June 30

Camp Superkids is a week-long, overnight summer camp for kids ages 7-14 with asthma. Campers get to enjoy all of the fun of an outdoor summer camp while in a medically-safe environment. Additionally, campers ages 15-16 will have an opportunity to participate in the Junior Leader’s program designed to learn and develop leadership development skills while at camp.

Who Can Attend: Any young person, age 7-14 (traditional camp) and age 15-16 (junior leaders), who has moderate or severe asthma,

Cost: The cost of Camp Superkids is $825/camper. Some campers, ages 7-16, may be covered by their Health Insurance Providers. If not, the YMCA has opportunities for scholarships that we encourage you to utilize. See below (Registration Information) for details.

Staff: Our highly trained, skilled, and energetic Camp Ihduhapi staff work alongside doctors, nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, and nurse practitioners to provide a week full of fun traditional camp activities, as well as asthma education, and medical support.

Accommodations: Campers spend their session with two counselors and a group of other campers in a cabin group. Campers are assigned to their cabin based on age and gender. All food is provided (including options for allergies and other dietary requirements). Camp Superkids is peanut- and shellfish-free.

Transportation: Drop off (Sunday) and pick up (Friday) is at YMCA Camp Ihduhapi in Loretto (30 minutes west of the twin cities). Transportation is not provided.
