August 5-10, 2012 – Your child can breathe easier this summer at Camp Broncho of North Texas, a camp for children with asthma.
Camp Location and Staffing
Camp Broncho of North Texas is held at Camp John Marc, 70 miles southwest of Dallas-Fort Worth near Meridian, Texas. Three trained adults, one of whom is a medical specialist, are assigned to each cabin. Background checks are conducted on all camp volunteers. Camper cabins are air-conditioned, each having a complete bathroom and twin size single beds.
Medical Care and Medications
A medical team consisting of volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, and respiratory therapists provide medical supervision 24 hours a day. The dispensing of medicine is very closely monitored as prescribed by your child’s physician. Children are required to bring their own medications to camp.
Girls and boys, ages 7-12 that have moderate to severe asthma are eligible to attend.
Campers are selected based on the severity of their asthma as indicated by their physician.
Campers are notified in June if they have been selected to attend camp.

- Horseback Riding
