With fewer of these opportunities over the past 10 years, and even *less* right now, Asthma Camp helps us deal with real society problems. Kids enjoyed education with their comradarie of kids with same issues. My son was psych'd to use his new knowledge to take care of himself at home...and teach us! Later, we got to Family camp, which was also awesome. Again, mix education with hearing other family's experiences, mistakes, and successes. Great support volunteers! This is the right way to take care of society's problems, in this case, Asthma and poverty...but it has to be consistent.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

heal the world and avoid some serious threats to our society! Asthma is directly related to poverty and then makes it even worse! This is a true solution. Gets us hands-on involvement to educate and help ourselves.

My son has visited Yosemite ridge for 3 years in a row for his Asthma. He loves it! This camp truely is a miracle worker. He looks forward every year to summer because of this camp. He was devistated when he found out this year had been canceled. My whole family also attended a weekend family asthma camp. This has been a very rewarding exprience because the whole family learns about asthma in a fun way. I would have to recommend this camp 100%.

I attended Camp Sierra as many years as was available to me and enjoyed every minute I was up there. It is a great experience for kids with asthma to take part in activities they probably would not get a chance to do any other place, or that they thought they weren't capable of. I made many good friends through yosemite ridge and even got my younger cousin to start going when he found out he had asthma. It is still to this day some of the best experiences of my life and even had me find a path I wanted to take in college to becoming a respiratory therapist. I even went back to volunteer as a counselor and would have enjoyed that very much if a last minute surgery hadn't prevented me from making it up.

The Great!
