Come help us celebrate another great year of Camp Luv-A-Lung, an annual event for children with respiratory problems who have just completed grades 1-8. Sponsored by Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System (GHS) and GHS Respiratory Care Services, the camp helps children have a good time while receiving disease-specific education. Counselors are all healthcare staff with nurses on site and available around the clock. Camp Luv-A-Lung takes place at Pleasant Ridge Camp & Retreat Center in Marietta, SC.
- Low Ropes Course
- Arts & Crafts
- Nature Trails
Camper should arrive at Pleasant Ridge Camp and Retreat Center between 4-5 p.m. on Friday. Upon arrival, campers will check in at the Welcome Center. At this time, Camp Luv-A-Lung staff will go over medications and consent forms as well as cabin and counselor assignments.
Camp ends on Sunday at 11 a.m.
The medications for the entire time at camp should be brought with you and on arrival will be checked at registration. All medication should be marked with:
- Name of Camper
- Name of medication
- Dosage to be given
- Time of day to be given
If there have been any changes in your child’s medication since you completed their medical forms, please inform us upon your arrival to camp.
Camp Luv-A-Lung will have Albuterol, normal saline and oxygen available for emergency treatment only. We also have first-aid supplies and Tylenol.
Camp staff will not take messages for campers, unless it is an emergency. In case of serious discipline problems, parents or guardians will be notified to pick up their child. The camp phone number is (864) 546-1567
Camp Luv-A-Lung DOES NOT provide transportation. It is the Parent’s/Guardian’s responsibility to provide transportation to and from camp. If someone other than a parent/guardian will be picking up your child, please leave their name upon check-in. They will be required to show a photo I.D. in order to leave with your child. This is for the safety and security of your child.
