Heading to summer camp for the first time is always a little unnerving. But for a child with allergies or asthma, there are special concerns.
 
For these children, a few precautions can make summer camp a safe and fun experience, said Dr. Stephen Tilles, president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
 
"Summer camp is often a child's first big activity away from home -- whether it's a day or overnight camp," Tilles said in a college news release. "And every kid should have the opportunity to spread their wings and try something new without worrying about their health," he added.
