Kids Fitness Camp

's Success Story

Working with the local Health Department and our county foundation I was able to offer 2 week long free fitness camps to kids in grades 4-6 in my community. Not only were my staff and I able to teach the kids how to incorporate fun into fitness, we were also able to share with them some tips for better nutrition, ideas for family activities, etc. Transportation was provided along with a healthy snack each day. At the culmination of each week, the kids were treated to a Subway lunch. They also received several "goodies" like a gym bag, a resistance tube, a jump rope, a water bottle and holder, etc. all free of charge. It was great to be able to help kids in my community have fun and get moving. This camp was a huge success and I look forward to being able to repeat it year after year.
