Summer Day Camp

The purpose of the Camp Get Fit Summer Day Camp is to demonstrate the impact that a 7 week, eight hours daily program that focuses on health, nutrition and physical activity has on the physical, cognitive, and attitudinal attributes concerning youth. Each week, we have a specific health, nutrition, and fitness focus.

We explore areas such as: the USDA My Plate, Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, the Heart, the Muscles, and the Brain. Old School Fitness and Fast Food Fridays help give campers practical strategies to live healthy.
