Parents looking for a unique way to keep their children active, healthy and occupied this summer are encouraged to sign up for Camp LIFE at SOMC.
“Camp LIFE is a fun opportunity for kids to make new friends, get fit, and learn skills that will help them stay healthy long after camp is over,” Brad Zieber, supervisor of PT, PEC and Special Projects at the SOMC LIFE Center, said.
The program is open to children ages 7 to 13. The next session of the camp will take place July 7-11, with drop-off at 8:45 a.m. and activities lasting from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day at the SOMC LIFE Center. Off-site educational opportunities are also scheduled.
“During camp, we teach children the basic principles of nutrition and exercise through cooking and physical activities that keep them entertained,” Zieber said. “We prepare lunch and snacks together, play healthy games, and stress the importance of fitness through daily walks, swimming and other sports. We’ve designed Camp LIFE in a way that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of physical condition or ability. Our goal is to lay the foundation for healthy living in a fun, supportive environment.”
Cost to participate is $85 per child. For more information or to register, please call 740-356-7650.
