Enrollment for the Healthy 2B Me 2018 Summer Camp is now open for children ages 7-10. Now in its 6th year, the University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health wellness camp combines physical fitness and fun interactive activities with a unique public health message.
The week-long day camp exposes kids to all the summer fun activities they love like swimming, yoga, and Zumba, plus team building, cooking demonstrations, and art activities, while learning about sun safety, dental hygiene, tobacco prevention, nutrition, germ safety, and more!
“The idea behind Healthy 2B Me is to instill healthy behaviors in young children,” said Cynthia Thomson, PhD, RD, director of the program and a professor in the UA Zuckerman College of Public Health. “Our summer camp allows kids to spend a week indulging in all these wonderful healthy behaviors that we hope will last them a lifetime.”
Lessons are taught by experts from the UA Canyon Ranch Center for Prevention and Health Promotion and members of the Tucson Community.
The camp is located at Las Abuelita Community Center, 440 E. 26th St. in South Tucson. Sign your child up now for one of three sessions: June 4-8, June 11-15, and July 9-13. Camp hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
