Each year the state 4-H Food & Fitness Board hosts a fun-filled weekend for elementary-age 4-H Club members called Food & Fitness Camp.
The purpose of 4-H Food & Fitness Camp is to help young people learn basic nutrition, simple food preparation techniques and fun fitness activities they can do alone or with friends.
All of the lessons are created and conducted by members of the state 4-H Food & Fitness Board. These teens work all year to develop educational activities that reinforce the nutrition and fitness lessons the children learn in school and in the 4-H Club program.
Each year, the 4-H Food & Fitness Board creates the theme for the camp. This year theme is "Made in the USA - 4-H Food & Fitness Way!" This year's camp will be paritially sponsored by Eat 4-Health grant sponsored by National 4-H and United Healthcare.
In order to participate in this awesome 4-H camp, you must contact your parish agent. Each parish can send a team of four campers and two adults. The camp will be held March 16-17, 2013, at Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center.
