July 5 Deadline approaching to register your child for the Summer Fit Camp.

GREAT BAY(DCOMM):—  Collective Prevention Services (CPS) is organizing once again a free Summer Fit Camp for children ages 9-12 years old, which will be held at the Caribbean International Academy (CIA) in Cupecoy from July 10th to 15th 2017.

The deadline for registration is July 5th; space is limited. Persons interested in participating in the camp as a group leader can also request for registration.

Forms can be obtained from the CPS office at the Vineyard Park Office Building in Philipsburg.

The goal of the health camp is to promote and educate children on healthy eating habits and encourage physical activity to promote healthy behavior change and combat the increase of obesity on our island.

The children will be divided into groups of five and will have their own group leader appointed to them. The group leader’s role is to supervise and support the children while participating in activities to motivate and encourage participation.

Organized activities are dance, adventure hike, gardening, pool activities, cooking demonstration nutrition sessions and motivational sessions.

The children will learn about the healthy meal and snack choices, healthy food portions, and the importance of drinking water rather than juice. They will be exposed to good sportsmanship, team building activities and will also receive knowledge positive self-esteem and confidence.

An orientation meeting will take place 6:30 pm on July 7th, 2017 at the CPS Office. The orientation meeting will provide parents and guardians with information related to the camp such as Camp rules, meals provided, scheduled activities, pick up and drop off location (which is at Raoul Illidge Ports Complex).

If your child does not have any pre-existing health conditions but has an overweight concern, then this camp is the ideal opportunity for your child to participate in healthy activities.
