Free Camp to Get Kids Fit This Summer

Free Camp to Get Kids Fit This Summer

Posted: Updated:
BAY MINETTE, Alabama -

Infirmary Health is offering a free camp for kids, ages 7-11, June 10th-14th, from 8AM-noon, at three locations: Prohealth Fitness Center in Mobile, North Baldwin Fitness Center in Bay Minette, and Thomas Fitness Center in Fairhope. Fifteen kids are being accepted into each location. The idea behind Camp Fit Kids is to show kids that fitness can be fun, and teach them some healthy habits they can use for life. The children will be lead by certified instructors and will do indoor and outdoor activities. Brian McGrew is the team leader at North Baldwin Fitness Center. He says the camp is a blast for the campers. "It's going to be a fun camp, because they are going to run, do hula hoop, do hopscotch, you name it. We are going to the all over the gym inside and outside, not the same things every day."  He adds that swimming is often a favorite part of the week.  The camp has been in existence for several years now.

A physician referral is required to attend the camp. Again, the camp is free. To register, click this link: http://infirmaryhealth.org/. Look for the "Operation Fit Kids" box on the main page.
