The Be Fit and Health Wise vision began in 2011 as a summer day camp program for children ages 6-14. From its launch, the goal of the program has been to educate students on how to make healthy choices, both with nutrition and exercise. Through a mix of outdoor activities and indoor groupwork, we learn the ways in which our bodies and minds are affected by what we eat and how we move. Each year 40 to 50 children, pre-teens, and teenagers take part in energizing experiences focusing on promoting healthy lifestyle choices – all at a beautiful local campground and under the close supervision of RKM social workers and camp staff.
Entering its 12th year, we are excited to welcome our students to camp with a variety of creative, educational, and recreational exercises designed to teach us the importance of being healthy away from electronic devices. We will stretch and take walks daily, create amazing crafts, prepare smart snacks, and get exercise playing kickball and gaga ball – all without screens!
Transportation to the camp departs every morning from RKM Primary Care at 11990 Jackson Street in Clinton. We will also run a pick up route to any East Feliciana School-Based Health Center.
