New: Summer Day Camp For Children Entering Grades 4-6
The Center of Excellence for Health and Wellness across the Lifespan presents:

Farm to Fitness
Eat Healthy, Be Healthy
Summer Day Camp at BGSU

For Campers Entering Grades 4-6

Date: June 24, 2013 - June 28, 2013
Time: 8:30am - 5:00pm

Today’s middle schoolers don’t fit a particular type. They range from elite athletes to experts on the latest technology. All tweens needs are different! To help them stay active and healthy regardless of their fitness level, we have developed a summer camp directed towards empowering tweens to make healthy eating and fitness choices for a lifetime.

Activities for the Week:

  • Monday - Do French Fries Really Come From a Drive Thru?
    Pack a sack lunch and join us on a trip to a working farm at the Wood Lane Farm. Transportation is provided by the BGSU Shuttle Service. Please dress accordingly as we may get dirty! An extra pair of shoes may be helpful when we return to campus in case we get muddy. We will plant our own mini crop watch grow over the next week and take home on Friday. Later we will return to campus for an afternoon of swimming at the Rec Center. Please bring a bathing suit and towel.
  • Tuesday - Chocolate is Not a Food Group!
    No need to pack a lunch today as we will be working with BGSU Chefs and Registered Dieticians to plan and create our own lunches and end of the week Family Picnic thanks to the Food Labs in the Family and Consumer Sciences Center and Chartwells Catering. Please dress for outdoor activities in the afternoon where we will enjoy a variety of outdoor sports.
  • Wednesday - Food is Fuel for the Body
    Everyone loves field trips! Today we will be getting a behind the scenes tour of Meijer’s. Now that we have learned where our food comes from, it is time to see how it gets from the farm to the store and then to our tables. We will learn how to make healthy choices from the many food options available at the store. Transportation is provided by the BGSU Shuttle Service. In the afternoon we will engage in more physical activities such as volleyball and participate in a campus scavenger hunt.
  • Thursday - Exercise is More Than Work, It’s Fun
    Today we will be working with many different specialists to help us be more fit. Most of us have heard about or taken the Presidential Fitness Test. Today we are going to learn about different fitness tests that can help us set goals for the activities that we want to be involved in and the level of fitness we set as our own goals. We will watch a movie and plan activities that help us determine the best the best way to fuel our bodies.
  • Friday - Move Your Body
    Now that we have learned about healthy food and fitness options, today we will learn about exercises that will help us meet our fitness and activity goals. We will work with kinesiologists (people who study the body in motion) and they will show us important exercise tips such as proper body positioning while exercising. We will have more outdoor fun in the afternoon and prepare for the picnics with our families this evening. Families welcome to join us in our picnic at 5:00 and enjoy the meal prepared by our campers.
