The Town of Fletcher Park and Recreation Department partnered with local organizations and agencies to give day camp participants the opportunity to hear about diet and physical activity, and how these behaviors affect a heart-healthy lifestyle. The focus of this program was to excite and educate children about heart-healthy eating and physical activity.
Partners included a local fitness club, the Henderson County Partnership for Health, the American Red Cross, Cooperative Extension Service, and the Henderson County Health Department. Partners and staff provided talks, demonstrations, games, activities, and exercises that emphasized the importance of a heart-healthy lifestyle. A favorite among the children was participation in daily physical activity and eating heart-healthy snacks.
