Get kids moving at the Pierce Youth Movement summer camp Aug. 15-18
The Pierce Youth Movement is coming!
Sixth, seventh, and eighth graders are invited to Pierce College Fort Steilacoom for a free summer camp devoted to health, wellness, and having fun. Activities will include games, sports, a visit from Rhubarb, mascot for the Tacoma Rainiers, yoga and weight training classes, and much, much more.
“We want to offer kids four days of fun packed with games, activities, and a sneaky bit of learning tossed in to carry them through the rest of their lives,” said Professor Lisa Murray, one of the camp organizers. “They’ll remember all the fun they had, but they’ll also be learning how to take care of their bodies with good nutrition, fitness, and stress management.”
The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 15-18 at Pierce’s Health Education Center, 9401 Farwest Dr. SW, Lakewood. Space is limited, so parents are encouraged to sign up their children early. Registration is available online. A camp T-shirt and daily lunches and snacks will be provided. Campers are asked to dress in athletic clothing and shoes (closed-toe, no sandals) and bring a bottle of water.
The Pierce Youth Movement is hosted by the Pierce College Diagnostic Health and Fitness Technician program, a vocational program that prepares adults to work as personal trainers. Students are given a strong background in exercise, nutrition, and general wellness, information they will share with the campers, said Murray.
