Info about the Healthy Kids Day Camp

In June of 2008, the Healthy Kids Day Camp was held in the northeastern region of Macedonia. Students from grades 4-6 were invited to attend, though due to budget limitations the number was capped at 25. All 25 spots were filled and the camp was a great success. This year, with the continued support of Blue Sky Youth Network, camp organizers would like to expand the camp to approximately 100 students. The camp is intended to promote healthy lifestyles through education in areas of fitness and nutrition while providing a safe, fun and active camp environment. The camp will take place from June 22-26, 2009, and will include youth volunteers from Blue Sky serving in the roles of counselors and instructors and students from grades 4-6 from the municipality’s two primary schools. The camp will be conducted entirely in the Macedonian language. Campers will be divided into groups of ten and each will be assigned two counselors or team leaders. Throughout each day camper groups will alternate between content sessions in which students learn in a classroom-like setting and physical sessions. To ensure a physically and emotionally safe camp environment, camp rules will be established and campers will be asked to pledge to follow these rules by signing a camp rules poster.
