ACA Supports Nutrition, Healthy Eating, and Healthy Lifestyles at Camp

Posted: July 02, 2014

The American Camp Association (ACA) has a long history of advocating for the health of children, including fighting obesity through healthy eating.  We provide resources to camps to help them develop programs offering appropriate foods and beverages to kids.

ACA supports the Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Standards for Early Childhood and Afterschool Programs  (HEPA) — which specifically include standards for healthy beverages. Additionally, ACA is a member of the Healthy Out-of-School Time Coalition (HOST) and also works with other organizations to promote the health of children.

“ACA seeks to educate camps and parents about healthy beverages and foods in the camp environment. We believe that changes in behavior are best facilitated through educational partnerships with camps, organizations, parents and kids,” said Peg Smith, CEO of the American Camp Association. 

ACA will continue to work with parents and organizations to find ways to help children and youth practice healthy life habits.
