What is it?
Our goals are to promote and position the value of the camp experience in supporting healthy lifestyles, fitness and lifelong healthy decision-making, while establishing relationships with organizations doing similar work and with a similar mission.
How to get involved?
We are actively looking for committee members from the Camp Community at levels to be part of this dynamic and innovative committee. The committee is also looking for representatives from the nutrition, nursing, physical education public health and research industries. If interested, please contact Vicky Flaig, MEd, RD at 916-734-4230 or email@example.com  for more information.
What to look forward to?
Keep a look out for our Needs Assessment. We need as many people as possible to complete this out to better meet the interests of the Northern California Camp Community. By next spring we hope to lay the ground work for meaningful educational webinars, trainings and programs centered on the Camp’s role in a child’s healthy lifestyle.
