It's hard to keep kids enthused about school when testing is over and the countdown to summer break has begun, but the Family Resource/Youth Service Center (FRYSC) and Community Education helped the fifth graders at the Edmonson County 5/6 Center do just that with the annual Health Camp today during school.
FRYSC 5/6 Center Coordinator Lynette Saling said the event is all about encouraging healthy and safe habits. "We want students to know that you can be healthy and make good choices while also having fun," she said.
Saling said the Health Camp has been a favorite event for kids for the past 10 years or more. "It takes lots of different people from the community to help with the camp," she added. "We'd like to thank everyone who helped, including the football team, KSP, Mammoth Cave National Park, the Extension Office, the Sheriff's Office, Kick'n Country Line Dancing, District Nurse Miranda Elkins, Edmonson EMS, as well as the 5/6 Center PTO, Community Education, and so many other volunteers."
She said the PTO helped fund the event and prizes that were given out throughout the day. She also noted that the event is in conjunction with the Safety Camp held for 6th graders each year.
