Nutri-Cubs Camp To Promote Good Health and Fun

Children, ages eight to twelve, are invited to learn while having fun at Prairie View A&M University’s Cooperative Extension Program Nutri-Cubs in Pantherland Day Camp scheduled on campus August  11th.

This free event will be held in the Leroy Moore Gym at PVAMU from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  The camp is open to any youth, grades third thru sixth, and is on a first come, first serve basis, so all are encouraged to begin registering.

Cooperative Extension’s Family and Consumer Sciences staff and student interns plan to educate youth about nutrition, physical fitness and outdoor safety.  Youth will gain helpful information on the food guide pyramid, sunscreen safety and how to stay healthy by participating in physical activities such as   dancing.
