A Nutrition Camp will be offered Wednesday through Friday, Oct. 5-7, at MTSU Campus Recreation for local students in fourth through sixth grades.
The camp dates coincide with Rutherford County Schools’ scheduled fall break. The registration deadline is Monday, Oct. 3.
Emily Coffman, camps coordinator, said the camp will emphasize healthy eating habits, healthy snacking and a variety of ways to stay active. Participants also will have the opportunity to prepare their own fun, healthy snacks.
Cost of the three-day camp is $100. It’s scheduled from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day in MTSU’s Student Health, Wellness and Recreation Center, located on Blue Raider Drive just southeast of the roundabout.
After-camp care also is available for an additional $15 per day per camper. Camp costs, plus any aftercare, must be paid in full at registration.
