Allentown Academy Summer Camp

June 4, 2012 - 4:23pm -- tfrank

Thank you to all who supported the Allentown Summer Academy summer food program!  It was a great success.  Our goal for our summer camp this year was to empower children to make healthy choices.  We did this by making fruit and vegetable smoothies and healthy snacks together every day, having time for daily recreation, and by learning fun ways to think about food through art, culture, science and gardening.  In addition to our program, we welcomed the Knoxville Carnegie Library every Monday, FitWits and Claudia Neely, a behavioral specialist.
