Summer vacation for kids is becoming a time with less physical activity. Many students reported they spend three or more hours in front of a screen. This summer, we partnered up with Boys & Girls Club of Elgin to help its members stay active and learn about healthy living. The Boys & Girls Club of Elgin have implemented “Step It Up for the Summer” this program helps keep the kids active.
The kids have the opportunity to compete in a step count challenge, soccer club, swimming program and other daily activities. Members have three swim lessons a week to help build the skills and confidence in the pool.
