This year's summer theme is Building a Healthy Community: Starting With Me, My Neighborhood, My Nation. Each morning the children arrive at camp ready to "Move It Cincinnati Style!"
Marthe leads them in exercise--a new song and routine each week.
Also on Fridays we've begun inviting special guests. Last Friday (7/2/10), CPS Superintendent Mary Ronan, principals, central office staff, and our local fire department joined us for a great work out to the Jackson 5. Afterwards they joined the kids for breakfast and Ms. Ronan spoke to them about the importance of summer camp, healthy bodies and minds.
Astronaut Mike Foreman visited on Friday, June 25th and the children were really interested in his training and experiences in space. His message was never give up on your dreams.
These guests have provided wonderful support to the healthy messages we've been providing all summer, including Movin It, recording our minutes for a service project, nutrition enrichment, personal development, and healthy snacks.
Keep your eye out for our last, and very public, Movin It in the Mornin on Thursday, July 22, 9am. We'll be on Fountain Square and everyone will be at our mercy. You should come!
