Anatomy Academy camp, offered to kids in grades five through eight, will give youngsters an in-depth look at the human body and allow them to visit hospital departments to learn from experts in the field of medicine—from x-ray technicians to physical therapists. This camp is July 25 through July 29.

In Leadership Academy for Boys & Girls camp, children in grades five through eight will learn to be leaders in today’s society. Campers will learn critical thinking, communication, problem solving and team-building skills. This camp is August 1 through August 5.

For kids ages 11 through 16, Super Sitter: Babysitting Safety Camp, will teach kids the skills needed to be a mother’s helper or babysitter. Childcare and first aid will be covered, and kids will become certified in adult, child and infant CPR. This camp is August 8 through August 12.

HealthWorks Adventure Camp will teach children about the importance of healthy habits, including proper nutrition, exercise, sleep and personal hygiene. There also will be interactive activities, healthy cooking demonstrations and take-home crafts. This camp is for children ages 7 through 9 and is from August 15 through August 19.

The schedule for all four camp programs will include education in the Student Health Awareness Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. followed by instructional and free swim and fitness activities in CentraState’s Fitness & Wellness Center from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
