Monday kicked off a week
of health for elementary students in Angelina County.
The Junior League of
Lufkin hosted their 5th Annual Camp get Fit/ Kids in the Kitchen, at the First
United Methodist Church in Lufkin. The goal of the camp is to teach students
how to make healthier choices.
There are three sessions
throughout the day for the kids, cooking, classroom and an activity all geared
towards living a healthier life.
"We think its
important to start at a young age so that these can be life-long habits that
the students will carry with them for a long time, we have a local teacher
coming in to help the students with the meal proportions when they're eating,"
said Monica Gunter, Camp Get Fit.
Even though the camp started today, its not
too late to sign up.
Organizers say to show up at the First United
Methodist Church at 9 a.m. to register, the cost is 10 dollars.
