Aldine ISD students get start on healthy Lifestyles by attending H.A.P.P.Y Summer Bootcamp
It’s never too early to start a healthy lifestyle and that’s why a group of Aldine ISD students spent a week this summer at the H.A.P.P.Y. (Healthy Attitudes Promote Positive Youth) Summer Bootcamp sponsored by the Memorial Hermann Nimitz Clinic.
The camp was held July 15-19, and 13 AISD students in fifth – eighth grade participated.
The weeklong camp consisted of daily sessions that included an hour of daily exercise, a medical evaluation, a nutrition consultation and a self-esteem group counseling session. Campers also enjoyed a daily arts and crafts session.
The sessions promoted a healthy lifestyle through guided practice, according to Ashley Scott, MPH, PA-C, the camp organizer.
