FITGirl, Inc. Seeking Sponsors for Campers
Over 40 girls in the Omaha Metro Area are currently in need of financial assistance to be able to attend the FITGirl, Inc. (fitgirlinc.com) Campowerment 2018 Experience this summer. This empowerment and fitness camp will be held July 22-25 and July 29-Aug 1 at Platte River State Park for girls ages 8-14. The camp fee is $299 per child.
FITGirl, Inc is expecting over 200 girls to attend their 4th annual summer camp. For the second year at Platte River State Park, campers will spend three nights enjoying a variety of activities that help build confidence, instill healthy habits and promote diversity and kindness. Girls will participate in kayaking, horseback riding, meditation, yoga, archery, biking, hiking, nature walks, nutrition classes and hear from local female role models about bullying, social media, community involvement, substance abuse, peer pressure, body image and more.
There are many studies that conclude physical activity leads to higher self-esteem, especially among younger adolescent girls and girls who are overweight. However, as early as ten years of age, girls begin to become more sedentary, and their activity levels dropping by as much as 83% as they transition through adolescence.
