Help us support scholarships for Kamp K’aana
Children’s Health is working with the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas to introduce the Kamp K’aana program this summer at YMCA Camp Grady Spruce. Kamp K’aana is a 2-week overnight summer camp program for kids 10 to 14 years old who have obesity and are ready to make a change.
K’aana means “health and “wellness” in Alabama Coushatta Indian language.
At camp, kids live in cabins with counselors, who are college students trained in building teamwork and friendship. The campers enjoy fun activities all day, they have a healthy, nutritionally balanced meal plan, and they learn about better food choices and how to change habits. Campers finish with improved self-esteem and confidence. This program has been offered for over 10 years at several other camps in Texas and in Wisconsin.
Our team for the Children’s Health Red Balloon Run&Ride will raise scholarship money for Kamp K’aana. Please help provide this fantastic K’aana experience by a contribution.
K’aana campers describe their experience:
“I liked making new friends & never being bored here & always being active and having fun”
“I like the great people I get to hang out with and that I get to have fun while being healthier.”
“I felt welcome and it was fun.”Help us support scholarships for Kamp K’aana
