The Schaumburg Park District’s fun, engaging Fruits and Veggies to the Rescue Camp taps into youngsters’ enthusiasm of superheroes, inspiring them to eat healthy. Children ages 4 to 6 will love drawing and dressing up as superheroes to battle the ”Germ Guys” and “Junk Food” characters. Campers also will make delicious edible art out of fresh fruits and veggies while tasting a variety of new foods each day.
Other activities focus on fun experiments with food and gardening and learning to build muscles through the “wacky workout” gym. Children also will make superhero masks, enjoy an edible scavenger hunt, track their tasting efforts and receive a special token for a healthy treat at a local grocery store, restaurant or farmers market.
Registration is required. Camp runs from 10 a.m. to noon daily from Aug. 3-7 at the Pat Shepherd Center, 421 N. Springinsguth Road.
