Fruits and veggies to the rescue camp is set for 10 a.m.-noon, Aug. 8-12.

The Schaumburg Park  District’s 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 learning about superheroes, villains and the secret powers of healthy eating. In addition to tasting a variety of foods each day, campers will be treated to a superhero show with costumes, a bubble machine and creative art activities.

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.

Early registration is highly recommended. For more information, call (847) 490-7036 or visit www.parkfun.com.
