The Allied Health Department at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College will host a summer camp for kids that focuses on fun, fitness, education and safety.

The Healthy Heroes summer camp at UC Blue Ash College will be held from 8 a.m. to noon July 29–Aug. 2, on the UC Blue Ash campus. It is for children who will enter the 4th, 5th or 6th grades in the upcoming school year, and will be led by UC Blue Ash faculty.

Along with information about health and fitness, campers can explore possible career options in health care. There will also be age-appropriate CPR education.

“We have a lot of fun activities planned for the kids, both indoors and outside, and there will be an educational component. Participants will learn about how the heart works, how our bones grow, the value of nutrition and fitness, and basic first-aid and safety practices,” said Julie Gill, chair of the Allied Health Department and coordinator of the Healthy Heroes summer camp.

The Healthy Heroes Summer Camp at UC Blue Ash College is limited to the first 20 kids who register. Register your child online. All registrations must be submitted by July 18.
