WASHINGTON, DC(RUSHPRNEWS) â€“July 3, 2008â€”As child obesity reports continue to grow, Celia Kibler, President of Funfit Inc. and co-creator of the Funfit fitness program opens a unique summer camp for children from age 3 to 12 in all shapes and forms where the mainÂ goal is to get and stay fit while having fun.
The Funfit summer camp is a place where children and young teens can stay active, fit and creative in a non-competitive, fun atmosphere. Located in Rockville, Maryland, this summer camp is a convenient way for parents to get their child to adopt a healthy and active life-style as they mature. The camp features non-competitive ball games, hoola-hoops, swimming noodles, parachutes games, even soccer and stick hockey. â€œWe promote non-competitive activities in order to increase the childrenâ€™s self-esteem,â€ says Kibler.
The camp welcomes children between the ages of 3-6 for half days and ages 6-12 for full days. Activities for the older children include magic shows, learning tricks, techniques, juggling, balloon animals,Â showmanship which results in building self-confidence and self-esteem. Other activities include circus stunts, ball balancing and stilt walking. The camp ends with a magic show with kids as the performers. The second half of the day is sports, games and craft, â€œOur center also offers a complete range of enrichment classes for kids ages 0-13 years including our newest Funfit program Kids Yoga, music, art, kung fu, infant massage & sign language.â€
In her continuous battle against child obesity, Kibler has created innovative fitness program and has recently equipped her center with Kids PACE Express Circuit equipment, a line of hydraulic resistant work out machines designed for kids.Â Her approach not only combats and prevents childhood and teen obesity, it is also specifically family-inclusive. Kibler stated â€œChildhood obesity in the United States affects 9 million children over the age of 6 and the only way to stop it is by teaching healthy habits at a young age,â€ and added , â€œThe way to educate them is by introducing all this knowledge through fun activities to the entire family. If itâ€™s not fun they will not want to learnâ€.
