ADA Project Power
Project Power is the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) initiative to offer school aged youth interactive sessions on nutrition education and physical activity to foster active living and healthy eating. The program will empower youth to adapt healthy lifestyle habits and encourage youth and families to develop sustainable healthy lifestyles within the household. This summer camp experience will offer kids an opportunity to make and try a healthy snack every day, learn about nutrition, and play games that increase their physical activity in a fun way!
Healthy Living Day Camp
In collaboration with the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA), the YMCA of Silicon Valley is taking initiative to slow the trajectory of childhood obesity through health promotion, nutrition education, increased physical activity and family involvement for elementary and middle school aged children in underserved communities to prevent obesity, diabetes and the complications. Through interactive sessions for youth and families, our end goal is to improve and maintain increased physical activity levels in youth, empower children to adapt healthy lifestyle habits and to encourage and develop sustainable healthy lifestyles within the household. Utilizing the Catch Kids Club (CKC) curriculum, our Healthy Living Day Camp is composed of nutrition education and physical education/activities to foster active living and healthy eating.
