LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Kids can have an active spring break thanks to the YWCA of Greater Lafayette.

The YWCA is having a spring break camp next week to keep kids busy and entertained during their week off. Students ages 5 to 12 years old can attend.

The camp focuses on educating children about nutrition to help develop healthier lifestyles.

“We all know that the childhood obesity is rising in our country. So, in all of our camps, we focus on activity and just learning how to have a healthy lifestyle,” said Youth and Adult Program coordinator Janae Kraud.

Kraud said the camp will have plenty of activities to keep the children entertained.

“It’ll be a place to just kick off summer. We have a lot of fun activities planned, and the kids will be active Monday through Friday, and they’ll probably be tired when they come home,” said Kraud.

The YWCA is still accepting applications for the camp. To register visit the YWCA on Sixth Street in Lafayette.

The camp runs Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It costs $100 per child for the week.
