Tell Michelle Obama: Camp Helps Children Get Moving


Remember the summer vacations you spent at camp? You made lifelong friends, developed important skills, and had the opportunity to get outside every day and exercise.

Maybe you remember swimming in a big lake with an unpronounceable name or riding a bike for the first time or hiking with other campers.  Maybe you learned how to swim or shoot freethrows or play softball.

No matter what your favorite activity was, you know that summer camp gives children the opportunity to get moving -- and to learn to love it.

Michelle Obama's Let’s Move program was launched with the goal of ending childhood obesity within one generation.

A key element of her plan is urging youngsters to become more active -- and where better to be active than at camp every summer?

Every child should have the opportunity for a summer vacation filled with fun and physical activity.

Urge Michelle Obama to recommend summer camp in her Let's Move campaign.
