Montgomery County Recreation, in partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), as part of the “Be Active Montgomery!” initiative, has created an online Summer Activity Calendar for children. Much like a summer reading list, the calendar lists games, activities and fitness challenges for kids to mark off each day of the summer break.
Helping to address the problem of childhood obesity in the Washington, D.C. area, the campaign makes residents aware that a healthier lifestyle can be achieved in incremental steps.
In addition to the calendar, the “Be Active Montgomery!” website features weekly wellness tips, opportunities for recreational activities in Montgomery County, wellness resources and suggestions for pool games, outdoor neighborhood games and other fun summer activities.
