We welcome Sports Outreach and their popular camp-style curriculum featuring character time, sports, fitness, group games, structured health time, and more. Quality physical education programs are needed to increase the physical competence, health-related fitness, self-responsibility, and enjoyment of physical activity for all students so that they can be active for a lifetime. We strive to bring this to our students along with fun and friendships.
