Summer camp gives kids a taste of Hollywood

Camp Coordinator Melissa Grubbs Camp Coordinator Melissa Grubbs

This week, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital HealthWorks is hosting "camp Hollywood." More than 90 children from ages six to twelve are learning how to stay healthy.

The camp has a Hollywood theme. The campers will even produce short films about staying fit.

"Our goal is to get them out of the house and get them doing something active. Show them how fitness can be fun. Teach them some healthy cooking tips that they can do at home and maybe take that home and let their mom and dad help them do it," said Camp Coordinator Melissa Grubbs. 

 The camp is only open to children of Phoebe employees, physicians, and volunteers.
