Happy Monday,

I hope everyone had an awesome 4thof July! The weather has been fantastic and the days are starting to get hotter as we head into the middle of the summer. In our park agencies, it is important to continue to share information on how to stay healthy, hydrated and exercise safely in the heat.

My current blog discusses how drinking plenty of fluids is critical no matter if you are sitting in the sun, playing sports or traveling, It is especially critical for youth camp programs to share this information among the kids. Children do not necessarily know the importance of drinking water before, during and after their activities. Dehydration is common, no matter the temperature! Please read my current blog to gather information and tips on how to share and encourage your community to stay properly hydrated!

Continue to share information among your community by using social media! Posting facts about staying fit and hydrated on Facebook and Twitter will only raise awareness on staying healthy during the hot summer days. If you have any ideas or want to share how you keep your community hydrated during the summer months, then please email us or submit them on thewellnesssite here:(,
