Girls get ready for 'Camp iRock'

Girls get ready for 'Camp iRock'

The Arkansas Minority Health Commission (AMHC) is now accepting applications for Camp iRock 2012, to be held June 3-9 at Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center seven miles west of Little Rock. Camp iRock is a free, week-long experience that takes advantage of interactive dialogue, workshops, and exercises to promote physical activity, healthy lifestyles and self-confidence in young girls.

The common threads among diseases that disproportionately affect minorities are poor nutrition and obesity. As a result of this epidemic, the AMHC voted to add nutrition and fitness as an overarching focus. Camp iRock was created to curve the impact of poor nutrition and obesity in Arkansas. The 2012 camp will focus on empowering young girls with the tools they need to improve their health and lifestyle choices.
