The University of Pittsburgh is glad to announce the creation of a New Summer Program for kids at TREES HALL. The Kinder Kinetics and Saturday's Kids programs have joined forces to offer Pitt's Summer Kids Camp. This new collaboration will continue to provide quality skill instruction in a variety of age-appropriate activities. The major changes will be regarding the age ranges of the children (3-13), expansion of activity offerings, and the different hours of operation. In all, these changes will promote an ability to offer a greater diversity of choices and participants to meet the physical activity needs within our community.
The Community Leisure-Learn Program was initiated by the University of Pittsburgh over 35 years ago as a community outreach Service Program under its Department of Health and Physical Activity. It is the University’s oldest outreach program to date and was designed to assist local residents optimize their quality of life through improving their overall health and well-being. Located at Trees Hall, a number of programs are year-round for both youth and adults.
The Community Leisure-Learn Program strives to promote health and well-being, across the life span, through the teaching and study of enhancement of exercise performance; education for wellness and disease prevention; control and learning of movement skills; and stress reduction and relaxation.
