This resource is intended to increase education and awareness of Healthy Living to all program staff and participants of Community & Neighbourhood Service's Summer Programs. The intended outcome of this resource is to have an increased understanding by all leaders about the importance of incorporating Healthy Living into regular programming. Traditional programs will thus shift from playing games and crafts to including, understanding, and debriefing about the benefits of recreation programs in relation to Healthy Living.
This manual has information regarding the many benefits of leading a healthy life, however the main purpose of this manual is to provide ideas for activities and discussions that can be regularly incorporated into programs. Each activity includes a reflection/debrief component which is to be carried out as part of the activity.
