Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) June 22, 2015
Power Systems is proud to announce its involvement with Camp Courage on behalf of the Sidney Albert Jewish Community Center (Albany JCC), located in Albany, NY.
Twenty 8-11 year olds will begin an 8-week day camp designed specifically for low-income families at the Albany JCC on June 29, 2015. Campers will spend their days at both the Albany JCC and at Camp Olam, located in Grafton, NY. Each day, Camp Courage campers will participate in training and exercise, educational presentations and discussions, and fun camp activities and sports. Campers will be guided by Personal Trainers, Nutritionists, and Behavioral Specialists.
Power Systems donated several pieces of equipment to Camp Courage, including medicine balls, battle ropes, and reaction/reflex balls. Vice President and General Manger of Power Systems, Linda Miller, is excited about the opportunity to provide equipment for the camp. “Camp Courage speaks to the heart of Power Systems and our parent company, PlayCore’s, core values. We believe that various forms of play, recreation, and physical activity are essential throughout life as they provide a healthy life balance and greatly enrich people of all ages and abilities.”
Camp Courage is in its first year, and according to Thomas Wachunas, Director of Health and Wellness at Sidney Albert Albany JCC, “This camp means a lot to all our staff. What has made it take off is all the great people and companies like [Power Systems]. Camp Courage will help kids and families by introducing exercise and nutrition, behavior modifications, and support. Kids will bring home tips for parents as well as resources that families can use.”
