This time of year, our NB3FIT coaches and program youth are usually in full swing with summer soccer leagues and golf camps! However, due to the uncertain times we’re all navigating through, the NB3FIT team has shifted its energy and creativity to focus on providing virtual programming to the youth!
In early July, NB3FIT launched the 2020 NB3FIT Summer Camp! The virtual camp is focused on providing fun activities for youth to do alongside their peers and coaches – while in the safety of their homes. The curriculum was built out to include physical activities, learning exercises, nutritional snack making and confidence building activities.
The NB3FIT staff prepackaged all the boxes and delivered them to the homes of the youth every Monday. In each box, were the supplies needed for the upcoming days of programming. From feedback from parents, youth enjoyed receiving the boxes and was something they looked forward to receiving each week! Bright and early Tuesday mornings, the youth would join the NB3FIT Zoom call with their fellow peers and coaches! Three hours a day, three times a week the youth and coaches were “together” again.
We know being distanced from one another is hard, so even this little glimpse of “community” provided to the youth has proven to be a spark of joy and something to look forward to for both youth and our coaches.
With one-week left, summer programming is winding down, but the NB3FIT team will continue to provide tools and resources for Native youth to stay healthy and active!
