Active Kids Healthy Kids

Active Kids Healthy Kids is a strategic and comprehensive multi-year plan for improving physical activity opportunities and increasing participation rates for infants to 18-year olds. It also recognizes the integral role of family and therefore has some emphasis on awareness, education, and entry-level activity for the adult members of family. The strategy aims to serve those who are inactive to be active and those who are already active to remain active through into adulthood.

The Kingston Recreation Department targets youth by partnering with area schools to both increase and maintain recreational activities and foster an active lifestyle.

Through this strategic partnership, daily physical activity (DPA) is now a Health Promoting School curriculum requirement in both Pine Ridge School and Kingston Elementary.

Typical after school programs with take place at various times throughout the year include: • There are various programs that require leadership and instructors during the after school time period. If there is an activity that you would like to share with students as an after school program please contact the Village Office in Kingston.
