Our Mission & Goals
The Camp Get Fit Foundation’s (CGF)primary mission is to provide underserved children and families with health services to help instill a commitment to healthy living. Our secondary mission is to provide funding resources to support the programs of Healthy Kids & Teens, Inc.
In collaborative support with Healthy Kids & Teens, CGF offers culturally competent programs primarily focusing on families who experience a disproportionate burden of health disparities. CGF address environmental factors including lack of access to full-service grocery stores, increasing costs of healthy foods and the lower cost of unhealthy foods, and lack of access to safe places to play and exercise.
CGF programs have been tested and validated as a health improvement and health preventative strategy that yields results for implementation of improved and sustained health behaviors, and the reduction of obesity among youth and families. Our organizations have served over 25,000 youth and families since 2006.
