Enrollment is Open PRPS FREE Culture of Health Program

Qrcode.coh.videoEnrollment is now open for this free supplemental camp program. PRPS member municipalities positively affect the health and wellness of over 1.3 Million Pennsylvania residents. The Culture of Health initiative aims to provide local park and recreation professionals with a resource and framework to supplement camp programs with activities in the four essential areas of well-being: mental, social, intellectual, and physical health. 

To enroll, participants will view a short (9 min.) informational video and complete a survey about their current program.  Afterward, you will be sent a Culture of Health Guidebook written by park professionals, packed with ideas, resources, news, and activities that help incorporate all the core areas of well-being. Join the PRPS Health and Wellness committee and sign up today to receive your guidebook. With your help, we can continue our progress and develop a Culture of Health in our communities.
