ProActive Kids program description
Through the program, ProActive Kids are engaged in a variety of PAK PLAN activities Monday, Wednesday and Friday for eight weeks, including: PAK Fitness, PAK Nutrition and PAK Lifestyle. Each educational lesson and fitness activity is designed to make a significant impact, while building a foundation for lifelong success in the areas of fitness, personal health and self-esteem.
