Fundamentals Camp encourages children to be healthy, well rounded

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

WTOC's own Lynda Figueredo spoke to the children on Thursday attending the 2014 Fundamentals Academy about healthy eating, exercise and chasing your dreams.

Fundamentals Camp focuses on health and nutritional needs, developing a sense of artistic appreciation, encouraging community service and an understanding of the need and importance of intellectual development through science, technology, engineering and math.

"I think it is important because with most individuals, if you catch them young, you can tell them how to think and not what to think," said Executive Director of Today for Tomorrow, Inc. Jabari Bryant. "You give them a sense of purpose that they need to live a healthy lifestyle. They have to appreciate everything that is going on around them. That includes arts, that includes sports, that includes giving back to others."

Fundamentals Camp 2014 is still accepting registration for summer session.
