Penn State Hershey gives children the chance to be Health Detectives this summer

Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital is offering a Health Detective activity program over the summer for school-aged children. Booklets can be picked up at the main hospital information desk at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

To be a Health Detective:
1.  Complete the activities and pledge in the enclosed booklet at home, at your summer camp or day care program, or with friends.
2.  Complete the registration form and have a parent, teacher or adult sign the form to indicate all activities have been completed.
3.  Return the provided registration form by Aug. 1.

From 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7, there will be a celebration for all children and their families who have completed the activities and pledge in the booklet. The event will include a visit by the Penn State Nittany Lion, a tour of the Life Lion hangar, and various activities and refreshments. The celebration will be held at the University Fitness and Conference Center tent on the Penn State Hershey campus.

At the celebration there will be prizes. Participants will receive a free wellness backpack from the Penn State Hershey PROWellness Center and be entered into a raffle to win the grand prize of a family four-pack of one-day admission tickets to Hersheypark for the 2015 summer season.

Questions about the Health Detective program can be directed to Judy Dillon at 717-531-4413.
