Camp Tiger Tails

Age-appropriate yet challenging, this wellness program features physical activity, structured recreation, social development and nutrition education. It is designed to combat poor diet habits and a lack of exercise — two major factors in Mississippi’s child obesity rate. Entertaining games, trips and events, set in a welcoming atmosphere, are led by a staff of devoted teachers and counselors.
