Healthy Families San Angelo's Sports Camp Sports Camp

The annual Healthy Families Sports Camp kicks off each summer with a curriculum offering children in the HFSA program a free sporting adventure in T-ball, basketball, and soccer.

Children ages three through eight have an evening of fun and get a great workout at Sports Camp.  At the camp they learn the rules and basic skills for T-ball, soccer, and basketball.  More important are the skills the children learn about social interaction and teamwork.  For the parents, the purpose of the camps is to encourage them to participate in their children's activities and introduce families to sports programs and activities available for kids in the community.

Healthy Families San Angelo's Childrens Fair Children's Fair

The Children's Fair was created by and is hosted by Healthy Families San Angelo.  Designed for kids and families, it is held each year on the 4th Sunday of April, recognized internationally as the Month of the Child.  The Fair is the Healthy Families local fundraising event.  Over 100 food, game, and activity booths are set up and run by nonprofit groups and organizations benefitting children's causes.

Participating organizations are able to earn funds for their children's projects by retaining 90% of the gross profits of their booths.  The cost of operating the Children's Fair is underwritten by business sponsors who sign on each year to help.  These sponsors enable Healthy Families to share profits with nonprofit organizations.  The Healthy Families Children's Fair is a 23-year tradition in San Angelo, one that families eagerly anticipate.  The Fair's focal point is the Open Stage for children to perform on.  Local dance schools, gymnastics teams, karate schools, church choirs, and individuals perform on the Open Stage.  In addition, the Area-Wide Coloring Contest is held for all kids from pre-K through 5th grade.  Generous businesses and individuals donate prizes for a giant prize giveaway that benefits Healthy Families.

Hundreds of volunteers make the Children's Fair happen each year.  The community spirit the Fair embodies, involving people from all walks of life, is a reflection of the importance San Angelo places on its youth.

Healthy Families San Angelo's Families' Swim PartyFamilies' Swim Party

At the end of August each year, Healthy Families participants are treated to our Families’ Swim Party at Brown’s Pool.  It’s an evening of swimming, diving, and splashing in the pool, playing on the swings and climbing equipment, and enjoying an evening meal (usually pizza and drinks) provided by Healthy Families San Angelo.  The pool is reserved just for us, and a lifeguard is on duty.  The Swim Party is a great experience for the whole family and a chance for parents to bond with their children while teaching them to float, swim, and dive.
