Published:

COPAT (Community Outreach Positive Alternative Training) will host a youth event at Camp Carl, 8054 Calvin Road, Edinburg, for ages 8 to 16 from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Kids will enjoy hayrides, hot dogs and s'mores around the camp fire.

Classes for girls will center on healthy lifestyles, self-esteem, hygiene, and fitness.

The boys' classes will deal with bullying and choosing alternatives in fitness.

Healthy Substitutions Cooking Contest will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 12 at Firm Foundation Dining Hall, 241 Jefferson Ave., Ravenna.

People don't have to give up their favorite dish. With one substitution, a recipe can become healthier. The day will include healthy lifestyles information and a Zumba class.

All events are free and open to everyone. For additional information, call 330-327-6554.

Both events are sponsored by the Ohio Commission on Minority Health.
