Nick's KidFIT experiences have been amazing. He always arrives home having had a full day of good times and usually talking about a new friend. The counselors manage to involve every child in the games and activities, regardless of skill level, and keep the focus on physical fitness and an active lifestyle. Nick feels he is a special part of a close-knit group of campers and counselors who 'pretty much rule' the UNE campus.
