Practice Summer Heat Safety

Summer 2018
Summer heat can be dangerous - even deadly - if you don't take the proper precautions. Everyone should follow these basic heat safety tips in order to avoid the dangers of heat exposure. Keep these suggestions in mind:
-The hottest hours of the day are typically from mid morning to mid afternoon. Dress lightly. -Drink plenty of water. -Avoid drinking alcohol and beverages that are carbonated or contain caffeine when temperatures are high, as they can lead to dehydration. -Keep blinds and curtains closed from morning until the late afternoon to block extra direct heat from sunlight. -Move your exercise routine to early morning or later in the evening. -Never leave a person or a pet in the car in hot conditions while you run to do a quick errand.

Eat Healthy, Eat Local, Eat Fresh

Summer 2018
Summer is a great time is eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Some great local farms near us include:
-Foppema's Farm, Whitinsville -Silvermine Farm, Sutton -Sunburst Blueberry Farm, Uxbridge -Vandervalk Farm & Winery, Mendon -Wojicks Farm, Blackstone -Stowe Farm, Millbury -Douglas Orchard & Farm, Douglas -Whittier Farms, Sutton
The Center for Disease Control suggests you eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day. What better time to do that than in the summer! July is “National Blueberry Month”. Check out www.blueberrycouncil.org for more information on the health benefits of adding the little blueberry to your diet, plus some great recipes!

NEW! Camp Whitin Director

Join us in welcoming Michelle to our WCC family!
After fourteen years with Northbridge Public Schools, we are excited to welcome Michelle as the New Camp Whitin Director! Michelle has been with Camp Whitin for seven years as a camp coordinator.
Michelle's ability to implement curriculum while keeping the campers interested is exceptional which is why she has also been appointed the school age administrator for the Blackstone Valley Children's Place. This Summer, Michelle will be overseeing camp operations and running a few camps of her own, like Lights, Camera, Action and Mini DaVinci. She will also be popping in as a guest professor at Return to Hogwarts, join in on the judging at the WCC Olympics, and trying her hand at Match Point Tennis.
Whether it's trying something new, or enjoying some old favorites, Michelle is excited to spend the Summer with our campers and counselors to make this Summer, the Best Summer Ever!
