The Department of Kinesiology and Community Health at University of Illinois is happy to offer The Illinois Physical Activity and Life Skills (iPALS) Wellness Program in collaboration with Champaign Unit 4 Schools.

iPALS is a free summer learning and enrichment program for children attending elementary schools (i.e. rising first through fifth-graders) in Champaign Unit 4. The Program specifically targets youth who are enrolled in the free and reduced school lunch program.

During each day of the Program, participants will rotate through various stations guided by an innovative conceptual framework highlighting: (a) physical activity, (b) academic enrichment, (c) nutrition education, (d) lifestyle enrichment, and (e) social and emotional learning.
