Health and Wellness play a critical role in youth development and at Squash Haven. All Squash Haven team members participate in approximately five hours of health and wellness programming throughout the course of each program year. Health and wellness programming is taught both by our staff and by local experts who partner with us.
Topics covered in recent sessions include:
Our Health and Wellness program is further strengthened by frequent visits to our community garden plot on Winchester Avenue, where we grow seasonal veggies that team members harvest. In addition, all students must take the stairs in lieu of the elevator, only drink water at Squash Haven practices, and are provided with a healthy snack every day that includes fresh fruit.
