Espace Croissance is a non-profit in the Acadian peninsula offering activities for families in the Caraquet/Shippagan region. Most of their activities are around healthy eating and healthy activities for kids and families. Karibou is a program they offer for kids 0-5 around physical literacy. Acadian Historical Village in Caraquet offers traditional cooking sessions and in the off-season, they stay open to walkers so you can walk in the winter in the village. They always offer events during March Break.
The Club plein air de Caraquet has been around for 30 years! They promote outdoor recreational activities such as cross country skiing, snow shoeing, skating, mountain bike/fat bike, and cross country running. All of these programs have rentable equipment and educational programs are also offered, including the Jackrabbit program for cross country skiing and the Sprockids program for mountain biking. They are also hosting their 4th annual Provincial Mascot Championship this year. PLEASE go look at pictures in the show notes. Club plein air de Caraquet has created some partnerships with the local schools which are very close by, and the high school does many “move or rust” days”/”grouille ou rouille” throughout the year.
A healthy community is one that helps prevent chronic diseases for the people living in that community. The NB Health Council compiles factors within our communities that enhance our health, and one example is that a community is healthy if they can create spaces or environments where healthy lifestyles are the easiest choices. An example of this would be infrastructure for walking with sidewalks that are plowed and indoor options for walking as well.
Feed Our Sport is from a healthy environments committee in the Acadian Peninsula focusing on awareness of having healthy choices where sports are played. They have 4 videos featuring kids from the Acadian Peninsula saying that healthy food is part of the kids’ equipment.
