The camp was designed to promote an active and healthy lifestyle among older adults in the capital city community. Throughout the week, participants enjoyed a variety of activities including low-impact exercises, recreational activities, field trips and walks.


Among the low-impact exercises offered were yoga, aqua aerobics and rhythmic aerobics classes, and there was also a health services and municipal services fair.


In addition, campers enjoyed art, music and dance sessions that encourage socialization and creativity. They also visited local places of interest, such as the Museum of San Juan, the Museum of Puerto Rico and the Botanical Garden of Caguas, promoting knowledge and enjoyment of the natural and cultural environment.


“Offering this summer camp for our seniors is of the utmost importance and value,” Romero Lugo said. “It’s critical that we continue to create opportunities that allow them to stay active and connected to the community. This camp is just one of the many initiatives we are carrying out to improve the quality of life of our senior citizens.”
