The Annapolis County Active Kids, Healthy Kids (AKHK) Fund recently awarded a total of $4,950.00 in funding to a variety of programs that will encourage and support physical activity for youth throughout Annapolis County.

The programs receiving funding are:

  • Active Play at Storytime: The Annapolis Valley Regional Library will purchase equipment for active play during storytime and craft programs for young children at the Annapolis County library branches.
  • Baseball in Middleton: Middleton Minor Baseball Association’s goal is to grow baseball in our community by offering both recreational and competitive opportunities for youth, ages 4 – 15. The AKHK funding will help to reduce registration fees for participants.
  • Bridgetown Area Summer Active Living Day Camp: The free day camp program offers a wide range of fun activities for young children, ages 6 – 11. The program runs four mornings per week, using facilities in Bridgetown. The AKHK funding will assist with the staffing costs of the program.
