Adventure to Health

The Michelle and Jennifer Tobias Adventure to Health is a colorful, interactive attraction where students, scouts, and campers can learn about the human body. Visitors start off at the “Scan Me” station where they can learn about weight, height, and body mass index. From there, they can learn about nutrition at the Healthy Highway Drive-Thru; go on a journey to supply nutrition to various organs; communicate with one another using touch, sound, and sight; play “drag and drop” matching games about safety, and more. The 18 stations at Adventure to Health can educate them about food choices, germs and how they spread, dental health, exercise and fitness, and more.
