CATCH Kids Club (CKC) is a physical activity and nutrition education program designed for elementary and middle school aged children (grades K – 8) in an after-school or summer setting. CKC is composed of nutrition education (including snack activities) and physical activity. The CKC program offers an easy-to-use format that both children and staff enjoy and is easy to implement.

YMCAs, Boys and Girls Clubs, and parks and recreation organizations around the country have discovered that CATCH Kids Club is both cost-effective and proven to change behavioral outcomes. Many sites have made CKC the centerpiece of their programming and become an important voice in delivering a coordinated message to children about the importance of physical activity and nutrition. Open time after school and during the summer provides an excellent opportunity to fill a child care need with fun, hands-on nutrition activities as well as enjoyable structured physical activity.
CATCH Kids Club meets the National Afterschool Association (NAA) Standards for Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA), covering best practices for out-of-school time (OST) for youth ages 5-14.
