Join children and families from all over Lebanon County this summer in the 2nd annual Get Outdoors (GO) and Be Active! program. Get outdoors and discover the wonder of nature as you hunt for 15 activity posts hidden in parks and along trails in Lebanon County. Children follow clues available in their free GO and Be Active! blueprint to locate each posts. They then make a rubbing of the unique etching plate found at each post as a record of their “find.” The more activity posts you find, the better your chances are to win an exciting grand prize.
The GO and Be Active! program is a collaborative initiative of WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospital and the Lebanon County Library System. For additional information, please contact Melanie Wells, Community Wellness Coordinator, WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospital at 717.270.7764.
