BOKS is a FREE physical activity program that improves our children physically, mentally and socially by strengthening their minds and bodies through movement

The greatest part of the BOKS program is witnessing change of behavior from children and observing the formation of new friendships. Seeing kids come out of their shell and allowing exercise to create a sense of confidence is absolutely amazing!
