CAMP Challenge: Brain Games

Healthy brain development is the first defense in protecting our children from the dangers of substance use, while strengthening their ability for healthy decision-making.

Family game nights provide a fun way to strengthen brain development and foster important skills such as problem solving, planning ahead, predicting outcomes, learning from experience, and critical thinking. Getting exercise everyday is also essential for healthy brain development.
