LiveWell Kershaw is working with the Kiwanis Club to host StoryWalk®, a three-day event and Scott and Kendall Parks in Camden. The event combines walking in the parks with children’s literature,

“Our goal is to promote healthy living in the community and schools within Kershaw County,” LiveWell Wellness Project Assistant Bree Anderson said in an email. “We believe this event will help us get the community up and moving.”

A StoryWalk, Anderson said, is essentially a book that is spread along a trail -- along the walk are pages of the stories, written out by children.

“Therefore, the event is promoting movement and children’s literature,” she said.

StoryWalk will take place at Scott and Kendall Parks from Friday, July 19 at 2 p.m. through Sunday, July 21 at 2 p.m. The walks will “transport” participants into the worlds of “If You Give a Pig a Pancake,” “What Are Friends For?” and “Truckfull of Ducks.”

“Explore the terrain of Scott and Kendall parks while reading these exciting stories,” Kiwanis Club organizers said. “This activity will not only allow you to read some of your favorites, but also get some steps in at the same time.”

The Kiwanis Club of Kershaw County’s mission is to empower the community to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children.
