Katy Trail Challenge

(formerly Extreme Health Challenge)

Katy Trail Challenge imageThe Katy Trail Challenge is a fitness activity for youth that includes a physical activity component and a fruit and vegetable component. The challenge also incorporates lessons that highlight locations along Missouri’s Katy Trail State Park. This toolkit was designed for use in elementary schools, but can be used by other youth groups such as Scouts, 4-H, etc. This toolkit gives general instructions, but you may modify to meet the needs of your group.
