Thank You Reception

A farewell reception for Robert P. McCaffery will be held at the New England Center, Windsor-Charles Room on Monday, June 18, from 3 to 5 p.m.

Post-partum Volunteers Sought For Exercise Study

The exercise science department is looking for women who have recently given birth to participate in a study that looks at postpartum exercise prescription. The study will explore the acute effects of circuit weight training and subsequent acceptance of breast milk by infants.

The study will be conducted through July 27 at the UNH Exercise Science Laboratory located in the Field House. It consists of five sessions: a screening, a 1RM test of 11 nautilus machines, and three sessions of data collection. This is ground breaking research, as there is very little data on the short-term effects of this type of postpartum exercise.

Candidates should be 2-4 months postpartum. Contact Timothy Quinn, associate professor in the kinesiology department, at 2-1830 or tjq@unh.edu or Jay Hydren at (508) 954 9153 or jrm7@unh.edu.

Think Summer -Call For 4-H Camp Sign-ups

It’s not too early to start thinking about what summer camp your children want to attend.

With two locations, one in Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown and the other in the White Mountain National Forest, children can choose from a variety of programs, ranging from three nights to three weeks.

Bear Hill Camp in Bear Brook State Park offers mini camp, traditional overnight, leaders-in training and mentor, as well as the teen adventure series. Teen adventurers enjoy all the traditional camp favorites, but explore opportunities related to specific areas of interest.

Those interested in the teen series may choose between The Healthy Athlete (sports conditioning and a Red Sox game,) Island Adventure I (natural history of the Isles of Shoals, including a two-night stay on the island,) Island Adventure II (marine biology and oceanography, including a two-night stay on the Isles of Shoals,) Baaaa Hill (learn to pack and trek with a goat, visit the Stratham Fair,) Take to the Skies (explore aviation and space, visit Pease Air National Guard and try the flight simulator,) and NH Expedition (see what New Hampshire has to offer, including a canopy zip line adventure at Alpine Adventures in Lincoln.)

Barry Conservation Camp, located in the White Mountain National Forest, is run in conjunction with the NH Fish & Game Department. Attend the Let’s Go Fishing program, Hunter Safety & Certification, Walk on the Wild Side or Advanced Shooting Sports weeks.
