Summer Plans Are Changing And That's Okay

With the coronavirus putting a damper on summer plans, people are pivoting to make the best out of the situation. Distant travel is taking a backseat to more local adventures, and many summer camps are cancelled in favor of more time at home. We understand, of course, that prioritizing health is the most important thing, but that leaves many of us feeling bummed out. 

Remember when you were a kid and summer days seemed to last forever? You spent your days riding bikes, running through sprinklers, climbing trees, and eating popsicles. Let's do that again! Healthy UNH has a prescription for an amazing summer (and it's not more cowbell).

It's the Ultimate Guide to an Old School Summer! This guide will show you that summer is a state of mind. It doesn't need big plans, just an adventurous spirit and a sense of wonder...
