Objective: To observe the health and lifestyle of children who have been subjected to educational health camps. Bibliographic Review: During childhood and adolescence, in addition to the occurrence of physiological changes, the individual undergoes important psychosocial changes, which contributes to the characteristic vulnerability of this population group. The lifestyle consists of the practices that each person does to maintain physical and mental activity. Health education interventions, based on the practice of physical activities and healthy eating, have the potential to promote meaningful contextualized learning. When these interventions are carried out in health education camps, through the use of games, games, and educational dynamics in language appropriate for children, conducted by a multidisciplinary team, they can become useful strategies both in the prevention of installation and in the treatment of chronic diseases non-transmissible in pediatrics. Exploring the playfulness present in games used in health education is a relevant resource in clinical actions, especially those involving daily self-care related to health. Physical and health promotion activities carried out in health education camps promote both anthropometric and behavioral benefits and contribute to improving the health of children and adolescents. Final considerations: Educational health interventions through camps are effective in promoting bodily, behavioral, and lifestyle changes that contribute to improving the health of children and adolescents.
