Now is the
time to begin planning to attend athletic and academic camps at The University
of Texas at Arlington this summer. For the first time in 2012, the University has
Adventures 101 to its summer camp lineup. The new day camp for ages 6-12 will
combine interactive instruction with high-energy fitness activities to enhance
campers’ knowledge of health, wellness and nutrition.

activities,” said Christopher Ray, director of UT Arlington’s Center of Healthy
Living and Longevity and an assistant professor of kinesiology. “It is
essential that kids are exposed to diverse activities in order to identify the
type of exercise they most enjoy, as enjoyment plays a critical role in one's
ability to maintain a fitness regime across the lifespan.”
