La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The end of summer is coming and schedules for many children are slowing down a bit. But, for ten years now, the UW La Crosse Youth Camp has provided active and healthy programs. The camp happens in the summer and winter. It provides children from 5 to 12 years old the chance to work with physical education majors on things like sportsmanship, teamwork, nutrition, and fitness. They also learn about fire safety and the La Crosse County K-9 unit speaks to the children about general safety. The children benefit, but so do others.
Director of the camp, Brian Udermann said, "One of the things that I think is really neat about this camp, our staff primarily is UWL physical education majors. So they get a chance to show the things that they've learned in their classes and use some of the materials that their learning to go out and actually do for their careers."
The camp runs Monday through Wednesday from 9 am to 4 PM at the Eagle Rec Center. It's 25 dollars a day and you can still register at the door.
