HOUSTON Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital are recruiting campers for the seventh year of their fun-based, weight management summer camp program, Kamp K’aana.
The camp is a comprehensive and fun weight management program for children ages 10 to 14. The two-week, sleep away camp includes activities such as swimming, horseback riding, pedal carts, soccer, basketball, lake fun, paint ball, ropes courses, a rock wall and zip lining.
In addition, for one hour a day, children receive a lesson taught by health educators using a curriculum designed by a multi-disciplinary team of experts on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle. A healthy meal plan including a new fruit or vegetable is served each day.
Parents take part in education sessions on the first and last days of camp. Additionally, families attend two follow-up reunions 3 and 6 months after camp to reconnect and reiterate lessons learned.

A look at the falling trends by grade levelSource: The Nations Report Card
We have two major problems facing twenty-first century America: declining rates of proficiency in civics and a class of young Americans who couldn’t care less. Our fourth graders are performing stronger than ever however this success fades in grades eight and twelve. In fact it seems that knowledge about civics degenerates as an American grows older. If this was Saudi Arabia or Communist China these findings would frighten me little, but because our system depends on an informed citizenry that understands its way around our government, the graph to your right undermines my confidence in the future. Educators, especially those that are in Social Studies have the responsibility and the up-hill battle to alter how students view civics and turn around these downward trends.Century
