Archery, kickboxing and canoeing are just a few of the activities many Burgess Elementary future fifth graders will be able to enjoy this week.

Its all apart of Midwestern State University's burgess B.E.A.T.

The camp is put on by the Kinesiology department at MSU and it aims to teach kids how to stay healthy with outside activities and fun exercises.

Teachers at Burgess Elementary choose a select group of students who will be in the fifth grade in the fall to participate.

Organizers say its not only good for the kids it's also great for the student instructors, since this is the field they want to work in.

"Its good to start kids early that way they like being active, all the kids today, a couple of them came up to me and said you know I didn't really like working out or exercising and doing things outside until

I came to this camp," said camp Director, Taylor Parker.
This is the 2nd year for the annual event and its funded by the West Foundation Education Research Grant.
