(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Missouri Western kicked off its annual sports academy for kids Monday. The week long camp offers a range of activities for kids to do from dancing to fishing. The sports camp is open to students ages eight to twelve.

The university says it's a way to keep kids active during the summer and expose them to games they wouldn't usually get to experience and explore.

"Hopefully, they'll fall in love with something that they got to do here and want to keep doing it the rest of their lives," said Dr. Britton Johnson, director of children's lifetime sports academy at the university.

The camp is $80.00 dollars per child. Discounts are available for families with more than one child.
