OnPoint on WACH Fox: Helping kids avoid the 'summer slide'

COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - On this week's edition of OnPoint on WACH Fox we look at the importance of keeping kids active during the summer months.

The school year is winding down which means it's time to make summer plans for the kids. While they're away from school, experts say it's critical to keep young people involved in some type of learning environment to avoid what's known as the "summer slide."

Sitting at home playing video games or being glued to the television just won't cut it. Not only is it unhealthy, as the saying goes "an idle mind is the devil's workshop."

Healthy, physically active kids are also more likely to be academically motivated, alert, and successful.

On this week's show, we look at some of the programs in the Midlands that can help keep your kids going this summer.
