Since when where sports camps a bad thing? In a recent speech at a United We Serve event at Fort McNair in Washington DC, President Obama said the following:
On Monday, we launched “United We Serve,” our summer service initiative. It’s going to run all the way through our National Day of Service on September 11th. We want to ask every American to take some time out this summer to do something for others.
Parents, take your kids — they’re going to have fun, they’re going to be in sports camps, they’re going to be watching TV and playing video games. Once a week, take them down — whether it’s to a soup kitchen or to volunteer on a community project — teach them what it means to be a real citizen. You’ll find that actually the kids love it, and it’s going to make a lasting impression on them.
Why single out sports camps? Sports camps never hurt anybody.
