As temperatures rise and students are finishing out the school year, some kids will want to turn into couch potatoes this summer vacation.

As NewsOn6.com's Nicole Wiseman reports, experts say it's common for kids to get bored during the summer months, and maybe even get a bit lazy.

But, you don't have to go far or even spend a lot of money to keep your children healthy and active.

There are dozens of camps your kids can get involved in and there's something out there for everyone.

Perhaps you love acting, singing, or dancing. You can brush up on your skills at Theatre Arts, Incorporated. If you enjoy science, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium has several camps to choose from, including the chance to learn about the solar system.

If you prefer sports, The University of Oklahoma is offering soccer programs. Plus, the YMCA is putting on several camps that include hiking, canoeing, swimming, and archery.

No matter what kind of activity you pursue, experts say anything that gets your kids active and away from the couch is beneficial to their health. The American Heart Association says kids should not have more than one to two hours of TV, computer, and video games combined in a day. Most kids get four to six hours.
