Submission + - Kid Health Experts Attack Video Game Summer Camp (www.cbc.ca)

Jack Action writes: The University of British Columbia runs a summer camp where kids get to play computer games for three hours a day. The camp organizers say it is "a good social opportunity for some kids who didn't fit into other programs."

However, health professionals declare they are "troubled" by the camp. A professor in UBC's department medicine says kids should be outside, and engaged in "unstructured play"; while the CEO of a NGO that monitors kids' health chimes in that they already spend too much time in front of screens and not exercising.

So what is it? Do the health experts have a point, or are they just criticizing something that they don't understand, or perhaps is not to their taste?
