UVA to help fat camp

In partnership with Camp Holiday Trails and Kohl's department stores, UVA is lending its expertise to an extended weekend camp for families with an obese child. According to a UVA release, the whole family is invited to learn healthy eating and exercise habits for nearly four days in September. Cost: $25. Value: priceless. Well, actually UVA says it's $500 worth of food, lodging, and instruction subsidized by the actual operator of the program, the Charlottesville-Albemarle Childhood Obesity Task Force.

I would think that the writers for "The Hook" were intelligent enough to come up with alternative wording to "fat camp". Remember being a kid and being called fat? I do. I'm not really big on being "pc" but I do think better wording could have been used.
