This summer the University of Montana kicked of their new summer youth camp program. It's an eight week long camp that focuses on a different sport each week, making kids like William very happy.
"My favorite thing was football and golf, because if it weren't for oval shaped leather with stitches in it there would be no football," said William.
The camps counselors say they're having just as much fun as William and the rest of the kids.
"He comes up to me everyday and says, Devan are you so excited that I'm here? and it's been a great experience having him here and having the kids come back day after day," said Counselor Devan Annan.
In the mornings kids will learn the sport of that particular week. They then head to the Grizzly Pool for swim lessons, or go on scavenger hunts or hike the M.
"We're keeping them moving and active all day long and there will be a few kids that when it's time to get picked up at three they will be sleeping when their parents come get them," said Camp Coordinator Zach Sherbo.
With child obesity on the rise and many physical education classes getting cut, Sherbo says youth camps are as needed as ever.
"It is important and you hear it over and over nowadays about how inactive kids are becoming, it's very important to keep the kids out here active and we are doing plenty of that," said Sherbo.
So far the kids have learned golf, soccer, and football. They are currently focused on baseball and the counselors say they enjoy watching the kids pick up new sports.
"I think it's pretty cool to see them develop throughout the week and to see them come in on Monday morning and compare that to when they leave Friday afternoon. I think there's a pretty huge jump developmentally for them," said counselor Tyler Bowen.
Camp Coordinators say the first year of the camps has been a success and they look forward to building upon that for the future.
