What would you include in a wellness campus for youth?

“A lot of little kids like video games, so I know they’d go there if there were video games, or air hockey and stuff like that. It’d keep ’em off the streets.”
“I would like to see some old-school games that kept kids active back in the day, like tetherball and basketball courts and jungle gyms — those things I was on all the time. They kept me active.”
“I think it should have something besides just fitness stuff, something that would make them want to hang out there. I don’t know if that means a pool area, or darts, or something that’s kind of fun without being running. Something a little more low key.”
“Reading-intensive courses, math-intensive courses, something to do with the arts and definitely physical activities, since physical education’s being pulled out of school curriculums.”
