Jill Baxter, Director Active Challenge
Is this a Fat Camp?
This is a question that I get asked all of the time. and to be honest about Active Challenge...I am more proud of what our campers gain at camp than what they lose. All they lose are pounds and inches. What they gain is a connection to their physical bodies as a vehicle to move them in the direction of their dreams.
You simply cannot be healthy mentally and emotionally without being good to you body and without moving. People often think of camp as a luxury. Camp is playtime and it is not necessarily an easy thing to fit into the family budget.
We need to change our focus as to what is luxury and what is essential. Play is essential!!! Physical health, learning and practicing interpersonal skills, learning to care for your body and mind are the gifts and tools to set young people up for success in all aspects of life.
All research points to the need to do something consistently for a minimum of 21 days to establish a habit. If you want to establish a habit, what better way than to do it with the support of others just like you?
People who do not believe in residential programs have never done it themselves. They have never felt that visceral feeling of fueling their body for energy and for no other reason for 28 days straight. They have never known the feeling of getting up in the morning and having nothing to beat yourself up about because you went to bed proud the night before for 28 days straight.
Find out what we do at Active Challenge. Ask questions.
Decide what is right for you and if you can make the commitment.
Then take the leap.
This program can indeed be the first step toward one remarkable journey.
As the only residential health and fitness program in Canada, we are on a mission to see young women become the best versions of themselves possible.
See you at camp.
