Health and fitness camps


Weight loss camps (or health and fitness camps) address parents' concerns about young people's lack of healthy activity which can result in poor physical fitness and issues with weight. These camps focus not only on healthy activity but also educate children about nutrition and eating habits. Sometimes called fitness camps, these encourage your child to take an active interest in their own fitness and health, and challenge home or her to drop bad habits. Read more

    Camps teach health & fitness beyond dieting

    The advantage to these is the focus, and the fact that children will find themselves with a group of their peers who may also have similar issues with weight loss or fitness. These camps remove all of the stigma of being overweight. It can be profoundly helpful and worthwhile for any child to learn about health and fitness, in order to learn good lifelong habits going far beyond mere weight loss. Getting young men and women aged 12 to 25 healthy and vibrant at a camp is a great way to fuel a lifetime of fitness.

    Obesity is a major concern for many people today due to changing food habits and lifestyles. A weight loss camp program will help overweight and obese people of all ages lose weight. Weight loss camps enable children to lose weight in an inspiring and fun atmosphere. Weight loss camps are also known as weight loss retreats and fitness boot camps.

    Of course, any summer camp offers a lot of activities to encourage all children to increase fitness. There is little doubt that all that fresh air and activity is healthy for every child who partakes in summer camp. Any summer camp will get your child outdoors and active and renew their attention on health and fitness and kids almost invariably lose weight at summer camp. But on the other hand, not all will be perfectly suited to a boy or girl with an acute weight problem.

    Campers at weight loss camps praise them for the way they teach "how to eat right and exercise daily" and help them to gain confidence. Generally, kids know that they have a problem and it is important to address weight issues in a healthy, constructive way. Sending a child to a "weight loss camp" can introduce them to camp life and healthy habits, while having a blast at the same time.

    In our 2010 issue of Our Kids Go to camp we once again profiled the many healthy benefits of weight loss and fitness camps, including the way they educate kids and immerse them in healthy habit formation. This includes camps offering summer, winter, holiday, and March break sessions.
