Session - 3
Sunday, June 9 through Saturday, August 3, 2013
Total immersion into a new routine for a greater length of time increases the chance for long term success. Campers will also lose the most weight in this camp and have time to form healthy habits for life.
In the 4 week program we teach kids a true knowledge base of HOW to live a healthy life and in the 8 week program they will SHOW others how to do it. In order to teach someone -- you must know the routine well yourself. This prepares them to teach their family when they arrive home. In the 8 week program we expand on leadership training, menu planning and cooking classes. These campers will take home healthier recipes that are kid/family friendly.
Campers will go on the Panther Prowl over the camp changeover weekend. Each day there is a special excursion. This prevents them from becoming sad that friends are leaving and also keeps them from becoming nervous that new kids are coming. We keep them busy and the transition is easier. There are no parent visits on this weekend!
If your child already has severe complications due to obesity, the 8 week program will help them reclaim their life. Many children go home to surprise their doctors with a clean bill of health! This is the camp that heals both body and mind -- if your child suffers from low self-esteem and self-confidence then this is the camp for them! A family willing to make lifestyle changes in their home will allow these children to go on to live normal lives!
