Weight Loss Camp for Children


Why Weight Loss Camp is a Great Solution for Overweight Teens
by Richard Rossbauer

  For many adolescents, a weight loss
is probably the best way for overweight teens to lose weight and fight off obesity.

  Teenage Obesity research is showing the youth of today that eating right is better than eating fast. The tie in between child obesity and fast food has prompted many schools to change the kind of foods they offer in their cafeterias..

  Instead of struggling with cafeteria temptations, schoolyard taunts or
parental pressures, teens can learn
good habits at camp, develop lifelong programs and begin a healthy lifestyle -
not just for a summer.

Shedding Pounds

  Free from temptations attacking their will power and encouraged to engage in physical activities, most teens participating will drop the pounds and keep them off.

  Dropping pounds is not only great for critical health considerations, but also for self-esteem and mental well-being. Additionally, it's an encouraging start to developing lifelong healthy habits.

Speaking of Developing Healthy Habits

  At a good quality camp, the focus won't just be on your teen losing 15 pounds this summer.

  Instead, they'll teach an adolescent healthy habits they can take home and practice throughout the school year and beyond...
...habits as simple as packing a healthy, well-balanced lunch or walking home from school instead of riding in a school bus or waiting to be picked up by a parent.

   These are some of the good healthy habits that lead to losing weight and toning their developing bodies.

Exercise Programs

   In addition to learning healthy eating and lifestyle habits, teens also engage in regulated exercise programs. Though most are designed to be fun - like games - they also learn a wide range of exercises and skills they can take home and implement as part of an ongoing lifestyle.

   And because many overweight teens are hesitant to join in physical activities at school or in gym class, the supportive environment of the camp is often the best starting point to receive reinforcement for healthy choices.

Increased Self-Esteem

   One of the most difficult consequences of adolescent obesity is low self-esteem. Whether it's dealing with teasing and taunting in the school environment or wrestling with a poor body image, teens are particularly prone at their young ages to experiencing these problems.

   And in extreme cases, a teenager's low self esteem can lead to some very serious depression and even tragic consequences.

   In contrast, most teens thrive in a weight loss camp environment - learning not just how to lose pounds and keep them off, but also how to accept their changing bodies. The best part? They can do so with a group of others who are supportive and enjoy the same healthy benefits.

Making Friends

   Some of the greatest advantages of a weight loss camp for teens are the friendships developed in an environment free from social pressures. Because the adolescents share common issues with their bodies and weight loss goals, the bonds are both deep and supportive - and tend to last well beyond the duration of the camp experience.
