KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS & CONFIDENCE
Campers develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to make smart decisions that help them reach and stay at their healthiest, happiest weight long after camp is over.
INDIVIDUALIZED GAME PLANS
Supportive, clinically-experienced behavioral coaches work one-on-one and with small groups of campers to teach life skills and daily habits and address individual success barriers.
