What does your child need most?
Choose Empowered Wellness for teens and young adults when:
They're not at their best weight -- the weight where they're happiest and healthiest.
Their behaviors related to food and weight are dysfunctional -- for example, binge-eating (bingeing), food addiction, and emotional eating.
Their weight is causing health issues like Type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
Overweight or obesity is causing depression, unhappiness, anxiety, social withdrawal, or exposing them to criticism and bullying.
Founded by Eliza Kingsford, Wellspring's clinical director, our camp is specifically structured for overweight or obese children, teens and young adults aged 13-24 who have already tried ideas like "eat less, move more," no seconds, snacks or sweets, less screentime, exercise programs, bargaining, reminding, pleading, rewards, and short-term weight loss programs including other camps.
That's why our shortest camp is four weeks.
Science and experience tells us that if the "easy" ideas didn't stick, a camp that lasts only 1-2 weeks isn't going to help either.
