Having fun is an integral part of losing weight. We don't believe in fad diets, deprivation, or clinical treatments in a school atmosphere. Rather, we teach you how to live a healthier life by making smarter choices, being conscious of portion sizes, and engaging in physical activities while enjoying our beautiful, private camp setting. Our program is for boys and girls, ages 7-19. Read success stories...
Our sports programs focus on camper participation, not winning and losing. Campers receive athletic instruction from a first-rate staff, where positive reinforcement is continually at work to encourage kids, whatever their fitness or skill level. Building self-esteem is key. The environment is always non-threatening and stress-free. Our counselor-to-camper ratio never exceeds 1-4.
Have fun water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking. We have paddle boats, row boats, banana boats, monster tubing, fishing and more! We have two swimming pools, one for the boys, one for the girls, surrounded by outstanding scenery, with so many ways to have fun and get fit: instructional swim, free swim, knee boarding, water aerobics, laps. Marco Polo, you name it...
Our cabins are comfortable, each with 2 counselors and only 6-8 campers. Shower facilities are new, and a maid service cleans the bathrooms every other day. Beds have thick mattresses and we never ever use double deckers. Your child will enjoy 3 balanced meals and 2 snacks daily. An example of lunch may include favorites such as pita pizza, unlimited salad bar, milk, fruit, and tasty soup.
Be careful when you visit other weight loss camp websites. When you visit other websites, consider these important questions:
Are the photos misleading? Ask about the images you see. Many times the images you see on other weight loss camp websites do not depict the facility, but rather off-campus trips. All of the photos you see on our website are at our actual 350 private acre summer camp, nestled in our own private lakefront, where children realize their goals and enjoy the best activities program... bar none. We foster healthy lifestyle changes through fun in the most incredible summer camp setting you can imagine!
What about friendships? With about 30 kids in a given age group, your child will form healthy, age-appropriate friendships. With roughly a 4 to 1 counselor to camper ratio, each child gets the individualized attention they need. We have separate facilities for boys and girls, and are the ONLY weight loss camp with onsite lakefront water sports and two swimming pools, one for the boys, one for the girls.
Is it ACA acredited? ACA Accreditation assures parents that the camp has had a regular, independent safety audit that goes beyond regulations in most states. (read more)
