Weight loss summer camps

Find summer camps that specialize in weight loss listed below


Weight loss camps encourage your son or daughter to get active and work toward managing his or her weight. If your child is overweight, weight loss camps are equipped to deal with this issue proactively and with sensitivity. Camps that specialize in weight loss are listed below.

You can also use our site to find many different summer camps offering a variety of outdoor activities that will get your child active and outside. By nature, any summer camp should help your child lose weight, although not all will be well suited for your child if he or she has an acute weight problem. The advantage of a weight loss camp is that they will take a more holistic, focused approach to weight loss that will include education about nutrition, fitness programs and weight monitoring. And of course, your son or daughter will be in a peer group of children facing similar issues. Out of consideration for some kids' insecurities, there are boys' only summer camps and girls' only summer camps in this category. The intensity of many of our programs might even make them fitness boot camps for kids.

Weight loss camp can teach children the essentials of fitness, weight management and healthy eating habits in an environment that is conducive to learning and will not make them feel judged. In an environment of peers facing similar problems with weight, your child will not feel judged (or worse). Your child should more likely feel open to sharing with others and should be able to challenge peers and deal with helpful challenges from his or her new friends.

Weight loss summer camps

Many children have benefited from the holistic approach taken to fitness and weight loss espoused by a summer camp focusing on those exact issues. If you engage your child with one of these camps for only one summer even, the benefits may last a lifetime. Alternately, we recommend that you encourage your child to find pleasure in outdoor activities that he or she will find at any summer camp. Follow from your child's interests and encourage them to try things like a horseback riding camp, for example,  or a kids' golf camp. Low-impact activities like these are a great place to start.   

Use our summer camp search to find a camp to your liking.
