It has been suggested obesity can be a contributing factor to a number of health concerns such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. It has also been suggested that overweight children could possible carry that weight into adulthood quite possibly putting them at risk for these same health issues. Although doctors, nutritionists, counselors and other healthcare professionals may use a variety of methods to measure obesity, many kids suffering from this condition may be gauging it from another perspective. Self-esteem and self-image can be powerful built in tools to an individual.
A supportive family willing to encourage accommodate and even have the willingness to make changes themselves can be the best incentive ever. An active weight loss camp for kids is all about making healthy choices; eating properly, getting plenty of rest and enjoying any number of physical activities.

It will be a camp these youth will be able to share with family and friends for a lifetime.
