As resilient as kids may seem, they don’t always bounce back from the number of afflictions many adults and even parents give them credit for. Quite often, they need help; a point in the right direction, love and support even a gentle to keep them moving forward. For those parents that believe their kids will grow out of or bounce back from the poor eating habits they have adopted, may want to reconsider that particular strategy. Kids and some parents may not fully understand the negative health implications associated with being overweight. At Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy, our camp for overweight kids in Seattle can help your child change their poor eating behaviors and set them and your whole family on the road to a healthier lifestyle.
At Rites of Passage, we aren’t about counting calories, we are about changing behaviors by developing new ones. We’re about teaching our students there are exciting and fun alternative activities that can be shared with family and friends. Hiking, camping and wilderness adventures to, offering a myriad of obstacles that will put to practice new skills learned and hidden abilities to use. It’s about being tired at the end of a great day, getting a good night’s rest while looking forward to the challenges of the next day. It’s about not only learning to eat healthier foods but how to select and prepare natural and delicious holistic meals and snacks.
Rites of Passage NW is also about being able to talk freely with counselors, therapists and peers about issues that may have contributed to the poor choices made in past and being empowered to take responsibility for the choices made in future.
