Progress, even technological progress can mean change and change is good. For the most part, it means society is moving forward. We can often see what was changed, for example; on one hand we have witnessed a decline in the number of kids in playgrounds, on bicycles, play tag or just running around. On the other hand as of late, we see people that want the newest phones, gadgets and games. Could there be a correlation between our technological progress and the apparent increase in the number of overweight kids? If so, it is important to curb this phenomenon early. If your children have little interest in physical activity and are gaining more weight then normal, Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy, camp for overweight kids will be able to help.
At Rites of Passage, we can be considered a motivator of change. Your kids will learn what it is like to have fun outdoors while learning some very valuable lessons regarding both physical and mental health and wellness.
Just telling kids they shouldn’t engage in certain behaviors doesn’t always work well.
Teaching them the reasons why certain behaviors are unhealthy or unacceptable works better. Showing them they have the strength and ability within themselves to make a change in behavior works great.
At Rites of Passage NW our camp for overweight kids will thoroughly engage your child.
- They will become aware of who they are and who they want to be.
- They will learn new skills and discover new abilities and have the confidence in themselves to use them to overcome may of life’s challenges that lay before them.
- They will learn the tremendous importance of health and nutrition and they will have no doubt lost weight during their time with us and possibly not even noticed.
