It isn't only adults that give thought to their New Year's resolutions each year. Many people, regardless of age, may want to change something of themselves at one time or another. Although not always recognized or noticed, kids around the world also wish to change something of themselves; a behavioral or emotional change or maybe both. In the midst of the informative society which we live, children are becoming more aware of the importance of personal health and the dangers of being overweight. To help these kids achieve their goals of making a change to a healthier lifestyle is a renowned obesity health and wellness camp for kids in North America.
Those who take on a diet challenge often hear the term 'intake moderation'. In diet speak; this may be loosely defined as not over eating foods high in fat or calories. In a world of constant technological advancement, this definition can take on a much broader meaning. A lack of physical activity, poor eating habits and irregular sleep patterns can no doubt have negative consequences. A camp that reintroduces our kids to the enjoyment and benefits of the outdoors will not only help these youth but their families as well. With the absence of electronic devices, students will be able to focus on making the desired changes with minimal distractions.
Combining the challenges and adventures of the wilderness with a rites of passage model of therapy and a complete holistic food program, will create a welcomed, effective change in behaviors in a relatively short period of time. Learning new skills, forging new friendships and stronger bonds with family, students will lose weight but gain much more. They will gain self-confidence, self-respect, self-esteem and a sense of empowerment to make the changes necessary for a healthier lifestyle. They will also become responsible for not only how much they eat but what they eat.
