Obesity is a very common problem around young children and teenagers, with the ability to cause many other co-occurring problems with it. Kids can often run into bullying at school, depression, anxiety, and other issues when they are overweight. Part of the problem is, they may feel helpless and embarrassed, and unable to talk to their parents, friends, or teachers about a solution to the obesity problem. Parents may take their children to doctors and specialists, unable to really find a solution. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we offer a summer weight loss camp for kids in North America – USA that can help get overweight kids back on track and enjoying life.
With a very regimented diet and schedule here at Rites of Passage NW, there is nowhere to go but improvement when it comes to diet and weight loss. We are a working ranch, and our teens learn how to grow, cultivate, and cook their own food here on the ranch. Our completely holistic diet may take some getting used to, but once our teens see the long-term effects from eating more healthily, they are more satisfied with the diet.
Exercise here consists of many treks and hikes that consist of getting back to nature. Our teens go hiking in the nearby Olympic Mountains, and also learn survival skills. Therapy is a big part of what we do here at Rites of Passage NW, and we combine traditional therapies with that of equine therapy, rites of passage therapy, and wilderness therapy. By getting back to basics with lifestyle, diet, and exercise, our -kids learn how to get the weight off, and keep it off.
