Weight loss is never easy for anyone, especially when someone is a teenager. It can seem like an incredibly big mountain to climb. Trying a new diet or exercise regimen is even tough for an adult, and a teenager may not even know where to turn for help in meal planning and new diets. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we have a weight loss camp for kids in Washington that helps kids not only get the weight off, but keep it off long after they have left our program.
Diet is one of the big changes that teens will experience when starting our program. Our diet of completely holistic foods does take some getting used to, however our teens love the end result of feeling better and looking better. Teens will also learn how to meal plan and count calories, tools that they can take home with them.
We also teach that exercise can be fun and rewarding. It doesn’t have to be arduous and stressful, going to the gym several times a week. Teens will go adventure hikes and wilderness treks through the woods. Not only will they learn survival skills, such as making camp, but they also participate in these exercises as part of a team, and feel a sense of accomplishment.
Counseling is also a large part of our program. Teens will participate in group therapy and individual counseling as part of our program. We want to treat issues such as anxiety and depression, but also get to the root of the weight gain and its reasons.
