It may take a bit of time, a lot of encouragement and a good number of tears to convince an overweight teenager the benefits of attending and taking part in a weight loss program. For some, the prospect of attending what is thought to be a traditional fat camp may spark any number of emotions from the teen if they are not already present. Emotions such as embarrassment, shame, anxiety or maybe even depression. These teens can be rest assured Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy weight loss programs for teens in Seattle, is anything but a traditional fat camp.
At Rites of Passage, we don’t just tell our students to watch what they eat or count the calories they consume. We teach them the benefits of eating healthier foods and show them they have the ability within themselves to lead a healthy, active lifestyle without the sweat and starvation associated with fad dieting.
We will teach them how to find and prepare delicious, nutritious foods through the complete holistic food education portion of our program; something they will thoroughly enjoy during their stay with us and be able to take home to share with family.
Taking responsibility for their daily activities while on wilderness treks and adventures, our students learn they are held accountable for the choices they make in daily life as well as the consequences of those choices.
As their behaviors change during their time with us at Rites of Passage, our students learn that it isn’t always about starvation and sweating, it’s just about making healthy choices and enjoying a happy, healthy lifestyle.
