Attending a Weight Loss Summer Camp

If looking to kick start a weight loss program then one option it the weight loss summer camp. A wide variety of summer camps are available in both the US and UK which are both suitable for children, adults or family groups.

Summer versions of the weight loss camp take a variety of formats from the traditional summer long session suitable for children and teenagers through to family camps with shorts programs available.

During one one’s time at a weight loss camp, a person can expect to lose weight.

However, the point of many weight loss camps is not to induce a program of short term weight loss but instead to teach the skills necessary for a life time of good health and wellbeing.

As with all summer camps, weight loss versions all have their own unique styles and ethos’s from adventure camps to the traditional military style boot camp. Prices can also range widely from the budget to the luxury end.

As such, it is important to pick a camp which suites the style of the “learner”, if a military style boot camp is not appealing, then select another format, one can only hope to achieve long term weight loss if the environment is right.

Selecting the wrong kind of camp will at best result in a waste of time and money and may at worse dent confidence and result in further weight gains.

A final tip relates to costs, if holding private medical insurance be sure to check whether the weight loss summer camp is covered, in many cases insurance policies may cover at least a portion of the cost.
