Wellspring Campers are Just Like You
At Wellspring, you'll meet people who are just like you-kids, teens and young adults trying to lose weight, get in shape, have a great summer, and make lifelong friends. Imagine a summer surrounded by people your age, all working together toward a common goal, supporting each other through new challenges, and celebrating one another's milestones.
That's a summer at Wellspring.
WEIGHT: Applicants ages 11+ to all camps except Wellspring Camp La Jolla must be at least 20 pounds overweight and have been struggling with their weight for at least one year. Campers ages 5-15 will be admitted to Wellspring Family Camp if they are overweight.
ATTITUDE: Campers must view Wellspring as an opportunity. Wellspring will not admit campers who are clearly opposed to attending, or who have a history of oppositional behavior or violence.
MEDICAL: Wellspring will not admit campers with medical issues requiring hospitalization.
Step 1: Submit a Wellspring Camps Application. This may be done over the phone by calling (866) 364-0808, or online by filling out our Wellspring Online Application.
A non-refundable deposit is due at the time of application, and varies according to program length:
- 3 weeks - $750 deposit
- 4-7 weeks - $1,200 deposit
- 8-12 weeks - $1,500 deposit
- Wellspring Family Camp - $500 per week
- Wellspring UK - £400 for 3 weeks; £600 for 6 weeks ; £800 for 9 weeks
The deposit is non-refundable, unless the application is not accepted (see Admission Criteria, above).
Step 2: Complete an Enrollment Package. Following receipt of your completed application and deposit, you will receive an enrollment package via email, which includes questions for parents, for the prospective camper, and for the family physician. Families are asked to complete the package at least 8 days before the start of camp. Campers are not officially admitted to Wellspring until all forms in the enrollment package have been received.
Step 3: Pay the Tuition Balance. The remaining balance of tuition is due at least 8 days before the session start date. Payment can be made by credit card, check or money order, or student loan disbursement. Tuition and listed fees include all expenses while the camper remains at Wellspring, with the following limited exceptions:
- Any required medical treatment while your child is at camp
- A laundry fee of $25 per 3-week session at some camps (details provided in enrollment packages).
- Surf Camp (optional, cost to be determined)
- Some camps charge an additional $25 for airport and train station pick-up or drop-off. Details are provided in your enrollment package.
Families may purchase cancellation insurance from Wellspring for an additional 15% of the tuition cost. Families who purchase insurance will be entitled to a pro rata tuition refund for all days missed. Cancellation insurance may be selected at the time tuition is paid (at least 8 days before the session start date).
