Weight Loss Camp in Florida for Boys and Girls Ages 10-24
Welcome to Wellspring Florida! Wellspring Florida is the first and only scientifically-based summer fitness and weight loss camp in Florida, and one of the most effective weight loss programs in the world.
Here at Wellspring's premier Southeast location, on the beautiful campus of the Florida Institute of Technology on the Atlantic Coast, boys and girls ages 10-24 join with a professional and highly qualified staff to become long-term weight controllers while having an amazing summer! Rapid and dramatic weight loss is achieved through a fun and comprehensive program.
Attending a three, six or nine week session, campers achieve initial success and gain skills and motivation for long-term weight control at Wellspring Florida, set against a beautiful backdrop just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River Lagoon. The setting is ideal for optimal weight loss, as campers enjoy private rooms, the state-of-the-art fitness facilities at one of Florida's top universities, as well as ample opportunities for outdoor adventures at the beach and beyond.
The Wellspring Plan
Wellspring Florida campers are boys and girls with common goals: lose weight, get in shape, and have an incredible summer. Campers lose an average of 4 lbs. per week, and 70% of campers maintain or continue weight loss at home. These weight loss results, which are published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and presented at national and international health conferences every year, are unprecedented among adolescent weight loss programs. The secret? The integrated Wellspring Plan, developed by leading researchers in the fields of adolescent obesity and weight loss.
The Wellspring Plan includes:
Activity Management: Fun-filled activities, sports, and games all taught in a supportive environment that encourages daily goal-setting and personal responsibility. Campers enjoy team sports like soccer, football, basketball and tennis, along with swimming, biking, kayaking, weight training, aerobics and more!
Diet Management: A fantastic menu of delicious food makes quick converts of those who think they won't enjoy eating healthy. And culinary and nutrition classes teach campers to shop for, order out and cook Wellspring-friendly food to keep them on-plan when they return home.
Lifestyle Change: Wellspring Florida campers have the unique opportunity to learn lifelong weight loss skills through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy sessions led by Masters- and Doctoral-level Behavior Coaches. Stress management, goal setting, and overcoming emotional barriers to weight loss are just some of the skills taught in individual and group sessions.
Family Involvement: Knowing that family support is an essential component to successful adolescent weight loss, we train families on the best ways to support their camper both during and after camp. Our free Family Workshops teach family members everything they need to know to support their weight controller at home!
Continuing Care: Our commitment to your child’s weight loss doesn’t end when he or she leaves camp. Rather, we offer Continuing Care through June 1, 2015, with ongoing support from behavioral coaches and online self-monitoring so that habits learned at camp transition to the home environment.
Wellspring Florida offers campers all of the fun of a traditional summer camp, with the opportunity for life-changing weight loss in a beautiful Atlantic Coast setting. We encourage you to explore our Wellspring Florida campus, read campers' weight loss stories, and begin envisioning your summer of supportive new friendships, improved self-confidence, and active fun.
We look forward to welcoming you to Wellspring Florida!
