Affordable Weight Loss Camp
At Wellspring, we know that the most common reason families don’t seek help for their overweight or obese child is the cost.
Like any successful healthcare program, Wellspring requires a variety of talented professionals as well as sophisticated systems, processes and administrators in order to achieve remarkable outcomes each and every year. This is particularly true for a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary treatment program like Wellspring. Of course, such a program isn’t inexpensive.
“You gave us our son back…how do you put a price on that? You should see him! He is energetic, happy, outgoing, confident, works out daily, looking forward to school starting next week. He is at his goal weight and participates in family food choices. I owe you more than what you will ever know; with the sincerest of thanks and tears welling in my eyes I will close this note.”
Our mission is to reach every child and family in need of our services, and, as a result, we go to great lengths to make the program as affordable as possible.
We do this in three distinct ways, each of which is unique to Wellspring among weight loss camps:
Wellspring’s tuition varies by program length and location. Please visit Wellspring’s Dates & Rates to find current dates and prices.
Understanding how critical weight loss is to their child’s health, many families seek financing in order to split the cost of a Wellspring program into manageable monthly payments. As a member of RiverMend Health, a premier provider scientifically driven, specialty behavioral health services, Wellspring is able to offer a special loan program, arranged through our lending partner, to families enrolling their child in Wellspring Camps. Unlike many other loan programs, applying for this loan will not negatively impact your credit rating.
“I wanted to thank you for all you did for our daughter Caroline this summer. She had such an incredible experience and was so sad leaving everyone. She said it was the best experience in her life thus far!! She is doing remarkably well and has continued losing weight and doing her program every day. We are so grateful to you and your incredible staff!”
Eligibility for the various loan options is based on a number of factors, including credit score and debt to income ratio. Unlike many other loan programs, applying for this loan will not negatively impact your credit rating. Simply apply online and take a look at the loan options available to you.
Families are sometimes able to pay for Wellspring with a medical Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA). If you have a FSA or HSA, you are no doubt aware that it is extremely beneficial for you to use this account for all allowable expenses, as you will be spending pre-tax dollars, thereby significantly reducing the effective expense.
Despite the fact that lodging and food are essential components of the Wellspring program, our reading of the Internal Revenue Code leads us to believe that it would be prudent not to attempt to pay for these components of the Wellspring program with your FSA or HSA. However, the remaining tuition and fees can be paid for with your FSA or HSA.
“Wellspring was absolutely the best investment we have ever made. Bailey is a different person because of Wellspring. She has lost 36 pounds so far and believes in the Wellspring program with all her heart! Jeff and I have both lost 5 lbs. each since we attended the Family Workshop, and wear our pedometers daily right along with Bailey.
Anyway, just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate you and everyone else at Wellspring. We are truly planning on making this a lifestyle change for us, as well as Bailey. Keep up the good work!”
Because each Wellspring camp has slightly different food and lodging expenses, at the end of the summer, please call us to receive an invoice that breaks out lodging and food from total tuition and fees.
Whether you combine insurance coverage and our loan program, take advantage of your Flexible Spending Account, or simply support your camper by attending the Family Workshop, there is a path for you to help your loved ones become long-term weight controllers with Wellspring.
As we know from speaking with thousands of families each year, where there’s a will, there’s a way.
You CAN Change Your Child’s Life This Summer!
