Camp Jump Start

Camp Jump Start at Living Well Village is a residential WHOLE health camp specializing in healthy lifestyles and weight management. Kids ages 9-18 years old live at camp for 4 or 8 weeks. Those needing to lose weight typically lose 7-10% of their body weight in 4 weeks which is enough to reverse disease such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome and fatty liver disease, and improve depression and anxiety. Normal weight kids also attend to learn how to be healthy/prevent disease while disconnecting from electronics to re-connect with people.
