Designed for parents with children ages 5-15, Wellspring Family Camp is located in La Jolla, California on the campus of University of California San Diego. Families attend for a one, two, or three+ week weight loss vacation at the beach, and learn the skills to continue with their new healthy lifestyle at home. Taking advantage of all the amenities of our Southern California location, families enjoy time together at the beach, take great trips to area attractions like Disneyland and Sea World, and work out with top trainers in UCSD's $35 million Fitness Center and in the surrounding natural wonderland of La Jolla Cove. Parents and children have time together for activities and meals, as well as time with their separate peer groups for Behavior Coaching, culinary instruction, and healthy living workshops. Parents report that one of the most valuable aspects of Family Camp is the lasting friendships they develop with other parents who are handling similar challenges.
The weight loss success experienced by Wellspring campers is no accident. Rather, it is the result of the Wellspring Plan, an integrated weight loss program developed and carefully analyzed by leading researchers in adolescent weight loss. The Wellspring Plan includes Activity Management, Diet Management, Family Involvement, Behavioral Change, Continuing Care.
