SANTA BARBARA, Calif., April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Empowered Wellness kicks off its 2018 summer camp program for adolescent teens and young adults in a brand new Santa Barbara location. Empowered Wellness offers campers a holistic and comprehensive approach to achieve lifelong healthy results in maintaining manageable weight. The camp is specifically designed to help campers look at changing their lives through sustainable weight loss, powerful body image interventions, creating healthy fitness habits, and instilling personal growth all while making lifelong friends.
Located 80 miles from Los Angeles, across the street from The University of California, Santa Barbara in a closed and private facility, the camp provides parents and their campers a scientific and sustainable approach to weight loss. Obesity, specifically in young people has rapidly become a growing epidemic with 90% of obese children becoming obese adults.
Empowered Wellness has tapped Eliza Kingsford, as its Co-Founder and Executive Director. She is a licensed psychotherapist with over 10 years of experience working in the health and wellness space specifically with young people. Her renowned book, "Brain Powered Weight-loss," was featured in Shape, Parade and Live Naturally Magazine. She has appeared on such shows as Doctor Oz, Dr. Phil and more. Eliza worked directly with top researchers, conducting research on weight management strategies, food addiction and obesity treatments to create the EW program structure for its camp.
"Campers come to Empowered Wellness to learn about body image, self-acceptance, and lifestyle habits that will help change their shape and daily habits. It's a different approach to weight loss, personally catered to the individual. It is an opportunity to create self-love and experience new adventures in a beautiful location," said Kingsford. Empowered Wellness methods provide long-term solutions instead of "fad diets" in a non-judgmental space to change the trajectory of weight gain, and to move into adulthood with tools to lead a healthy lifestyle.
While there is a strong clinical element to this program, our camp is also designed to provide the ultimate summer camp experience. Campers will participate in activities, ranging from arts and crafts, swimming, basketball, hiking, outdoor games, kayaking, surfing, visiting Disneyland, Universal Studios, and the Channel Islands.
Camp is open to young adults ages 13-24. Summer Sessions begin June 17, 2018. Sign-ups are open now (April, 2018). Spots are limited. The 4-week session 1 is June 17-July 14.
