Empowered Wellness Serves Teenagers and Young Adults
A new summer residential camp, Empowered Wellness, is coming to Santa Barbara. Empowered Wellness offers camps and health and wellness services specifically geared towards teenagers and young adults looking to change their lives through sustainable weight loss, fitness habits, and personal growth. We created a fun camp experience filled with engaging activities to promote a healthier body image and improved physical health.
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.
Empowered Wellness leverages the very best weight loss research from renowned institutions including Duke University, University of Florida, and University of California- San Francisco. Our camps are focused on long-term growth in the areas of weight loss, nutrition, fitness, and emotional well-being. While campers certainly do experience weight loss while at Empowered Wellness, this is simply a by-product of the emotional growth and behavioral changes we focus on. We insert fun activities to keep the campers energized and engaged.
The Executive Director and creator of the Empowered Wellness program and author of Brain Powered Weight Loss is Eliza Kingsford. Eliza Kingsford is a licensed psychotherapist with over ten years’ experience working in the weight loss, health and wellness space, helping people heal their relationship to food. She was the previous Executive Director and Clinical Director at one of the nations’ leading therapeutic weight management programs and helped to redesign that clinical program to reflect current science and research.
At Empowered Wellness, our campers experience a holistic approach to weight loss and we find our campers are better prepared to stay at a healthy weight long-term. They also feel more positive and confident at home, school and with friends and family. Our campers also leave camp with a strong community that will last long after our camp is over.
All campers will stay at a residence facility by UCSB and have the option of attending for 4 weeks, 6 weeks, or 8 weeks in June-August. Empowered Wellness also offers a week long family camp in July and August. Please visit empoweredwellness.com or call 844-280-1190 to find out more information.
