Wellspring New York is the only weight loss program exclusively for young women. At Wellspring New York, you'll make lifelong friends with young women your own age, at a summer weight loss program that will change your life, on the beautiful and historic campus of Union College in Upstate New York.
Because you'll be losing weight alongside young women just like you, you'll find the environment extremely safe and supportive. The young women of Wellspring New York are divided into the separate programs of Lower Camp (youngest girls, age 11 and above), Middle Camp, and Upper Camp (18 and older). Unlike any other weight loss program, Wellspring New York is designed so you'll lose weight and have the strategies and skills to keep the weight off for good. Wellspring New York utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy in individual and group sessions to maximize weight loss and long-term behavioral change. The cognitive behavioral therapy continues after camp ends through a three-month after-care weight loss program.
Last summer participants lost an average of 4.25 pounds per week. That’s 17 pounds over 4 weeks and 34 pounds of 8 weeks. In addition, the average young woman who attends Wellspring New York continues losing more weight at home, after the program is over.
