We’re Not Your Usual Weight Loss Camp
We’re not a traditional weight loss camp or spa. Although we do offer some spa amenities, our retreat is for women who want to make a real and lasting change in their thinking, eating behavior and weight management.
Weight loss boot camps and fat farms are quick fixes that don’t address underlying emotional stressors that contribute to and cause weight gain. Healthy, permanent weight loss involves the mind as well as the body and realistic changes that are sustainable at home.
