Wellspring Camps Acquires Renowned Camp La Jolla
REEDLEY, Calif., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Wellspring, the leading weight loss program for adolescents and young adults, announces the addition of America's leading fitness camp, Camp La Jolla to their roster of 11 existing summer camp locations across the US, Canada and UK. Located at the University of California, San Diego, Wellspring Camp La Jolla will be the premier weight loss summer camp in the United States beginning this May.
Run by both current staff of Camp La Jolla and the veteran staff of Wellspring, Wellspring Camp La Jolla will be set against a backdrop of a beautiful beach, world-class campus and a $35 million fitness center.
"We are so proud to have Wellspring Camp La Jolla as part of our family," said Ryan Craig, President of Wellspring. "We have been searching for a new home in California and with the amazing facilities and beautiful beach atmosphere we couldn't ask for more for our campers."
Wellspring is the only organization in the United States that offers a scientific and comprehensive health program for children and teens with locations across the country. Unlike "fat camps", traditional weight loss camp, or weight loss spas, Wellspring's scientific approach to diet and activity management helps campers change behaviors in order to adopt a new, healthy lifestyle. Campers lose an average of 4 lbs. per week. Best of all, 70% of Wellspring campers maintain or continue losing weight at home.
Camp La Jolla has been America's leading fitness camp for more than 30 years. Nancy Lenhart, the founder and Executive Director of Camp La Jolla, is celebrating her 40th summer at camp this summer.
"Wellspring has a wonderful reputation in our industry and we are thrilled to join the effort in changing the health of America's youth," said Nancy Lenhart, Executive Director Emeritus. "We look forward to a successful summer as Wellspring's newest addition."
