Camp Pennbrook: More Than Just a Weight Loss Camp For Kids
We all have met with ‘snaccident’ at least once in our lifetime and for some us, it was more than that. A snaccident is an incident of eating an entire pizza or a bag full of chips by mistake. But, certainly, it is the fact that junk food can satisfy you for a minute but, being fit satisfies you for life! Food plays an integral part in weight loss, and here at Camp Penbrook, we aim to set ourselves apart from other weight loss summer camps by preparing our campers for the future by providing the best weight loss camp for kids and weight loss camp for teens to help make healthier choices. Between kids fitness programs, healthy eating workshops and so much fun, Camp Pennbrook is a summer camp, fitness camp, wellness camp and weight loss camp combined for girls.
Weight Loss Summer Camp and Our Inspiration
At Camp Pennbrook, we aim at including the right eating habits in teenagers. We have a meal plan which is inspired by ‘My Plate’ based on the U.S. Department of Agriculture in order to make Camp Pennbrook one of the best wellness camps. The certified plan is more of a natural and whole food focused meal. The food we include is authentic which is a combination of nutrition and taste. Processed food items are not permitted at the camp. We emphasize on portion control and less fat consumption all while teaching the importance of adding more fruits, vegetables, protein, and whole grains to their diets.
Know the science
Food is a major component of your weight loss journey. Any weight loss program comprises 70% nutrition and 30% exercise. Our meal plan is specially designed so your daughters will be able to receive all of the necessary nutrients, minerals, and supplements for their daily dietary needs. The average amount of calories consumed is incorporated and it’s approximately 1600-1700 calories in a day. This plan is appropriate as per their workout sessions and current weight issues.
Camp Pennbrook food plans for kids
Each day we provide 3 full meals and 2 small snacks for the campers to savor. The meals and the snacks are carefully prepared to incorporate all of the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that each child requires to feel healthy. We teach the campers that their favorite food such as pizza and hamburgers can be a part of their healthy and active lifestyle; when selected with the right ingredients and consumed in right portions.
If your child is a little picky, we do have other meal substitutions. It is our top priority to teach and encourage your daughters to try new things. We have a diverse plan that can accommodate even the pickiest children at Camp Pennbrook’s weight loss camp for kids.

Camp Pennbrook Wellness Camp Food Beliefs
We have always believed in the philosophy that ‘Food is fuel. Not therapy.’ Based on this philosophy, we teach our campers to make smart and right food choices while including correct portions. With this diverse approach, they can choose to eat the right food in moderation. Our eating program is simplistic and is not a food deprivation plan. This minimalistic program can also be continued after camp.
