Jump Start to Confidence (This link will take you to campjumpstart.com for Confidence Camp )
“Disconnect electronics to re-connect with people”
(Do NOT have to be overweight to participate)
Confidence camp specializes in anti-bullying techniques and teaches kids self-efficacy. This means that they are able to cope effectively in given situations. We help them develop their own sense of personal power. This leads to an increase in self-esteem and builds self-confidence.
Typically the kids that attend this camp are really nice kids. They would never say or do mean things to others, but they “take it” from a bully. “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me” could not be further from the truth. A victim of bullying behavior has very deep wounds that can last a lifetime!
Conflict resolution, assertive communication, positive sense of self and purpose help heal these wounds. Our camp environment allows for the peer acceptance that is needed for a child to feel good about himself/ herself. Each child receives patience and support while confronting their fears. They develop positive self-esteem and confidence. The child will walk taller with their head held high having the skills to avoid being a target any longer.
All children–whether overweight or not–are immersed in a healthy lifestyle so that they can maintain good health throughout their lifetime. For example, fitness, nutrition and health classes are popular because they are FUN!
LeAnne’s mom said, “This camp is the best investment that we have ever made! She is a very different girl than the one we left at camp. Four WEEKS at your camp did more for my child than 4 YEARS of therapy! She is a happy and healthy teenager with a new outlook on life. She is excited about what her future will be.”
