MoreLife Residential Summer Camp - Tier 3 / Tier 4
Since 1999 MoreLife has delivered the most effective child weight management programme in the UK.
This intensive intervention provides specialised support and advice to obese young people over a 2 - 5 week course. The programme helps them to develop the knowledge, skills and strategies to lose weight and keep it off.
MoreLife Camp is a fun, active and educational residential weight-loss programme. Through exercise and lifestyle sessions, children are encouraged to set and monitor their own individual goals.
The Camp staff specialise in various areas of weight management, from healthy eathing, physical education and exercise science, to nutrition and child development.
We have a dedicated psychologist to work with the campers, addressing psychological issues to tackle some of the root causes of obesity.
MoreLife Camp is not about dieting. Each child is given a meal plan by a qualified dietician to ensure they are given the right amount of food based on their individual nutritional needs.
To achieve long lasting success, we recognise that ongoing family support is critical to achieving lasting success. Parent and family workshops are an essential part of the programme and are held on arrival and at key milestones during Camp.
MoreLife employs a dedicated Camp follow-on support officer to work with families to maintain lifestyle change once they have completed the Camp programme, regularly speaking with ex-campers, and running informative online seminars for parents.
All campers receive three months of follow-up support via phone, text and email, plus ongoing access to MoreLife Online, our web-based weight management system.
