In today's health matters, a program in the North Carolina mountains promises to change the lives of young people who are overweight.
It's not cheap, but, compared to a lifetime of obesity, you might consider it quite a deal.
This is wellspring's Camp Hope. A place where kids come not just to lose weight but to learn why they gained it, in the first place. Wellspring takes kids for several weeks over the summer and immerses them in a new world.
The wellspring model combines vigorous exercise with learning how to be active, all day, while carefully watching what you eat.
Camp is really just a dress rehearsal for what they need to do, every day, back home. This camp has sessions, every day, that helps teach kids why they've developed some bad habits.
