Weight Loss Camp for Kids, Teens & Young Adults
Developed by leading researchers from the U.S. and Europe, Wellspring UK is Europe's most effective and MOST FUN weight loss programme for children and young adults. Boys and girls ages 11 – 24 experience a summer of dramatic weight loss, increased confidence, more energy, and great new friends.
Wellspring United Kingdom is located on the Streatham Campus of Exeter University, in the heart of the beautiful county of Devon in the South West of England. While close to the historic city of Exeter, it is within easy reach of miles of coastline and rolling countryside.
On campus, we utilise the first-rate facilities for nutrition and culinary instruction, team sports, personal training, and fun with staff and friends. From here, we venture into the local area for an exciting array of activities — exploring the rivers, coastline, towns, and beautiful countryside. There is a reason people from all over the United Kingdom, Europe, and the Middle East come to County of Devon for their holiday—the location and scenery offer an amazing opportunity to explore and develop an active lifestyle.
Wellspring UK includes a Lower Camp for ages 11 – 17 years old, plus an Upper Camp for young adults aged 18 – 24. Both Upper and Lower Camps are geared to the capabilities and expectations of that age group to maximize effectiveness. Three, six and nine week courses are available.
Each summer, Wellspring UK students average weight loss of over 2.0 kg. per week. Typically, a number of students lose nearly 20 kg. during the course.
Unlike fat camps, Wellspring UK is focused on long-term, life-changing success, not just weight loss while at the programme. In fact, over 70% of participants in Wellspring courses from the summers 2004-2009 maintained or continued weight loss 9 months after returning home.

The Wellspring Plan
The key to our students' long-term success is the Wellspring Plan, a simple, scientific and sustainable approach to adolescent weight loss. Unlike traditional fat camps or weight loss clinics, the Wellspring Plan focuses on changing behaviours, involving families, and providing Continuing Care after camp ends.
