Arizona weight-loss camps are primarily located around the major cities of Phoenix and Tucson. Most of these programs are geared toward adults. They include both resort-style vacation camps and local day camps. Some of these are coed and others are for women only. There is also one summer weight-loss camp designed for children in Arizona.
Camp Shane is a coed kids' weight loss summer camp for children ages 7 to 17. This is a well-known camp due to the fact that it's been featured on prominent television shows including "Dr. Phil," "TLC," "Barbara Walters" and MTV's "True Life." What sets it apart from many weight-loss camps is that the focus isn't on losing weight specifically but on truly learning to eat healthfully and to exercise daily. Professional guidance counselors are on staff to help with healthy weight loss.
