Kamp K'aana is a two-week, residential, fun-based weight management camp that helps obese kids, ages 10 to 14, and their families make the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve their ideal weights. K'aana is an Alabama Coushatta Indian word meaning "wellness" and also stands for Kids Achieving Activity and Nutrition Awareness.
K'aana is a partnership between Camp Cho-Yeh and Texas Children's Hospital & Baylor College of Medicine. The camp team includes specialists from Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine with expertise in all aspects of weight management including nutrition, behavior therapy, psychology, pediatric medicine and exercise physiology.
While Cho-Yeh's traditional summer camp program is centered on the Christian faith, Kamp K'aana is not a faith based program. Kamp K'aana is loaded with fun activities and programs you can't do anywhere else! Whether you're splattering your friends on our new paintball course, getting launched off the blob, flying down our zipline, or soaking your counselor in the dunk tank, every moment at K'aana is a blast. While you're here you'll get a chance to hang out with new people, connect with old friends, and get to know the counselors who truly make Kamp K'aana an amazing place!
For one hour per day, campers receive a lesson from a physician, dietitian or psychologist on how to change their habits, nutrition or activity. A healthy menu is served including a new fruit or vegetable each day.
Tuition is $1,600, which includes two-weeks of sleep-away camp, three followup reunions scheduled 3, 6 and 12 months after camp is over, T-shirts, and journals for the campers to use during camp and afterwards. Financial assistance will be available to low-income families in need of assistance.
DATES: August 4 - 17, 2013COST: $1,600
