Camp ENERGY Announces A Week Long Experience

— MILLVILLE — Camp ENERGY (Exercise-Nutrition-Emotions-Record-Goals-You) is eager to announce its inaugural week-long experience for children and adolescents between the ages of 11 and 18 at Camp Victory this summer from Aug. 3-8.

The ENERGY experience will be focused on helping campers and their families start and maintain a healthy lifestyle. In its new expanded mission, ENERGY encourages holistic wellness. Rather than approach health as a physical issue, ENERGY teaches, promotes, and instills the larger factors that determine every child’s wellbeing. While these factors include physical exercise, they further encompass the nutritional, emotional, and mental aspects that are just as essential.

The underlying philosophy of ENERGY is that little battles, like what we eat, when we exercise, and how we feel about ourselves, all culminate to determine the direction of our health. That children who are unhealthy are the result of a multitude of choices that can be selectively targeted and subsequently addressed. By not ascribing to the paradigm that ‘health’ is determined by how we look, ENERGY will spark a culture shift for Central Pennsylvania children and their families.

The principles taught at Camp ENERGY require year-round commitment, but the camping opportunity has previously only been offered two weekends a year. This is the first time a week-long experience will be offered.

ENERGY is open to children between the ages of 11 and 18 of any race, ethnicity, body type, and gender. Campers must be willing to participate in camp activities, open to the idea of lifestyle change, and have at least one parent or primary caregiver willing to participate. Campers can live anywhere, but must be capable of traveling to camp in Millville.
