According to Tony Sparber, Owner, New Image Camps, "Today, childhood obesity is an epidemic. Those children and adolescents who are overweight are at risk for many health issues both in their youth and carrying over to adulthood including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and Type 2 diabetes."
New Image Helps Campers Develop:
-- Self-esteem and integrity
