Wellspring Camps is affiliated with Wellspring, and previously affiliates with Wellspring Academy—weight loss boarding schools located in California and North Carolina.
Wellspring Camps serve children, adolescents and young adults ages 5–24. An older study from 2005 which includes a small selection of campers and only self-reported data, found that 70 percent of Wellspring campers had maintained the weight or continued to lose in the six to nine months after camp ended; the weight loss afterward averaged 7.4 pounds. Daniel Kirschenbaum, Wellspring’s former Clinical Director and Director of Chicago’s Center for Behavioral Medicine & Sport Psychology, tracked Wellspring's long-term outcomes as compared to other summer weight loss programs. Kirschenbaum’s research, campers consistently demonstrate average weight loss of 4 lbs. In 6-12 month follow-up studies, the average camper goes on to lose more weight– an additional 5-8 lbs., on average.
Fifteen per cent of Wellspring campers come from outside the U. Wellspring's long term outcomes and approach have come into question in the medical community.
