Camp Strong4LifeATLANTA, Ga. /New York Netwire/ — Located at Camp Twin Lakes and overseen by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s pediatricians, Camp Strong4Life caters to children struggling with their weight and dealing with the health issues that come with that struggle. While kids may have initial reservations about going, it won’t be long before they are enjoying swimming, rock-wall climbing, archery, zip-lining, playing games, building friendships and making memories that last a lifetime.

Do any of these sound like a kid you know?

* She won’t put on a bathing suit and swim anymore because she’s too self-conscious.
* He gets out of breath walking up the stairs.
* Her teacher says she has trouble concentrating and lacks energy.

If you said yes to any of the above, Camp Strong4Life may be a good fit for that child.
