Camp Strong4Life provides a unique opportunity to help jump-start a healthier future for kids 9 to 14 years old with a body mass index (BMI) greater than the 85th percentile. Kids spend a fun-filled, action-packed week with our clinical team, including nutritionists and exercise physiologists, learning to set healthy goals and incorporate them at home.
Your patient is a good candidate for Camp Strong4Life if he or she:
- Is age 9 to 14
- Has a BMI greater than the 85th percentile
- Can commit to one full week of overnight camp at Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, Georgia

At Strong4Life provider trainings across the state, one question we keep hearing over and over from pediatric primary care practices is, “Where can we refer our patients who need weight management counseling?”
Increasing capacity to address Georgia’s childhood obesity crisis is a critical need. In response to this need, we have developed the Strong4Life RD Program, Essentials of Child and Adolescent Weight Management, to connect registered dietitians with pediatric primary care providers in need of referral resources. Dietitians who complete at least three of the four trainings offered in the program, and are currently accepting pediatric weight management referrals, earn the title of Strong4Life Certified RD.
