Abstract: Summer camps designed to produce weight loss are popular childhood obesity interventions. Nutrition education is a critical component of youth weight loss camps and we will present the curriculum developed for a 3 week TO4H after finding no ready made program. It includes “camper meal cards” a personalized nutrition prescription to guide the camper through family style meals; six lessons based on strategies recognized as contributing to healthy weight in youth; and a take-home packet for campers’ families.. The handouts (available at http://www.ecu.edu/cs-dhs/pedsweightcenter/camp.cfm.) were branded including partner logos
