  • Tackling Obesity; Let’s Get Active!

As much as we don’t like to admit it, Ireland’s overweight and obesity rates are at crisis level. World Health Organisation projects that Ireland is on track to become the world’s most overweight nation by 2030 putting Ireland greatly at risk of increased heart disease, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and mental illness.

Early intervention education on nutrition and healthy active lifestyle choices helps combat this and gives children the opportunity to grow into happy, healthy young adults.

At Activ8 Camp we believe that we can empower children to make informed, healthy and nutritious lifestyle choices regarding food and exercise. We also aim to engage them in fun activities and strategies that will empower them to become aware of and manage their mental health.
