Abstract
Camp powerup, sponsored by the American Diabetes Association, is a weeklong day camp for youth, ages 10-12 years at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Despite best efforts, San Antonio still faces a high rate of childhood obesity, especially in Hispanic/ Latino populations. The purpose of this project is to implement and evaluate the efficacy of camp powerup to further expand the program to other cities facing high rates of childhood obesity. The one-week program was conducted at the west side YMCA and offers an educational and fun-filled environment that focuses on diabetes prevention, healthy nutrition, physical activity, and obesity prevention education. The program was evaluated using qualitative and quantitative data through pre/post surveys given to the youth as well as quantitative data through TANITA Body composition scores of exact body mass indexes (BMIs) of the camper’s pre-camp and three months after. The results of this program proved that camp powerup had a positive impact with a 90% improvement on survey scores post camp as well as a significant decrease in the campers BMI scores.
