Every BODY is a Bikini Body: Fostering Body Positivity & Supporting Campers with Eating Issues
Using principals from Health at Every Size, Body Positive, and Intuitive Eating movements, this session will support staff in helping to foster a camp environment that celebrates size diversity, raises awareness of weight stigma, and identify and support campers with eating-related struggles (including both restrictive and binge behaviors). Participants will gain the tools they need to be aware of eating related issues and learn basic support strategies that can be applied in the chadar ochel (dining hall) and in the camp milieu. Staff will also learn fun ways through art, drama, music, and movement they can overtly and covertly model that there is no shanda when it comes to our bodies – and that all bodies deserve to be, and are welcome, at summer camp!
