DASMANite summer camp for Kids that will be held at the Fitness and Rehabilitation Center in Dasman Diabetes Institute. This is a 3 week summer program that DDI have made that will teach children 11-17 how to make better nutrition choices, how to cook healthy meals, how to read nutrition labels and choose wisely when dining outside. Also, the classes will include fitness classes of all sorts (Zumba, Kickboxing, Dance, Running, etc) and basic first aid. Although we have stated that only overweight or obese kids can join, we have increased that to also include other children in order to stop the epidemic of obesity early on.
The program offers group nutrition classes, one on one nutrition counseling, and daily exercise sessions.
Why should you enroll your child at Dasmanite?
Being overweight or obese can harm your child in many ways, both physical and psychological.

Childhood Obesity prevalence in the Middle East in the 1970s was between 4 and 5% and increased to 17.6% in 2006, with more than one third of all adolescents and children being obese in 2008.
