Camp NEW You is supported by WV PEIA, Mountain State Blue Cross / Blue Shield, WV CHIP, and WVU Health Plan. If you are member of one of these participating plans, your insurance company will cover the entire cost of camp (less a $100 deductible). In addition to your deductible, a refundable* deposit of $100 is required at the time of application.

The current fee is $2,750. This includes the two-week residential camp, three follow-up weekends, and the required participation days for parents / legal guardians.

If you do not have one of the above listed insurance providers and still wish to have your child attend camp, you may pay "out of pocket" the full fee.

Below is a list of included items available to the camper and participating parent / guardian:

  • Lodging & Food: Participants will be lodged in an on-campus dormitory, three meals and two snacks will be provided each day during the summer camp. Lodging and food will also be provided at each of the three follow-up weekends.
  • Educational Sessions and Materials: Classes and outings led by a qualified nutritionist, physical activity experts, behavioral health experts, and/or others will be offered throughout the program. Materials such as pedometers, journals, t-shirts, etc. will be provided for all participants.
  • Lifestyle Coaching: Each child will be assigned a "personal lifestyle coach" who has been trained to provide support both during camp and after the child returns home. Between camp meetings, coaches will communicate with participants weekly and parents monthly, and will provide email support throughout the 11 month program.
  • Medical Assessments: Health care providers will evaluate each participant's health status through a complete health screening. Included in the screening is BMI measurement, a fasting lipid profile, insulin, glucose, and blood pressure measure.
  • Enrichment Activities: Throughout the program experience, participants will be given opportunities to participate in a variety of enrichment opportunities such as a theatrical production, an art class, a unique physical activity opportunity, and much more!

*The $100 deposit will be refunded provided all the requirements of attendance and participation have been met by both the parent / guardian and child.
