Welcome (ENG)


Welcome to Camp Wellness

Camp Wellness is a unique one-week long trip to the Marbella area (Spain).

Here we offer family-oriented courses, or Camps, for Children/ teens and Adults with some form of Neuropsychiatric "Disability", such as ADHD, ADD, Autism and/or Asperger's


Our courses and focus differ quite a bit from what is offered by traditional medicine today; Medication and/or Psychology/ Psychiatry help.
No, these weeks differ drastically from this approach.


Our focus is completely the opposite, we focus on the overall picture with a holistic basis for all treatments and underlying ideas/ pillars.

Traditional approach:         


  • Medication, like Concerta and Ritalin
  • Psychologist, Psychiatrist
  • Aid in school/ workplace
  • Focuses on what the child/ adult has and not why. What you have, not why.

Camp Wellness


  • Holistic, a combination of alternative with treatment techniques and philosophies, non-invasive.
  • Family oriented. We place equal emphasis on finding strategies for the family as a unit.
  • Supply you with tools that you as a family can help and treat each other when needed.
  • What tools do you need at this moment?
  • Focuses on why, for example, WHY you/ they have a lack of dopamine, not just stating that you/ they have a deficiency i.e. What you/ they got.
    Why the family doesn't function on an optimal level as a unit and How can we help your family to operate better?
  • Long term solution with NPF-therapists at home

Family-oriented Camps


It is not only those "diagnosed" that gets his or her’s life tossed upside down, its also the parents and other family members as well.

First, you became new parents. With it a complete change of life, where all of a sudden you were there, not knowing what to say or do for the best. Unfortunately, your new addition didn't come with an instruction manual and so the learning starts. As time goes by, we all find our way and in the end and we became quite confident. Things settled down and we started to form routines, everyday life was now the norm.

Then, at some point, the problems began to appear and accumulate, our child(ren) began to seem different and not like everyone else’s. Different behaviors, all the mood swings, they seemed off, or rather they didn't seem to quite fit in society's social norms and standards.
In our quest for answers, soon a medical diagnosis was thrown in your face and your life changed.

Once again things became puzzling and confusing but this time (self) guilt, extreme tantrum outbursts, misunderstanding and outright lies set in.

What do we do now? Medication? Medication for what? They don't even know or are certain what the full and correct diagnosis is and what to medicate for, exactly. Amphetamine? Cocaine based medication? Is that the right path to go in the long run?


This is where our Camps come in and play their part. Parents and children belong to a unit... the family.

In order to assist and resolve this new puzzle, we have to think and start with the family and not the "disease" or diagnosis.
How do you parents communicate? "Are you talking the same language"? Do you function as a unit, as one or do you have completely different views on how to raise your child(ren)?
It is a huge responsibility for parents to have children with some sort of difficulty and if you want your child to feel well and function as they deserve, then you must act as a well-oiled unit. This is what this week is all about.

Is Camp Wellness For Everyone?



The answer to that question is simple; No, not necessarily but if you believe that these criteria/ approaches are in accordance with your thought or are open to find a better way, then Camp Wellness will be great for you and your family.

Holistic Perspective


During this week, we will not focus on the symptoms, this is something that traditional medicine does so well anyway.
We will focus on underlying causes and then address these accordingly, treatment, understanding, and strategy.


We offer an alternative route, where you and your children can influence their/ your situation on a daily basis.

More tools


As a parent, you will not only receive many of great tools to help your children but also a deep understanding of how your mutual communication has been and is, as spouses and parents.

Your relationship is perhaps super good and you are already communicating competently, functioning as a unit well and working towards common goals, then that’s great as then these new tools will only deepen and strengthen your relationship further.


Your relationships might be a bit unsteady and the road is bumpier than expected leading to misunderstandings, difficult discussions and perhaps heated arguments. You want the same things but somehow, you seem to talk past each other, maybe you have some communication hiccups? These tools give you a new way forward and are exactly what you need to increase understanding of each other, solve everyday issues and irritations, help you talk ’the same language’ and facilitate a way forward, without unnecessary misunderstandings and arguments.


The tools will help you how to communicate in the best way, set clear goals and work together towards these common goals as parents, spouses and first and foremost, as a family unit.

You'll get the opportunity to learn to live, instead of just trying to get by and survive each difficult day.

Family orientered


If you feel that the current situation you’re in, affects the whole family and that it would be better resolved by having a strong, balanced and well-functioning family, we have a set of great tools to handle everyday life and provide an understanding of how to avoid the usual ’speed bumps’ and  work as a unit towards homogeneous goals..., then Camp Wellness is the answer for you.

Support


For a week, in sunny Marbella, you will find yourself in a more comfortable environment where your children will find new friends who understand them and their situation because they live with similar or the same challenges.


You, as parents, will also find new acquaintances in a community, where you can find support and understanding of you and your situation because they are sitting in the same boat. 


After the week you will also be invited to a group that is there for you. The people in this group have all attended similar camps and understand what we are talking about and how it affects your daily life. Unfortunately, not everybody understands that.

Getaway


For a week, you and your family get the opportunity to escape everyday life, reset, refocus and combine that with getting a set of great tools to work with, obtain a different perspective of you, your family and your whole situation.


Long-term


A week at Camp Wellness does not solve all problems but it is a big step on the path and a powerful push in the right direction.


After the camp, many of our participants have asked themselves the same questions: 

But what do we do now? 

How do we proceed from here?


In 2019 and 2020 we are educating even more, highly capable therapists who will be able to help you even after you have returned home. We believe in a long-term solution, with support and help along the way.
