Active Challenge is a non-profit organization run by dedicated professionals who have all been touched by the challenges of obesity.
Action is what we do. Action is necessary when your physical body prevents you from meeting every challenge in life with the energy and confidence to succeed. It is our physical body that holds us up, that allows us to leap into life instead of watching life from the sidelines.
A strong, healthy pysical body supports a strong and healthy mind with balanced emotions and overall good health for a lifetime.
Active Challenge runs a series of remarkable adventure programs where young people develop healthy habits, lose weight, and build confidence.
Located at beautiful Bear Creek Outdoor Centre near Ottawa Ontario, Active Challenge offers instruction in adventure-based programs such as canoeing, whitewater rafting and beginner rock climbing and rappelling. What an exciting way to get in shape and have a great time!
Our flagship program is the classic Active Challenge program for young women that has been changing lives since 2006. At Active Challenge you'll make lifelong friends with young people your own age, learn to love new adventurous activities and make permanent lifestyle changes at a program that will change your life.
Because you'll be losing weight alongside young women (or men) just like you, you'll find the environment extremely safe and supportive. Active Challenge is designed so you'll lose weight and have the strategies and skills to keep the weight off for good. Active Challenge does not put you on a diet. We follow the Canada Food Guide to Healthy eating and exercise appropriate portion control. We help you develop healthy habits and give you strategies for achieving a healthy weight over the long term.
