This powerful documentary series brings viewers to the frontlines of the battle against childhood obesity as a group of obese teens struggle to shed hundreds of pounds at America's leading weight loss school. Terrina, Tanisha, Scotty and Emily (pictured), along with other students, will face radical challenges and demands at this weight loss program if they are ever going to get back to living a normal life. Wellspring Academy is the boarding school where they live and the last resort for these severely obese teens. Throughout the three month period that the teens spend at the camp they will be faced with emotional, physical and mental challenges including opportunities to dine outside of the camp with their families, taking part in a five kilometre race and learning to eat in uncontrolled environments with endless temptations. Will they be able to make the life changing transformations they need for a more fulfilling future?
