The study compares the effect on BMI of two different treatment options for obesity in childhood. Families with at least one obese child and parent are invited to join the project. The hypothesis is that family camp gives an additional reduction in BMI compared to a less intensive family lifestyle school.


Participants are randomised to two intervention groups:

A): Two weeks family camp and two years follow-up as a cooperation with primary health care, private rehabilitation center and specialist health care.

B): Four days lifestyle school with two years follow-up as a cooperation with primary health care and specialist health care
