If you’re plus size and interested in attending a body positive adult summer camp…

… then you need to attend Fat Camp on August 24th – 27th 2018. This girls-only adventure will be held in Hendersonville, North Carolina and will have some of the plus community’s top influencers and advocates attending as V.I.C.s (Very Important Campers).

Did you ever go to summer camp? I did throughout middle school & high school and I LOVED it! It honestly changed me as a person, brought me out of my shell, and made me more confident. I still hated my body then, and I wanted to ask my parents to send me to fat camp, but I couldn't even bring myself to say that "F" word out loud. Well, I'm excited to say I'm going to Fat Camp this summer, but it's totally unlike the weight loss camps of yore. This Fat Camp is all about loving yourself, body positivity, #bopo pool parties, bonding & more! I will be speaking at the camp, so come hang out with me and some of your other #plussize faves in August! DM me for more info! #fatcamp #celebratemysize #bodyconfidence #fullfiguredfashion #honormycurves #bodyposi #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bodyacceptance #bodyconfidence #lilsnaxx #lovemybody #loveanybody #livingmybestlife #sleepawaycamp #poollife #psfashion #psblogger #plusfashion #plussizestyle #plussizeswimwear #fatkini #fatshion #fatandfabulous #effyourbeautystandards
