* Autobiographical Comic example: Aline Kominsky-Crumb, wife of RobertCrumb, was sent there in her youth by her weight-conscious mother, despite being not at all overweight. The camp wasn't run that well, as all the girls were able to smuggle in lots of junk food. At the end, she weighed ten pounds more than before.

* In the ''HeyArnold'' episode "Weighing Harold", Harold goes on a fat ''cruise'' which was pretty much a fat camp but on a ship. Unlike most examples listed here, the "''Kid's Cruise to Lose''" was actually pretty nice; with caring and encouraging trainers, fun exercise programs, and an all-you-can-eat salad bar. Unfortunately, Harold left the cruise even ''fatter'' than he was before.
