“Before walking into New Image Camp, I was as an obese teenager who desperately needed to make a change in her life. Going into this I was nervous and scared, but after the first week I quickly felt at home. I made friends and had the best summer of my entire life, all while being taught how to eat healthy and exercise properly. After two months of being at New Image Camp, I left 45 lbs lighter with a confidence I had never had before. When I went home I used the skills I learned at New Image Camp and in total I lost 100lbs. I finally realized at camp it wasn’t a weight loss journey that I was looking for, it was a life style change I needed. I was always doubtful that I could actually lose the weight I needed to become healthy but with the skills New Image Camp ingrained into me, I finally conquered this thought and became successful.”
"...I was insecure and knew I needed to lose weight so I went [to CPT] and now camp is like my home away from home. it's so much fun and I made amazing friends. I've learned so much from this camp. I'm going to go back next summer for sure!" -Jess
"They told me to get it together. So I went and got it together. Still a ton more work to do, but progress is progress. 43 pounds in 13 weeks and we're still running & gunning..." -Seth
"I was watching ‘Fat Camp’, and realized how much I wanted to go back and see all of my friends. Your camp truly changed my life and my mother says that I am totally different now. I’m stronger, I have more friends and I just love life. Thank you so much for taking such great care of me while I was there. By the way, I’ve lost about 65-70 lbs now and recieved the First Runner Up award in the Miss Texhoma Beauty Pageant! That is something I thought I never would’ve accomplished. I just want to thank you once more for changing my life so much!" -Bethany
"This has been a great year for me. I am down 65 pounds from my heaviest but I am still working towards my goal weight. In the fall, I was on the cross country team at school and during the winter, I was on the basketball team. Basketball season just ended so now I am doing track and field and I am also doing basketball off season. Also, when is motivational mania because I want to be a speaker because I have wanted to be one since my first summer." -Arielle
We often let our doubts, fears, and insecurities build and fester for so long that the person we were destined to become is trapped and buried beneath it all. The external transformations of our campers are truly remarkable, but the internal change, the joy, the confidence, the glow, the belief that you can go, do, see, and be whoever you want to be is the greatest gift. Congrats Sydney!
"...Now because of the foundation CPT has given me I am 135 pounds and healthier and happier than ever. Although CPT is not where my transformation started I would not be the person I am today without it. I am thankful everyday for what Camp Pocono Trails has done for me." -Nichole
"Before this camp it was very challenging for me to lose weight. This camp not only helped me physically but mentally; My self esteem rocketed. I learned so many things such as eating habits and how to exercise correctly. Not only did I lose weight but I made friends and learned skills that will be with me forever! Because of the knowledge I have, I was able to lose more weight and now I'm finally down to my goal weight and I couldn't have done it without the help of CPT! It was an experience I'll never forget!" -Jehna
