Tony & the staff are friendly and supportive. My daughter attended pre-camp last year, for the first time. She loved it so much that she came back later in the summer for 18 days. She has been looking forward to returning all year. I am sorry for those that did not have a positive experience here, we have nothing but great things to say about CPT

The best camp ever. I cannot think of anything which was missing. Camp Pocono Trails was everything you want and more. I loved the activities, place, weather, food and the staff even better. I was really amazed by the way they planned and handled the whole program. I used to see happy smiling faces everywhere at the camp. I saw and even experienced myself the life-changing transformations at the end of the camp. Tremendous job to the whole team for such a success.

10 years of my life spent here mostly good and met so many people along the way that have positively changed my life. From "Be Your Best with Bobby" to Broadway trips to Camel Beach and beyond, this is the right place to send your kids to because there will NEVER be a dull moment with all of the activities and programs Camp Pocono Trails has to offer.

This was my sons first summer at this camp and I cannot tell you how grateful I am for this camp. My son has been having the most amazing time and learning so much. The camp director and all of the staff are wonderful people and the kids are all smiling from ear to ear. I highly recommend this camp if you are looking for the perfect place for your child. My son got to see the camp before committing to 9 weeks and he has already told me that he is going back next Summer. The smile on his face in every picture and the happiness in his voice when we talk on the phone, yes, you get to stay in connect with your child so you can watch them transform makes this whole experience even better. This camp is the real deal.

My daughter has attended Camp Pocono Trails for the last 3 summers and it has been a life changing experience for her. She has lost weight and kept it off, made many great friends, and has learned how to live a healthy life style. According to her, the best part about CPT is that everyone is there to accomplish the same goal and they support each other to achieve that goal. There is no judging! I highly recommend CPT.

Camp Pocono Trails is THE BEST!!! Tony and Dale Sparber are amazing owners .My son has gone 3 years so far and always has a great time learning how to be healthy and has every advantage at this camp. The camp has water sports, every and all of the best fitness classes and equipment, great and exciting and fun trips and delicious food. I honestly cannot say enough. Thank you to ALL the staff and especially for making my child feel so loved and taken care of I also love that the owners live on the grounds all summer as well. Camp Pocono Trails is by far the best camp ever.

My husband works at this camp and I can tell you that if they didn't do incredible things he wouldn't be there. He oversees the tech habit track where campers can learn how to best manage the quantity and quality of their screen time. Every teen on our street at home appears to be "addicted" to screens and as a teacher for the public school system in Florida I see this myself. I'm so glad Camp Pocono Trails is on the leading edge of helping kids get physically and mentally healthy. Keep up the great work guys.

Our daughter attended the pre-camp session at Pocono Trails this summer. She said she had an awesome experience. I was so happy to see her glowing face when she was telling me about the camp. She liked the rope courses and hiking the most. I was so relieved when she told me that she no longer fears the water and wants to further continue her swimming lessons. She had a wonderful time there and is determined to enroll for a full course next summer. Thank you guys to bring happiness on my daughter's face.

First and foremost I have to thank you for what you did for Chloe. My daughter came back a different child in 3 1/2 short weeks. We didn’t really have any expectations going into camp other than thinking that she would get something from it or come back the same. Your camp changed our daughter. Not only did Chloe lose 30 pounds in 3 weeks and 3 days, but more importantly she gained self confidence that she never had. The Chloe that left home walked with her head down, never wanted to leave the house, and waited for the next meal. The chloe that came home is NEVER home , obtained her goal of becoming a middle school cheerleader , and plays intramural volleyball. More importantly she made so many friends. Of course nothing is perfect. She struggles with food choices. We set s goal of maintaining her original weight loss. We agreed that is is maintainable. I wish I could give 100 ****************.

My daughter had an amazing time. It was her first camp experience and loved it! Tony, Dale, Michelle and all the counselors and staff are so genuinely concerned and caring about the kids! The food was great and they send your child home with a plan they can stick to! It was literally life changing and we are already hoping to send her next summer. I was so worried before she went that she would beg to come home once there, but that was not the case! She absolutely loved everything about her camp experience! It is definitely worth every penny! She lost almost 15 pounds in 1 month but more than that, she came home with a confidence I hadn't seen in years! What a blessing this has been! Thanks to everybody who works so hard for these children!! Thank you!!

Thank you Camp Pocono Trails, for the best summer ever for my family. The atmosphere was so stressed free filled with positive energies. I couldn?t imagine myself doing wall climbing, canoeing, and jumping ropes but this camp made it possible. Yoga sessions were amazing. Kids have great fun while learning. I can say it is the best wellness camp me and my family ever attended. Had the best experience.

Camp Pocono Trails provided our son with life-changing experiences ABOVE and BEYOND our expectations!!!Our 13 yr. old son was dealing with computer addiction challenges and even had trouble just getting him to leave the house.This camp not only helped him identify needed strategies with their New Summerland Program but taught him SO many other incorporated life skills WHILE losing weight ALL the while AND bonding with other peers.The amenities offered at this camp were ENDLESS...delicious healthy food,100 on site activities, spacious bunks, 2 outdoor heated pools, zip lining,(My son was like 👍)ECT. We are forever grateful to our new extended family Tony Sparber,Tricia Winfield and the ENTIRE staff for treating our son like their very own.You are welcomed and treated like family here.We stayed up around the ⏰ and did our research and there is no other camp like this.Highly recommend this camp!!! My son already has his friends picked out to go with for next summer.😎 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Robert&Carolyn

I enjoyed Pilates and Zumba sessions the most. The cabins were spacious clean and comfortable. And I experienced the most professional and courteous staff ever at the camp. I can’t wait to join them for next summer with my whole family.

What a wonderful camp experience for our son Charles! Before attending CPT Charles had never been to sleep away summer camp and he/we knew no one personally that either was on staff or a camper or or had attended the camp in the past. We were a bit anxious but quite interested as the camp's website provided so much intrigue about it's terrific program and so I reached out to the camp and received a very warm, welcoming and kind phone call from Camp Director-Owner, Tony Sparber. Tony took the time to explain everything to me about the camp and equally listened to concerns I shared with him about my son. Though it sounds like a leap of faith to send my son across country to a place/program unknown to our family, by the time Charles entered the friendly camp grounds on day one, it really felt quite familiar from the nice conversations already had between me and Tony and some other friendly staff members. Long story short, Charles went to camp for a 4 week 4 day session and not only did he appreciated his amazing experience, Charles lost and has kept off his weight, he overcame many physical and emotional obstacles, developed lifelong good habits for eating and exercise, made new friends internationally and developed a sense of self-esteem and confidence that has stuck with him! Charles enjoyed many new athletic challenges and also conquered many fears. Charles even won "Camper of the Week"! We were so grateful to the caring and nurturing staff at CPT and already signed up Charles for Summer 2018. A big thanks to Tony & Dale Sparber and all involved at Camp Pocono Trails!

I would like to tell you about my son Matt’s 2018 Camp Pocono Trails experience, and how the school year after that has been for him. Matt was a typical 13 year old boy; he loved video games, pizza and soda which did make him a little chubby but he played tackle football for years so it kept his weight down. Unfortunately, the summer of 2017 during a scrimmage football game before the season started, his knee was badly damaged during a play and he was on crutches for 6 months. Being practically immobile for that long he put on 40 pounds and was very unhappy about it, and as we had moved to a new town the kids in his school had never seen him when he was slimmer so he was labelled “the fat kid,” which was really damaging to his self-esteem. Desperate to help him I began researching fitness camps for kids and after speaking to Tony Sparber I decided to go with Camp Pocono Trails. I thank God every day that I did, my son is totally transformed! Matt was at camp for 6 weeks, (we had signed up for 4 weeks but Matt wanted to extend by two weeks because he was having such a good time) and in 6 weeks he had lost 30 pounds, went from a 38 waist to a 32, he had muscles on top of muscles, and was brimming with a confidence that I had never seen before. He has always had a fear of public speaking so when he called 4 weeks in to tell me he and a friend had voluntarily written and read a speech about friendship to all 300+ campers and staff I was floored! I wish I had found Pocono Trails sooner, I paid thousands for therapy to get Matt over his public speaking fear – 6 weeks at CPT is a bargain compared to that! Since picking him up he has taken control of his own eating using what he learned at camp. He practices portion control and looking for healthy options and actually eats vegetables – he still doesn’t like them but he understands how important it is to have a balanced diet. Matt has kept the weight off (as of March 2019); he has so many friends in school now that there are always kids in our house or inviting him to go places, the 9th grade football coach has already approached him about playing for the team next year, his schoolwork has improved because he is no longer shy about giving speeches to his classes or presenting projects, and he has lost interest in video games because, in his words he “Has too much going on now.” Matt has even kept in contact with some of his camp friends through the year, and CPT has kept in touch with us to ensure we have the tools to help Matt on his fitness journey. Tony, Dale, and the Camp Pocono Trails staff have my heartfelt thanks and gratitude for making such a huge life change for my boy. CPT, we can’t wait to see you again, Matt is already signed up for summer 2019!!

When I was at Camp Pocono Trails I posted a review. Now I had never really done anything like that before and the smart thing would have to wait until I got home but I didnt. some parts of this review I would have changed because I will admit it was somewhat a bit harsh and I understand that now. However the camp owner Tony didnt handle this review well at all. It has taken me a long time for me to rewrite a review because when Tony confronted me about this review he was very aggressive towards me. I repeatedly told him I was scared of men because I have been through a lot and he kept yelling at me being aggressive. After that he told me if I didnt take down the review he wasnt comfortable with me being in camp which is against my right of freedom of speech but he triggered bad PTSD. Even writing this right now I'm physically shaking and I'm scared. But for a grown man to bully a young girl and yelling at her isn't right. After the event for the entire week I could barely get out of my bunk because I was so scared of him and I would wake up at night from him triggering my PTSD. I wish he had handled it more like an adult and had treated me more like an adult. I hope he learns that sometimes maybe its better to approach not in an aggressive manor but maybe realize kids at this camp have gone through a lot and need a more kinder man. I'm not upset anymore about what happened anymore...I am nervous about posting this but I hope Tony realizes that there are always different ways to deal with situations. I wish he had talked to me instead of yelling at me. Now dont let this change how you feel about this camp. This camp helped me grow to be an adult and be a more confident person in social situations and I made a lot of friends. I'm voicing what happened to me because I need to finally let it go. Thankyou Tony and Dale for having a place that built the first stepping stones for me to move forward in my life. I hope the two of you keep this place going for kids who are struggling. Thankyou for the wonderful summer memories I shared with friends and for the wonderful counselors I got to know.

I worked at CPT this past summer after 19 summers at another camp. I fell in love as soon as I arrived. The grounds are on par with any upscale mountain getaway, and this is a camp. Tony is hands on to greet each camper and staff member as they arrive, and he calls it home. The main idea is to create positive self images, and these kids are embraced in a no judgement zone from the moment they arrive. All staff and campers are involved in the same food plan, exercise classes and evening activities. There are subtle reminders everywhere about feeling beautiful and working hard to be a better version of yourself. The nutrition classes are interactive and including cooking. I still am overwhelmed at the wonderful transformations I saw, and I look forward to many more summers helping these campers evolve into healthier versions of themselves.

CPT was life changing for our daughter…. Last year we sent our 8 year old daughter away to summer camp for the first time. She was very hesitant and nervous about being away from home for more than one night. We originally chose CPT because of its focus on an active lifestyle and nutrition. We were also comforted by CPTs liberal telephone and visitation policies.The staff was amazing and it was obvious that they really cared about each of the kids. Even the directors, Tony and Dale, were actively engaged with the campers on a regular basis and knew everything that each child was doing and accomplishing.When our daughter came home, she was a different person. She had grown from a self-conscious timid, frightened little girl into a strong, confident, independent and active person.She made a lot of friends and has not stopped talking about returning to CPT since we picked her up last summer. WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE!

My family has known the Sparber family for over 10 years. We started sending our oldest daughter to Camp Pocono Trails and now our youngest child attends. This is simply the best, cleanest, most fun camp you can attend to lose weight and feel great. We are SO THANKFUL they have added the technology track because cell phone use has become a real problem especially with our youngest. This generation does not know how to interact unless it's with a digital screen. We see how weight gain and screen "addiction" go hand-in-hand. Bravo for what you are doing Tony and we wish you success for years to come.

I was a camper for 3 years,this place is the ultimate oasis. It’s more like a resort then a summer camp. I love all kinds of sports and this camp has them all. I was very athletic when I was younger and this place has helped me become better and stronger and I was able to reach varsity sports in high school. I have been a staff member for a few years and enjoy helping the campers reach their goals. This camp has changed me physically and mentally and for that I’m thankful.

We selected Camp Pocono Trails for our 12-year-old son after significant research, including visiting CPT’s beautiful lake-side facility in Reeders, PA and following multiple telephone conversations with owner Tony Sparber. Mike Ryan and CPT staff exceeded our expectations over three weeks in Summer 2019. Our son developed more self-confidence and achieved many personal milestones at CPT during his first sleep-away camp experience, including unprecedented progress in the pool (learned to swim and dive under water!) and successfully traversing an elevated obstacle course and zipline. He was afforded many opportunities to participate in sports and fitness activities that he had never been exposed to as a city kid who is diagnosed with dyslexia and language-based learning disability (important to note that he does not have a weight or physical health challenge). CPT provided our son with outstanding individualized physical training and socio-emotional support in a unique, natural, safe and nurturing environment…no bullying, no negativity, no electronic devices! Thank you Tony and Coach Mike!

This is one of the greatest camps in the country. As a camper for over 10 years I would not change how I spend my summers. I have learned a lot regarding nutrition and how to live a realistic lifestyle. This camp is full of fun and allowed me to gain life long friends. I credit this camp to molding me into the outgoing , charismatic individual I am today.

This is my third summer working at CPT after having sent my 4 children here over the past 20 years. The camp has the most professional staff of mature adults running operations, notably Tony and Dale Sparber who have been in the camping industry their entire lives. The facility is clean and well maintained on a daily basis. Activites are numerous, fun and geared to helping the children succeed in losing weight, learn new healthy habits and make new friendships. My children enjoyed being campers, made lifelong friends and 3 of 4 have even worked here as young adults. I highly recommend Camp Pocono Trails to any family interested in helping their children lead healthier, happier lives.

Tony, Dale and all other staff are very involved in your personal success. They want you to have the best time of your life and lose weight too. I can not speak highly enough about this camp! This camp changed my life I lost 25 pounds in 24 days and felt so proud and I walked away with the friends I could ask for. Go to this camp no regrets at all it is amazing!!!!

There are no words to describe this amazing camp experience for my child ! He was overweight and was so very self conscious about his size. I had searched for a camp that would address this issue , as well as having a no electronics policy. I found Camp Pocono Trails online and the rest is history ! I picked him up from camp and I could not believe the change in him !He had lost 30 pounds and was just so happy. The experience continues, as he is not only following the health plan himself, but now I am going to join him. The staff especially are so supportive. The counselors are so caring and helpful. Whenever I would call, I truly felt that my child was not one of many, but treated as an individual. We are already signed up for next year, and I am hopeful that I can also join the program for the adults !

My 12 year old son spent 2 weeks here last July. When I picked him up he had lost 8 pounds and proclaimed, "This was the best experience of my life!" He had an amazing time and met many new friends. Best of all, he learned life-altering skills related to diet and exercise. He has continued to lose weight at home and exercise has become a regular occurrence. He even shaved over 2 minutes from the one mile run at school and is so proud of himself. I definitely recommend Camp Pocono Trails!

What can I say to describe "awesome"? This place must be seen to be truly appreciated. I attached a photo I took of the zipline. If you are a parent looking to make long-lasting changes in your teen, this is the place. It all starts with building an authentic connection with the teen. And that's what's so great about Camp Pocono Trails. The staff are "real." It's not a super clinical program with doctors walking around in white lab coats. If other weight loss or tech overuse strategies have not worked in the past, give Camp Pocono Trails (CPT) a try. It's through relationships that people change, and no one does relationships and fun better than CPT. CPT gets campers in the best physical and mental shape of their lives.

I was worried about my son's weight gaining and his lazy lifestyle when one of my colleagues suggested Camp Pocono Trails for his wellness. I checked their online site and enrolled him immediately. The camp proved to be of great help for my son. He lost 25 pounds of weight and I was amazed to see the change in his lifestyle. He left his gaming addiction and started showing interest in outdoor activities. The self-esteem in him was at the top. I can't thank you guys enough for his awesome transformation. Kudos to you!

Wow! I had the opportunity to see Camp Pocono Trails during the open house this year. The grounds are very impressive, a 350 acre campus with a private lake, two Olympic sized pools, and much more. Zip lines, a ropes challenge course, tennis courts, volley ball, basketball, a golf driving range, fishing, jet skis to pull inflatables, performing arts, and we are just getting started! What a format to create healthy lifestyle changes in young people! I'm jealous I can't go too!

I feel so refreshed since the day I have returned home from Camp Pocono Trails. It is situated on an amazing site in the mountains. The natural environment around is so serene and the weather is all pleasantly beautiful- not too hot during the day and a little cold at night. I have never participated in such a variety of activities before. I enjoyed kayaking and water sports like jet skiing the most. And the staff is so helpful and courteous. I was hesitant to go at first but it?s worth every penny. It is the best place to spend your summers. In a nutshell, it was awesome!

Working at Camp Pocono Trails is a heartwarming experience. The entire staff is like one big extended family. Plus watching the campers change is something you just can't put a value on. We have many staff that started out as the youngest campers and moved on to our CIT program, then junior staff, and now work with us every summer. I welcome any of your questions about this amazing family we call Camp Pocono Trails.

We love our campers! Camp Pocono Trails (CPT) is proud to be on our 20+ year of camp. Each week, campers will learn a different strategy to enable them to return to their daily life better prepared to tackle the obstacles in school and home. 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 truly the greatest gift.

My 12 year old daughter went to pre-camp (11 days) at Camp Pocono Trails this summer. I wish we had discovered it sooner because she had a wonderful time! The camp is stunning! Coming from the 110 degree humid summer in Texas, this place was a true escape! We had originally intended for this to be just a trial to see if she liked it enough to sign up for a full session next year so we weren’t expecting any fitness results, however she lost almost 8 lbs and seemed lighter and sunnier all around. The staff was very caring, my daughter loved her counselors, and she said the food was really yummy. The campers can choose from a wide array of activities from Lake front kayaking, swimming, Zumba, hiking, zip line, cooking classes and kick boxing (which is something my athletic daughter had never tried, but really enjoyed). They also arrange field trips to bowling, theater, paint ball etc so the kids are always on the go and having fun! Also, unlike other sleepaway camps, CPT allows you to communicate with your child via phone calls and email (which gave me a great deal of comfort). Camp is expensive, but it is a true investment in your child’s health and well-being! Special thanks to Tony Sparber and the amazing staff at CPT for making this a memorable experience. Our daughter is excited to go back next year for a longer session!

The camp was great, however some of the nurses weren't the nicest, and the camp was a bit pricey

My son is starting his 4th year at Camp Pocono Trails and can’t wait to be back! The staff is caring and helpful and the grounds are beautiful. He has made new friends each year and enjoyed new experiences including zip lining, waterfront activities, white water rafting, the climbing center, horseback riding, and trips to Broadway shows. He had fun while learning about nutrition, healthy eating and he lost weight! I would highly recommend Camp Pocono Trails!

We sent our 15 year old son for a six week camp session last summer due to him weighing in at over 300 lbs. He was a little home sick at first but began making friends and working out and doing the activities. He enjoyed the camp and came back weighing 270 lbs. To this day he has kept the weight of using the tools he was given at camp. I would recommend this camp to kids whoNeed some healthy changes

This summer was my daughter?s third at Camp Pocono Trails and like always she had an amazing time. I just can't describe how this camp has changed her life for good. She was more of an indoor person with a shy nature. But now she is filled with confidence and I always see her participating in activities in the parent photos the camp posts. She learned swimming at the camp and simply loved it. She continued it after coming home too and wants to be a swimmer at the national level. She is a totally changed person now. I can't thank you enough Camp Pocono Trials for transforming my daughter.
