Camp Pocono Trails helps campers with one or more of the following focus areas:

We Are A Fun Summer Camp For Kids, Teens, And Young Adults!

Having a blast while building healthy new habits is what Camp Pocono Trails is all about. With over 20+ years of experience, we understand what it takes to build healthy new behaviors that will stick when the camper returns back home.

At Camp Pocono Trails campers truly have the summer of their lives while making new friends and participating in a wide range of activities. We provide all the traditional summer camp activities you would expect from skit nights to talent shows, swimming, lakefront activities, color war, and more. Simply put, the focus is on fun.

We add to the summer camp experience with fun healthy lifestyle focused sports, games, and workout instruction such as Zumba and yoga. All of this is provided on a private, 350-acre campus in the beautiful Pocono Mountains.

Imagine yourself waking up in a cabin full of new friends and heading off to a fun activity a ropes course, zipline golf, tennis, swimming, a challenge course, and more. We might then head over to the dining hall to learn about nutrition or take a cooking class to learn how to make your favorite meal in a healthy new way. Rounding out the day, imagine yourself having fun with your cabin preparing a skit, or perfecting your cabin’s routine for a fun talent show. At lights out, campers not only have a blast but also feel satisfied they made positive strides towards their personal goals.

Summer Camp For Building Healthy Screen Habits

Camp Pocono Trails offers an optional technology habit change track. We offer this track because now more than ever online habits have become part of our daily routines. While social media and video games offer a way to interact and connect with others, we have seen a rise in the use of technology as a method of escape from the real world. Campers that have fallen into a habit of screen overuse benefit from a summer of being screen-free while learning practical skills to manage their technology habits back home.  This track is designed and led by a psychologist and implemented through a team of behavior coaches (masters-level social workers and therapists).

Best Summer Camp for Making Friends

Many campers return year after year to just have fun, reconnect with friends, and maintain the progress they have made in prior years. Some campers attend to focus on self-esteem or social skill building.

Sometimes, campers are reluctant to attend. It’s our experience that most, if not all of these campers are amazed to find out that Camp Pocono Trails is a friendly, positive, and most of all fun place to spend the summer. Many of our camp counselors started off as initially reluctant campers but then after a transformational summer, they requested to come back year after year, eventually completing the Junior Counselor Program and eventually becoming a full-fledged staff member.

We even have senior staff that once started off as a camper many years ago. We believe that our return rate is proof of the effectiveness of the program, not to mention the level of fun that campers have every summer. After all, if the program was not incredible, why would campers request to return year after year?

Weight Loss Camp For Kids, Teens, and Young Adults

Camp Pocono Trails is consistently rated and reviewed by alumni as the best weight-loss camp for kids, teens, and adults.  We offer an amazing selection of over 101 ways to have fun.  We offer everything you’d expect from a great fitness camp and more.

Our sports programs focus on camper participation, not winning and losing.

Campers receive athletic instruction from a first-rate staff, where positive reinforcement is continually at work to encourage kids, whatever their skill level. Building self-esteem is key. The environment is always non-threatening and stress-free. Our counselor-to-camper ratio never exceeds 1-4. Add an extensive list of special events and off-camp excursions to places like famed amusement parks and Broadway shows and you have a summer experience unlike any other.
