Best Weight Loss Camp Option for Arizona Campers!

What a great opportunity the summer presents for adolescents and teens looking for a summer camp for weight loss. As parents, we know the value of summer camp. Sometimes there are just certain issues that as parents we can only go so far with.

Having a mentor closer to your child’s age is often beneficial especially when dealing with sensitive issues like weight control or healthy living skills. During the summer, many kids go without mentors at home and lack the mentorship they would get at school.

Because camp counselors at a summer camp for weight loss are closer to the camper’s age, they are often easier to connect with. At our summer camp for weight loss, we have counselors that have attended our camp in the past. One of the most important things at camp is this mentorship relationship. With the help of a young adult age counselor, campers can build their self-esteem in a substantial way apart from the influence of their parents.

Arizona Campers Get Great Results at Camp Pocono Trails!

Camp Pocono Trails is the number one kid’s weight loss camp anywhere. Our focus is not just on kid’s weight loss but on overall health, fitness, and well-being. It’s important to not just focus on an overall number such as weight when it comes to kid’s weight loss camps.

At Camp Pocono Trails, we focus on  weight loss, nutrition, self-esteem, fitness, and managing screen time. Most adolescent and teen teens and young adults growing up today spend inordinate amounts of time on their cell phone, playing video games, or on social media. This is why looking for a healthy structured alternative to fat camp for teens and young adults is so important.

Several Studies have shown that only sustained exercise will increase self-esteem and body image in adolescent and teen teens and young adults. At Camp Pocono Trails, we focus on long-term changes that our campers will adhere to when they transition home.

It is imperative that if you make an intervention with your child that the behavior stick. Fortunately, the Camp Pocono Trails program is totally focused on helping young people make these positive and more importantly permanent changes to their health and self-esteem.

Weight loss for adolescents and teens are much different than weight loss for adults. For example, parents should keep in mind that unlike adults, the weight for a healthy, non-overweight child that is not done growing should continue to increase.

Therefore, if your child is overweight, body mass index (BMI) is most likely a better indication of improvement then weight alone. For a mildly overweight but still growing child, it would be reasonable to also look at total BMI as a benchmark. However, for significantly overweight children a weight loss goal might be more appropriate. Each child is different and these individual differences are taken into consideration when you enroll in a high-quality kid’s weight loss camp such as Camp Pocono Trails.

Next Steps for Arizona Teens At Camp Pocono Trails

At Camp Pocono Trails, we offer health and fitness education that is second-to-none. Unfortunately, health and fitness education is not taught or often poorly taught in schools.

Just teaching young people about mindfulness of eating can produce significant long-term positive health consequences. For example, in a 2016 study that was published in health psychology, the Official Journal of the division of Health Psychology of the American Psychological Association, found that individuals with high percentage body fat make more impulsive food choices than those with low percentage of body fat.

Obviously, high percentage of body fat increases the risk of obesity over time. This study demonstrates shifts in choice patterns of food using a brief mindful eating training with adolescents. Mindful eating is a beneficial strategy to reduce impulsive food choices that impede weight gain.

Health and Fitness Camp: Next Steps

When adolescents and teens make impulsive food choices and do not plan their day, health consequences often arise. At our health and fitness camp, we also teach young people how to plan their time to not let the day just get away from them. We teach campers how to think about food so that mindless eating does not occur.
