Camp Pocono Trails Helps Virginia Teens Stop Screen-Sleep Deprivation

Welcome to the technology era where our youth have unlimited access to technology devices. A mobile phone, laptop, tablet, gaming devices, television, virtual reality are just some of the devices are teens use daily. Many of these devices are being used in the privacy of their bedroom where the importance of sleep is replaced by the constant stimulation of technology.  When teenagers have unlimited access to these devices and structured time for usage has not been established it can be very harmful to their health. One area in particular that teens suffer is sleep deprivation. When they do not get adequate sleep as a result of device overuse there can be serious consequences.

In 2015, The National Sleep Foundation reported 90% of teens across the nation have at least one electronic device in their sleep environment. Sadly, it only takes one device that is overused to wreak havoc on healthy sleep patterns. It is undeniable that any device in the bedroom allows our teens more access to screen time. As a ripple effect, bad habits begin to permeate like falling asleep with the TV on or late night gaming sessions.

Cell phones are equally as disruptive with some teens staying up all night texting or chatting on social media. Here is a disturbing thought, even if your teen is not using their phone during sleep hours, the lights or sounds they make (buzzing, notification bells, etc.) can disrupt their sleep patterns.

The consequences of prolonged disrupted sleep are severe and especially so for teens. Bodily functions including body temperature and hormone release, growth, mood swings, behavior issues, attendance at school, focus at school are just to name a few of the negative results of teens not sleeping enough.  The American Sleep Association is currently researching the link between ADHD and sleep disorders.

The good news is that Camp Pocono Trails provides and teaches your teen how to replace these bad habits. The structure in our schedule promotes a regular bedtime routine and hours of screen free time daily. In addition, our healthy approach to nutrition eliminates sugars and caffeine before bedtime. The active lifestyle that Camp Pocono Trails promotes also helps your teen to exert energy during the day so that at night they are not restless but are ready to sleep.

Why the Term “Fat Camp ” Should be Avoided

Parents who seek a fat camp for girls or boys should know that framing the issue in a negative manner can be detrimental to your child’s psychological development. Self-esteem is an important determinant of adolescent development and mental health.

Academic studies have shown that one out of every three girls have a distorted interpretation of her appearance. Researchers have found that obesity is the most strongly correlated physical issue with low self-esteem in prepubescent girls.

Other issues that correlate with obesity in girls include family stress, sedentary behavior, higher rates of screen time, and school bullying.

Weight loss Family Camp Option

We don’t need research to tell us the weight loss family camp works.  It just makes intuitive sense. When you consider what is really needed to achieve long-lasting results, one can quickly see how a shift in family culture is necessary.

For example, it is much easier for a family to decide collectively to incorporate a walk after dinner or to take active vacations versus going on a cruise. As a group, we are much more likely to adhere to these cultural changes than as an individual. At our weight loss family camp, each individual family member will leave with the motivation, desire, and know-how to return home and be successful.

The group aspect of our weight loss family camp also takes the stigma off any one individual family member. For young campers especially, this is anxiety relieving knowing that the entire family is committed to change and no individual blame is being placed on the child.
