Help in Finding the best fat camp for New Haven Residents

At Camp Pocono Trails, we are the top health and fitness program in the United States. We serve campers from all over including New Haven.  Our program has been around for over 20 years serving New Haven families and we are fully American Camp Association (ACA) accredited.

Our program is located on 350 spectacular acres with over 100 activities.

Support for the Weight Loss Process

Support can be emotional, meaning having a shoulder to cry on when you are discouraged. It can be practical, meaning having someone to exercise with you. Or it can be inspiring, meaning having someone to encourage you to get out and move on days where you don’t feel like moving.

Thankfully, today this can be done remotely even if your best friend from camp lives in a different time zone. With modern devices like an Apple Watch, Fitbit or Garmin activity tracking device, young adults can leave Camp Pocono Trails and continue to encourage each other by creating fitness groups that shoot for a certain amount of steps each day.

If a group member falls off or stops using their device, other group members can step in and call the former camper to see what is going on and if they can offer any social support.

Why the Term “Fat Camp for Teens and young adults” Should be Avoided

Parents who seek a fat camp for teens and young adults 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 teens and young adults 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 teens and young adults.

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

Camp Pocono Trails is accredited by the American Camp Association. Owners Tony and Dale Sparber have dedicated their lives to Camp Pocono Trails since 1992 and want their campers to enjoy a quality experience. Tony and Dale invest in the best amenities and staff that a resort summer camp can offer. Since 1992 they have invested into making improvements year after year to provide campers with such amenities as two swimming pools (one for boys and one for girls), private lakefront access where water sports are unlimited, sports equipment, courts, and fields for all types of sports. Campers have it all here.

Weight Loss Camp Professionals

The Sparbers operate a weight loss camp but emphasize that it is not a “fat camp” run by a corporate entity. There are important distinctions to be made here. They have achieved success through direct involvement and they are at the camp every day during the summer. Also, the Sparbers hand select the most caring and experienced staff who return year after year. Striving for your teen to be nurtured by professional expertise and personal attention all summer, this family-operated camp wants your teen to receive support along their weight loss journey. This is how Camp Pocono Trails has established its excellent reputation and why teens want to return and stay all summer long.
