Health and Wellness Camp for Norfolk Residents

We can pick you up from the Allentown, PA airport. We address all aspects of health and wellness, including overuse of technology (cell phones, computers, etc).  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.

Kids Weight Loss Camp

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.

Kids Weight Loss: Not your Parent’s Weight Loss Program

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.

Fitness at a Kids Weight Loss Camp

When addressing health and fitness in young children, it is imperative that we find healthy activities the child will participate in when they go home. In adult fitness, miles ran or calories burned are often the primary focus.  For children or teens, focusing on finding and participating in physical activity they enjoy is often more beneficial.  Most young people likely worry less about hitting goal numbers than they do about participating in activity that is fun.

Classes at our Weight Loss Program for Teens

Nutrition classes and culinary skills are taught at Camp Pocono Trails. Campers leave learning that they can be in control of how food tastes based on how food is cooked or spices and sauces used. Campers have even learned to like broccoli or Brussel sprouts which they may not have enjoyed before camp. Campers learn they are in control of the taste of food, which is the first step in changing their relationship with healthy foods.

One of the most important aspects of our weight loss program for teens is that we teach campers how to come back after a setback in healthy behaviors. To truly be a weight controller, one needs to learn how to manage life setbacks and get back on track after having a bad day.

One way we do this is by creating an overall positive atmosphere. At camp, we link our interventions with positivity. Because acceptance is critical to the weight loss process, we address camper self-esteem with professional therapists and teach our campers how to cope with life’s issues using strategies other than self-soothing through eating. Give us a call today at 1-800-365-0556 to discuss your teenager’s long-term health.
