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.

A Better Alternative than Fat Camp

At Camp Pocono Trails, we focus on weight loss, nutrition, self-esteem, fitness, and managing screen time. Most adolescent and teen girls 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 is so important.

Several Studies have shown that only sustained exercise will increase self-esteem and body image in adolescent and teen girls. 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.

Teen Fat Camp Versus Camp Pocono Trails

It would also be much harder to convince your child to participate in a program called “a teen fat camp” versus a “fun health and fitness camp” like Camp Pocono Trails. Any program that calls themselves a “teen fat camp” obviously does not take into consideration the psychological aspect of weight gain.

To truly be successful at controlling your weight, a teenager needs to start thinking about their relationship with food and changing their daily habits. The only way to have your teenager take ownership of this issue is to create an atmosphere where weight control is seen as a positive and desirable skill.
