Camp Pocono Trails Provides Help for Connecticut Teens With Real Solutions

At our Residential Programs for Troubled Young Adults, therapists, psychiatrists, counselors, teachers, nursing and activity staff all work together as a multidisciplinary team to help your child.  By participating in a positive peer culture, campers learn how to socialize appropriately and interact in the real world without the use of screens. Over time we will reintroduce your student to screens in a slow, systematic manner. residential programs for  young adults 

Residential Programs for Troubled Young Adults are only effective if the parents are role modeling the behaviors they want to see with their child.  Children will be more inclined to read if they see a parent reading. They will be more inclined to exercise if they see a parent exercising. Find a hobby or activity your child might be interested in doing where you can spend time together in lieu of video game playing or browsing the internet.  Researchers also recommend replacing fast-paced recreational games with educational games.

Residential Programs for Troubled Young Adults that Serves Connecticut Teens

Located in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, we serve Connecticut teens.  Our Residential Programs for Troubled Young Adults is a viable solution for families seeking the very best option for their teen who overuses video games and related online habits (excessive Youtube watching, online pornography, social media).  

At our Residential Programs for Troubled Young Adults, we help teens learn how to live life in balance.  We are the premiere behavior change therapeutic program for teens that struggle with digital overuse behaviors including help for internet addiction, family discord, and social problems.  

Our Video Game Addiction Help Program help teens from Connecticut with the following issues:

  • Video Game Addiction
  • ADHD
  • Social issues
  • Disorganization
  • Family Discord

At our Residential Program for Troubled Young Adults, we don™t accept teens with psychosis or higher level issues.  In fact, many of our campers are quite bright with promising futures. Any student enrolled at Camp Pocono Trails must have an intellectual capacity in the average range or higher.  This is because our help is oriented toward building insight.

Participants engage in group and individual therapy to self-reflect and build insight.  But the help doesn’t stop there. We help young people find practical coping skills to align their daily routine with their long-term goals.  It™s not enough to acknowledge you have a problem- although that is a good starting place. Campers at our video game rehab program also leave with the skills and tools to be successful well beyond the structure of Camp Pocono Trails.

Our Residential Programs for Troubled Young Adults Helps Teens Academically

Academics is a major focus of our residential program for young adults.  Imagine if your child was able to devote the same mental energy it took to become good at their favorite game on a subject in school like math or science.  At Camp Pocono Trails, we can turn this around. Sometimes it takes an environmental change and an opportunity to walk the path of success to see happiness achieved through hard work, not idle time playing. summer camps

Our specialized curriculum will ensure your child gets back on track academically as we create successful, corrective academic opportunities for your child.  The Connecticut school system may have failed your child, but our focused academic program will help your student get back on track.

Now is the time to intervene with a residential program for young adults if your teen is falling behind.  53% of college campers say video games caused them to put off doing academic work. One study which examined adolescent video game play found that campers who played video games spent 30% less time reading.  The same study found that kids who play video games during the week spent 34% less time doing homework.

Residential Program for Troubled Young Adults Resource: Smartphone and Tablet Resources

Kids are becoming increasingly tech-savvy these days.  It™s hard for us as parents to keep up. At our residential program for young adults we’ve heard it all – campers bypassing routers, logging on to friend™s routers next door, creating proxies, you name it and we’ve heard it!

Here are some resources specifically for smartphones and tablets.  These devices are especially problematic for parents because they are portable and you can™t just block them through your router if your child is connecting at school or a friend™s house:
