New Jersey Parents See Weight Loss and Health Benefits Across the Board At Camp Pocono Trails

New Jersey teens reap the benefits when they go to Camp Pocono Trails in PA for the summer. While parents often call us and ask for help in one particular area, such as gaming addiction, when they pick up their child they find that their child is different in several ways.  Kids that may have been introverts have had many opportunities to make friends at Camp Pocono Trails. In today’s technology driven world teens can easily get caught up in a circle of feeling awkward and isolated, and this can result in self-esteem that is spiraling downward. At Camp Pocono Trails, they will come back to New Jersey with more pride in their appearance. They may even go out on a limb and participate in a talent show or performance. This is the place where we break the negativity cycle and create healthy habits that last.

New Jersey teens discover that it is a powerful message to children when their parents invest time and money to help them make healthy changes. Sending them to summer camp shows them that they are important and that you care about their future. This may sound ridiculous, of course all parents care about their kids, but in today’s world we cannot express it enough.

Lifestyle Changes as Part of a Teen Weight Loss Program

At Camp Pocono Trails, we also discuss limiting screen time and how screen time has been linked through scientific research with obesity. To be truly successful at weight loss, teens also need to fully embrace healthy lifestyle changes. We have found that it is much easier to motivate somebody from within versus to try to hammer changes down from above. This is why at our weight loss program for teens we strive to find as many activities the camper likes so that they will continue to be active upon the transition home.

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.
