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.

Teen Weight Loss Camp Picks Up Where Schools Leave Off

An investment in a summer for your child at a teen weight loss camp can bridge the gap between a school education and a life skill education that Camp Pocono Trails provides.  In addition to not teaching proper dietary habits, schools have failed to keep up with advances in technology.  Schools fail to educate children about missed learning opportunities that can result from surfing the web, being on your cell phone, or playing video games all weekend.

Gone are the days of neighborhood play where kids would get together for pickup games of basketball, running around the neighborhood playing made-up games or hide and go seek.

A teen weight loss summer camp is the perfect opportunity to address these soft skills in a structured format. And no camp in the world does this better than Camp Pocono Trails. While a typical summer camp can provide a reset opportunity, what long-term effect will this have if your child simply goes back to the same routine?

This is why at Camp Pocono Trails we focus on the transition home and the future. Not only do we eat right and exercise every day, but we also teach our campers why this is an important skill to continue when you go back home. Campers learn the value of watching their food intake and ensuring that they participate in enough physical activity to burn off the calories they consume.
