Camp Pocono Trails Helps Virginia with Tech Overuse

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.

Positivity is Key at Healthy Skills Camp

Our camp is specifically designed to teach campers healthy skills in a positive setting. We believe that change is best made when campers are motivated to change and see the value of portion control and incorporating healthy activity into their daily routines.

It also helps to see some success while you are at the program. At our healthy skills camp, campers undoubtedly see some level of success due to our structured nature and encouragement of activity along with teaching reasonable portion sizes of low caloric density foods.

The Gift of Weight Control and Learning Healthy Skills

One of the best gifts you can give your child is to give them the experience of being in control of their weight. For many campers, this is the first time they have ever felt successful in their ability to control weight.

Campers leave our healthy skills camp with a new zest for life and a positive outlook that withstands the transition back home.

Education at Kids Weight Loss Camp

Along with building healthy activities, children need to have insight into what foods to eat and what foods to avoid. At our weight loss camp for kids, we teach young people at a developmentally appropriate level how to make better food choices.

Additionally, we also offer a Technology Track where adolescents and teens can learn how to manage their cell phone, video game, and computer usage. Today more than ever we are seeing vast changes in our environment which result in often unforeseen consequences. The difference in food quality and portion sizes available is one example of this seismic change.

The availability of 24-hour, seven-day-a-week TV and internet availability is another example. As parents, our job is to prepare our child for adulthood as best as possible. This means taking steps to ensure our child can manage the distractions and temptations offered by today’s environment.
