Best Weight Loss Camp for Missouri Families!

Looking for the best weight loss camp for your Missouri child?

Seeking a Missouri Weight Loss Camp? We are the #1 Choice for Missouri Families

Located in PA, we are the best option for a Missouri weight loss camp. This summer many Missouri teens will meet other teens across the nation at Camp Pocono Trails in Pennsylvania. We are a short drive from Missouri, or we can pick your child up at the Allentown, PA or Newark, NJ airport.

Think about the adventure your child will have traveling out of state to the beautiful Pocono Mountain range. Sometimes getting out of town and going away to make new friends and have new experiences is just what it takes to help change unhealthy habits.

At Camp Pocono Trails, we address everything from eating right to nutrition, exercise, and we even have a technology track for those teens spending too much time on their phones or video games.

Family Camp Option

Nervous about sending your child out of state? Attend our Family Camp and the entire family can build new healthy habits!

Camp Pocono Trails is a resort-style camp with private lakefront access. We have it all! Other groups and organizations do not share these amenities. Campers can chose to swim, kayak, ski, fish, and do other activities here like water polo and much more. There are also two swimming pools and boys and girls have their own. In addition to water sports, there are other activities such as lacrosse, tennis, soccer, basketball, and more.

When parents seek a health camp for kids, they inevitably find our health and fitness program at Camp Pocono Trails. Our health camp for kids creates many benefits by engaging our campers in physical activity and teaching the importance of nutrition and healthy cooking skills.

One of the great things about our health camp for kids are that every camper will experience some level of success. When kids learn how to make nutritious meals, stay active, and manage other healthy strategies as part of their day, they will begin to adopt a healthy mindset that can continue for years to come.

With an emphasis on staying active and living healthy it is no surprise that many teens venture here to improve their overall health and fitness levels over the summer months. Camp Pocono Trails supports teens in a variety of ways to achieve the new image they strive for. The best part is that teens that come to Camp Pocono Trails meet lots of friends and have great fun with the traditional summer camp experience.

Missouri Teens are Welcome to Our Weight Loss Camp

We keep you updated at Camp Pocono Trails! Staying in touch is critical for campers on their weight loss journey. We use a parent portal where parents can log in and see photos of their child in action. Your child will be assigned a counselor as well. We have licensed therapist at camp too which work on issues like self-esteem.

It is easy to feel ashamed and isolate yourself if weight is an issue. The social bonds formed at camp can be critical in getting young adults back on track. Something as simple as a text message of encouragement when a group member falls out of touch can mean the difference between a small lapse versus a full-blown relapse.

If you would like to talk about our weight loss for young adults program, please give us a call today at 1-800-365-0556.

Video Game and Cell Phone Addiction Treatment for Missouri Teens

At Camp Pocono Trails, a lengthy and rigorous pre-selection and screening process precedes employment to ensure the highest possible success rate with campers. We are proud to say that over 65 percent of our staff returns each summer. Many members of our team were once Camp Pocono Trails campers!

Camp Pocono Trails understands that breaking old habits can be challenging, but with support from experts in the field and other teens who also want to see self-improvement you can accomplish your self-improvement goals.

Often campers that overuse technology tend to be overweight and in need of restful sleep. The serenity of a mountain escape is a great way to detach from old habits and discover healthy new activities that can replace them. Many teens are in need of a “digital detox” but completely unplugging is not a long term solution to chronic overuse of technology. At Camp Pocono Trails, campers learn how to self-monitor and regulate screen activity. Licensed Cognitive Behavioral Therapists (CBT) will support your teen to develop strategies to balance the amount of technology they use with scheduling time for healthy activities.

Campers leave our healthy skills camp with a new zest for life and a positive outlook that withstands the transition back home. If you would like to talk with us about giving your child the experience of a fun summer filled with weight loss and healthy skill-building, give us a call today at 1-800-365-0556.
