Weight Loss Camp Serving South Dakota Teens

While located in PA, we serve South Dakota  teens with our weight loss summer camp. At Camp Pocono Trails we have seen that technology overuse is a recurring issue for teens that come to our camp to focus on their new image journey. This generation of teens is immersed in technology unlike any other generation before them. Typically most campers that overuse technology to the point that it becomes detrimental to their home life, school success, and social growth realize that they do not have a game plan on how to get control.

Camp Pocono Trails can help your teen break the habit of overusing technology. This is why you should intervene and send them to our summer camp. According to Business Insider, 2017 over 53% of college-age campers across the nation use technology to procrastinate instead of doing academic work. A startling statistic is that 30% of freshman in U.S. colleges are dropping out due to an inability to handle unstructured time. Sadly, 51% of lower-skilled men in their 20’s live with their parent or close relative and report spending 75% of their leisure time playing video games.

South Dakota parents find that it’s not too late for their teens to learn how to manage their technology in a healthy way. The Summerland Program is now being offered at Camp Pocono Trails to help your teen quit technology overuse habits. Send your teen to Camp Pocono Trails and support their progress towards finding balance with technology and a healthy lifestyle.

Camp Pocono Trails is NOT a Fat Camp

Parents who seek a fat camp for teens and young adults should know that framing the issue in a negative manner can be detrimental to your child’s psychological development. Self-esteem is an important determinant of adolescent development and mental health.

Academic studies have shown that one out of every three teens and young adults have a distorted interpretation of her appearance. Researchers have found that obesity is the most strongly correlated physical issue with low self-esteem in prepubescent teens and young adults.

Other issues that correlate with obesity in teens and young adults include family stress, sedentary behavior, higher rates of screen time, and school bullying.

By experiencing being in control, your child now understands that how they look, feel, and come across to other teens is completely within their control.

Summer Camp for Weight Loss Success

When campers leave home for summer camp they are challenged with the anxieties of separating from home. Whether they go to summer camp for a week or three months campers experience the same insecurities. Everyone gets homesick and that is normal. However, something life changing happens for teens when they go to summer camp. They meet other teens from different places and discover that they are not too different after all. They make friends, have fun, and discover that summer camp is a great place. The confidence they gain from separating from home is incredible.

Camp Pocono Trails is a supportive, inclusive environment. We encourage participation and foster friendships. Learning to separate from home is a life skill. Summer camp is the type of experience that helps to prepare your teen for the eventual day when they must go off to college or move out of the house on their own. Support your teen’s healthy growth and send them to Camp Pocono Trails. Help your South Dakota teen see that overcoming small pains results in huge gains!
