Camp Pocono Trails Helps Virginia Teens Stop Screen-Sleep Deprivation

Virginia teens are going to live in comfort while camping in the beauty of the Pocono Mountain region this summer. You might be thinking, how can camping and comfort possibly be accomplished? It happens when you replace bunk beds with an individual bed for each camper and comfortable mattresses. Also, we commit to not overcrowding our cabins. Our limit is 8-teens per cabin. Typically campers are grouped by age and length of stay so your closest friendships tend to develop in these quarters. With a commitment to providing spacious living quarters, these cabins make sweet dreams for teens.aWelcome 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.

Cell phones are equally as disruptive with some teens staying up all night texting or chatting on social media. Here is a disturbing thought, even if your teen is not using their phone during sleep hours, the lights or sounds they make (buzzing, notification bells, etc.) can disrupt their sleep patterns.

The consequences of prolonged disrupted sleep are severe and especially so for teens. Bodily functions including body temperature and hormone release, growth, mood swings, behavior issues, attendance at school, focus at school are just to name a few of the negative results of teens not sleeping enough. The American Sleep Association is currently researching the link between ADHD and sleep disorders.

The good news is that Camp Pocono Trails provides and teaches your teen how to replace these bad habits. The structure in our schedule promotes a regular bedtime routine and hours of screen free time daily. In addition, our healthy approach to nutrition eliminates sugars and caffeine before bedtime. The active lifestyle that Camp Pocono Trails promotes also helps your teen to exert energy during the day so that at night they are not restless but are ready to sleep.
