Health and Wellness Camp for Elizabeth Residents

For parents of New Jersey teens, watching your teenager struggle socially can be hard to watch. At Camp Pocono Trails, we can help them make friends and succeed in social situations.  As parents, you can help put your teenager in places and situations where they have the opportunity to grow and meet other great kids. In the ideal situation at Camp Pocono Trails your teen will develop social skills and have the opportunity to work with licensed counselors and social workers. These professionals will teach them how to be socially successful and they will return to New Jersey with increased self-esteem as well as new friends that they made at summer camp!

Not only are friends easy to make at camp but finding opportunities to shine abound at Camp Pocono Trails! We have New Jersey teens participate in drama and improv activities specifically designed to get them out of their comfort zone.  This builds muscle memory of in-person interactions and creates transferrable skills of socializing face-to-face as opposed to internet based socialization. Friday night dances are perfect opportunities for everyone to mingle and share success stories. We achieve our goals together and we celebrate our success together! It is no wonder that when parents pick up their teens they are delightfully overwhelmed by their beaming presence and self-confidence. Invest in a summer at Camp Pocono Trails and jump start your journey to a healthier, happier lifestyle!

Research and Young Adult Weight Loss

Research shows the importance of social support for young adult weight loss. In the Journal of Behavioral Medicine, a 2016 study looked at the role of social support for young adults. Interestingly, while those who received the most social support regained their weight after a year, those that lost weight and kept it off received the most “active participant” support.

In other words, social support alone it’s not necessarily correlated with long-term weight loss. However, social support from others trying to keep their weight off is positively correlated with long-term weight loss.

Camp Pocono Trails: Providing the Right Kind of Social Support for Young Adults

A unique program offering at Camp Pocono Trails gives your young adult the social support they will need to become successful not only in the weight loss process but in the long-term maintenance routine needed for a lifetime of overall health and fitness.

Young adults that come to Camp Pocono Trails and complete the young adult track will leave with a social support system that they can rely on for years to come. Research demonstrates how social support from others trying to lose and maintain their weight loss is highly correlated with long-term success.

Mindful Eating at Healthy Habit Camp

Beyond activity, we also teach mindfulness regarding eating practices. Often, teenagers and young adults eat meals and snacks on the go or while on computers or watching TV. This mindless snacking is often done as much out of boredom or self-soothing than it is to combat hunger.

At Camp Pocono Trails we teach the process of mindful eating. This means paying attention to your hunger level and paying attention to your food choices. We teach campers to make better food choices and to develop a better relationship with what they eat.

For example, we teach campers that it is okay to sometimes feel hungry, or that sometimes they might confuse being hungry with being dehydrated. We also teach them how to recognize if they are using food to self soothe for another issue such as boredom, social anxiety or just feeling sad.
