Health and Wellness Camp for Jacksonville Residents

We can pick you up from the Newark, NJ or Allentown, PA airports. A benefit of the summer camp for weight loss is meeting new people with similar issues. For example, many of our camper’s struggle with screen time. Some are very much into video games, smartphone apps, or browsing the internet. As a result, opportunities for sports have passed and their athletic ability is not on par with their school peers.

Another advantage of a summer camp for weight loss is building a sense of independence. As parents, our job is to provide the skills necessary for our children to be successful once they hit the age of independence. Giving your child the chance to attend summer camp for weight loss helps them explore their own interests and their own physical outlet at a pace where they won’t be made fun of or bullied.

Weight Loss for Young Adults

Weight loss for young adults should be approached differently than weight loss for adolescents or teenagers. At Camp Pocono Trails, young adults ages 18 through 25 are grouped together so that they can form a strong social support system when they return home.

Our weight loss program for young adults is created in a way to foster social support and destigmatize the weight loss process.

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.

An Approach Better than a Fat Camp

We are better than a fat camp in that our approach is positive in every aspect. We don’t call our campers “fat” or blame them for any physical issues. Instead, we focus on solutions as a results-oriented, positive weight loss program.

If you are searching for a fat camp, you will find no better alternative than Camp Pocono Trails. Most of our campers are overweight and need to start with the very basics of exercise and nutrition. However, some of our campers are more advanced physically, socially, and emotionally and simply need to learn how to manage healthy habits independently so that they can transfer successfully into adulthood.
