Camp Pocono Trails
Having a blast while losing weight, getting fit and building healthy new habits is what Camp Pocono Trails is all about. With over 20+ years of experience, we understand what it takes to build healthy new behaviors that will stick when the camper returns back home.
At Camp Pocono Trails campers truly have the summer of their lives while making new friends and participating in a wide range of activities. We provide all the traditional summer camp activities you would expect from skit nights to talent shows, swimming, lakefront activities, color war and more. Simply put, the focus is on fun.
We add to the summer camp experience with fun healthy lifestyle focused sports, games, and workout instruction such as Zumba and yoga. All of this is provided on a private, 350-acre campus in the beautiful Pocono Mountains.
Imagine yourself waking up in a cabin full of new friends and heading off to a fun activity like wakeboarding, tubing on the back of a jet ski, golf, tennis, swimming, a challenge course and more. We might then head over to the dining hall to learn about nutrition or take a cooking class to learn how to make your favorite meal in a healthy new way. Rounding out the day, imagine yourself having fun with your cabin preparing a skit or perfecting your cabin’s routine for a fun talent show. At lights out, campers not only have a blast but also feel satisfied they made positive strides towards their personal goals.
Camp Pocono Trails has a reputation as the best weight loss camp around. However, we are so much more than a weight loss camp. Not everyone at Camp Pocono Trails is here to lose weight.
Many campers return year after year to just have fun, reconnect with friends, and maintain the progress they have made in prior years. Some campers attend to focus on self-esteem, lifestyle change, or to simply get into the best physical and mental shape of their lives. The focus on self-esteem and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an optional track for all campers.
Camp Pocono Trails also offers a technology habit change track which is also optional. We offer this track because now more than ever online habits have become part of our daily routines. While social media and video games offer a way to interact and connect with others, we have seen a rise in the use of technology as a method of escape from the real world. Campers that have fallen into a habit of screen overuse benefit from a summer of being screen-free while learning practical skills to manage their technology habits back home.
