East Coast Weight Loss Camp for Kids, Teens & Young Adults

Camp Pocono Trails!

Campers enjoy learning about fitness and healthy weight loss at the Camp Pocono Trails weight loss camp. Located just 90 minutes from New York City and Philadelphia, Camp Pocono Trails is the finest weight loss camp in the country. 350 private acres, nestled on our own private lake front, is the setting where children, teens and young adults can realize their goals, while enjoying the best activities program… bar none.

The excitement never ends on our private lake. Campers have the opportunity to enjoy a host of other activities. From adrenaline building jet ski rides coupled with monster tubes and banana boats to canoes, row boats and pedal boats, campers get a spectacular view of the lake while breathing in the clear, mountain air.

Each pool is a site of fun, fun, fun. Camp Pocono Trails is the ONLY weight loss camp in the country to offer 2 separate swimming pools — one for boys and one for girls. Both these pools overlook a scenic view of the lake. It is nothing short of peaceful and breathtaking. Enjoyment in the pool includes water aerobics, swim instruction, water polo, water basketball, and water volleyball.

Camp Pocono Trails is accredited by the American Camp Association and sets the standard for weight loss camps with its beautiful lakefront, multitude of indoor and outdoor activities and the friendliest staff around.

The Odyssey Course and Climbing Wall

Ultimate Fitness and Fun! Camp Pocono Trails has the largest and most extensive climbing and adventure course in the country. Our Odyssey Course, Climbing Wall and Giant Swing are the ultimate adventures. Just looking at these incredible courses is enough to jumpstart any day! The most stringent safety measures are employed as campers defy gravity and experience exhilaration and a great sense of accomplishment. For those afraid of heights this is an optional activity.

Comfortable quarters and facilities: Campers reside in extremely comfortable quarters, with only 6-8 campers in each cabin, and are grouped according to age and length of stay. Unlike other camps that have bunk beds, we intentionally design our camper’s living quarters to be spacious, providing individual beds with comfortable mattresses. Counselors are always available, living in the cabins with campers. Our bathroom and shower facilities, conveniently located inside the bunk, are maintained regularly by a housekeeping service.

Safety and security: Our campus is completely safe and secure with 24-hour security and a full medical staff. Camp Pocono Trails provides a full-time nursing staff and on-site infirmary operating 24/7. Our staff to camper ratio is 1-4.

Expanded activities: Camp Pocono Trails features expanded activities to allow campers to enjoy off-site trips and special events. We offer a wide range of optional programs including theme parks, white water rafting and Broadway Shows!

Self esteem and healthy thought patterns are integral to feeling good and taking care of yourself. Camp Pocono Trails will help bring out the best in you and give you a complete lifestyle change. Bobbie Schecter addresses self esteem to help kids feel good and lose weight. Each week, campers will learn a different strategy to enable them to return to their daily life better prepared to tackle the obstacles in school and home. (watch the video) We also have a new optional program: Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Campers learn how to be "Masters of Our Thoughts", gain "Cope Ahead Skills” and get an After Care Plan and learn Relapse Prevention. (learn more)

Extensive follow-up program: During the rest of the year, our campers and their families are provided personal attention and guidance through our extensive follow-up program. We help campers and their families continue to set goals and work through unique challenges in order to be successful in maintaining healthy habits after camp. Our year round staff is always available for consultation by phone, email or Skype meetings.
