THE SUMMER OF 2020 WAS OUR MOST MEMORABLE - AND MOST REWARDING - OF THE LAST 40 YEARS (read about our camp success during Covid-19)

More than a weight loss camp: Get fit & change habits!

Twenty years ago, we were just a weight loss camp. Now, the world-famous Camp Pocono Trails offers classes on fitness, nutrition, wellness, self-esteem, and managing healthy screen activity. Our qualified staff makes this and more possible at our spectacular private 350 spectacular acre lakefront weight loss camp in Pennsylvania – one of the only weight loss camps accredited by the American Camp Association. Campers benefit from the attention only an owner-operated camp can provide. Enjoy loads of fabulous activities in serene, beautiful settings, all aimed to promote long-term health, wellness, integrity and learning in a fun, mainstream manner.

Transformations & Letters

We don't believe in fad diets, deprivation, or clinical treatments in a school atmosphere. Rather, we teach how to live a healthier lifestyle by making smarter choices, being conscious of portion sizes, and engaging in physical activities while enjoying our beautiful, private camp setting. For over 30 years, the Sparber family has set the gold medal standard for weight loss camps. Our camper transformations are nothing short of amazing.

Internet & Gaming Habits

Get your kids unplugged from technology. Over the years we’ve seen how the unbalanced use of electronic devices has negatively impacted the social, mental and physical wellbeing of children. We help campers recognize their overuse of devices, and help them learn new ways to alleviate boredom. Our nationally recognized program motivates campers to experience a healthier alternative to electronics.

Moms Fitness Camp

We offer an optional mini-camp opportunity for moms to experience camp first-hand so they can better support their child when they get home from camp. “The place is just beautiful. I fell in love with it, I’m a big kid at heart.” said Mom, Debra Hayun. “The moms sleep on the other side of the lake in beautiful bunk houses. There’s tubing, kayaking, kickboxing, yoga, pilates and they teach us how to cook low calorie foods with lots of flavor.”
