“Before walking into Camp Pocono Trails, I was as an obese teenager who desperately needed to make a change in her life. Going into this I was nervous and scared, but after the first week I quickly felt at home. I made friends and had the best summer of my entire life, all while being taught how to eat healthy and exercise properly. After two months of being at Camp Pocono Trails, I left 45 lbs lighter with a confidence I had never had before. When I went home I used the skills I learned at Camp Pocono Trails and in total I lost 100lbs. I finally realized at camp it wasn’t a weight loss journey that I was looking for, it was a life style change I needed. I was always doubtful that I could actually lose the weight I needed to become healthy but with the skills Camp Pocono Trails ingrained into me, I finally conquered this thought and became successful.”
