The Summerland Program at Camp Pocono Trails
Look up from your screen and experience real adventure!
The Summerland program at Camp Pocono Trails is, by far, the most professionally managed, the most fun, and the safest video game, social media, and smartphone behavior change program in the world. Our world-famous program has been featured in media outlets across the United States. We offer a kid’s camp (ages 7-17), a Young Adult program (ages 18-21), and Moms Camp.
At Camp Pocono Trails, we care deeply for our camper’s well-being, health, and future. Fun is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle on our 350-acre private lakefront. We offer an amazing selection of over 100 activities — everything you’d expect from a great summer camp and more. We have it all, from waterskiing to a climbing wall, yoga to aerobics, golf to tennis, cooking classes, nutritional instruction, jetskis, two heated Olympic-sized pools, and great workouts guided by inspiring instructors.
Ready for the summer of your life? Our sports programs focus on camper participation, not winning and losing. Campers receive athletic instruction from a first-rate staff, where positive reinforcement is continually at work to encourage kids, whatever their skill level. Building self-esteem is key. The environment is always non-threatening and stress-free.
We offer caring, supportive staff and our Directors have decades of camp management experience. Our counselor-to-camper ratio never exceeds 1-4. With an extensive list of special events and off-camp excursions including whitewater rafting and paintball, you have a summer experience unlike any other. No wonder our camps attract campers from all over the world!

Video Game Addiction: The Time for Action is Now
As parents, it’s our job to guide our children to independence. If your child’s ability to self-regulate their behaviors would prevent them from being successful in college or independent living, make an intervention now to correct their habits before it gets out of control.
Here are some questions to explore to see if now is the time for a reset opportunnity::
- Does your child sneak use of their device/video games and defy limits you set?
- If left alone, would your child play online over doing their homework or other responsibilities?
- Does your child miss out on socialization opportunities or outside play to engage in screen activity?
- Has your child’s schoolwork or home responsibilities (keeping room clean, etc) fallen off due to screen activity?
