Located near the heart of the Poconos, Wellspring Pennsylvania is the top co-ed weight loss camp in the Northeast. With state-of-the-art facilities, a convenient location, and small, personalized programs, Wellspring Pennsylvania offers campers ages 10-24 the opportunity for an incredible summer at the region’s only scientifically-based weight loss camp.
Wellspring Pennsylvania is located on the scenic campus of Marywood University, a 115-acre campus in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Scranton, Pennsylvania, just 120 miles from New York City and 115 miles from Philadelphia. The campus is easily reached by car from locations throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, and we offer pick-up service at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport (AVP) and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).
“We have had an amazing transformation in our home since my son, Eugene, attended the PA Wellspring this past summer. He lost 22 pounds in four weeks and has already taken off another 10 since he came home. Although we face challenges I truly believe Eugene has gained the knowledge he needed and has put it into practice here at home.”
– Connie C., Bridgeville, PA, mom of Wellspring Pennsylvania Camper
Wellspring Pennsylvania Facilities
Because of our location on a private university campus, Wellspring Pennsylvania is the best-equipped weight loss camp near the Poconos, including an ultra-modern sports and fitness complex and brand new aquatic center. Campers enjoy use of an indoor climbing wall, multiple gymnasia, cardio and weight rooms, aerobics and dance studios, miles of walking and running trails, indoor pools, and well-maintained athletic fields. And our ideal location near the Poconos allows us to venture off-campus frequently for a range of outdoor adventure activities.
Our campus also boasts state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen, where campers learn to become self-sufficient in the kitchen, creating a range of delicious and healthy meals in culinary and nutrition classes.
Campers are housed in comfortable, air-conditioned dorms, with one other roommate of similar age and interests. Staff members are housed between campers’ rooms on each hall to make sure campers’ needs are met. Clean, spacious bathrooms are located on each hall, and campers have use of on-site laundry facilities, as well as shared lounges and game rooms for down-time with new friends.
Wellspring Pennsylvania is an ideal location for a transformative summer of weight loss. In our beautiful setting, campers make great new friends, learn to live a healthy lifestyle, and have a summer of life-changing weight loss.
