Reset Summer Camp is excited to announce a new program to serve 18-26 yr olds. Reset Retreat is built on the same therapeutic model as www.ResetSummerCamp.com (digital detox, healthy eating and sleeping habits, social and life skills development, all under clinical supervision). Many of the young adults who enroll find themselves in that "failure-to-launch" middle-ground between high school and adulthood. This 4-week retreat program launches on March 22rd, 2020 in Charles Town, West Virginia.
A Reset Retreat is just that, a retreat. An intentional coming together of young adults all struggling with similar situations to detox and learn how they got here, what to do now and how to proceed. Reset is staffed by clinical and experienced professionals and runs on a 4:1 ratio of participants to staff. Supervised by experienced PhDs, our staff includes near-peer under-grads, Master-level professionals and PhD candidates with practical experience in this area.
“We had been discussing how to build a targeted program for young adults when we were offered a spectacular property in West Virginia, less than an hour from Washington D.C. It’s perfect and the location couldn’t be more conducive to making healthy life changes”, said Reset founder and Executive Director, Michael Jacobus
“As the parent of a recovering online gaming addict, I wanted to create an environment to bridge the space between young adults stuck at home, plugged-in and feeling helpless and the realization of successful, independent adulthood.”
Reset Summer Camp was founded in 2018 and operates 4-week programs on university campuses in Santa Barbara, CA and New Brunswick, Canada. The program is geared toward middle and high school students (and their families) who need more therapeutic intervention and digital detox than is available in the home environment. All programs conclude with a Family Workshop weekend and twelve (12) weeks of follow-up and coaching. Participants typically struggle with unhealthy screen-tine overuse habits and online gaming addiction including; social-media, streaming, porn-addiction, SnapChat/Instagram dependence, depression, thoughts of self-harm and anxiety.
