Summer Camp for Digital-Detox Has Space
Reset Summer Camp for digital detox has a few openings in its 4 week-long session from June 3 – July 31. This program is for teens (12 – 19 years old). The summer camp is located at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA. Founded in 2018, Reset is the first of its kind, offering a clinical, therapeutic summer camp program for teens suffering from excessive screen-time overuse, social media, and gaming addiction.
“Many of our campers struggle with attending Reset, however, after a couple of weeks, they begin to adjust back to the kids they were before their tech addiction,” says Michael Jacobus, Executive Director, and Founder. Since the pandemic began, screen addiction has gotten worse with kids relying even more on their digital community for education and socialization. It has led to ever-increasing isolation.
Reset offers a 4-week summer camp program that includes group and individual therapy, life skills, and good old-fashioned summer camp fun. Campers arrive by car or by air to the Santa Barbara airport or LAX airports. Campers share dorm room accommodations that are meant to simulate college/apartment-style living.
The camp ends with a Family Workshop Weekend beginning at 2 pm on Friday, July 29th, where campers’ parents attend group workshops, and therapy and take part in interactive programs with their kids, all designed to rebuild and strengthen the family unit.
