Our adventure-based camps in Santa Barbara, CA and Asheville, NC focus on changing habits of youth ages 10-18 who overuse video games, social media, or digital media. Beach activities, robotics, and fun replace cell phones for a summer to remember. 

We use a positive coaching philosophy for behavior change.  Our approach is fun, science-based, simple and sustainable.  An aftercare program and a family workshop component are included with every camp admission.

We show campers they have hidden talents and abilities they’ve never tapped into because they’ve been too busy tapping on their phone!

Let’s face it- the world has changed dramatically in the last 15 years.  There are distractions everywhere, and it’s easy for young people to get off track.  Summerland Camp’s mission is to help young people learn to balance screen time activities with school, work, and home.  We see technology as a useful tool and a necessary component of modern life, but we also know that its overuse can bring young people unforeseen consequences.

If your child has taken to primarily socializing online and only feels successful when interacting with other children through the X-Box or social media, it’s time for you as a parent to intervene.  At Summerland Camps we will show your child they can be just as successful offline as they are online.

At Summerland Camps, we have an aftercare program that is second to none.  Campers continue to support and encourage each other after camp, and campers can access staff they built a relationship with at camp for a period of time once they transition back home as well.  Continuing these relationships back at their home environment is key to long-term success.
