– Welcome to Summerland Camps: Where Campers Learn to Live with Technology –
Located in California and North Carolina, Summerland Camps are fun, safe, adventure-based camps for youth ages 10-18 looking for an unforgettable summer while creating new habits and learning new skills. We show campers they have hidden talents and abilities they’ve never tapped into because they’ve been too busy tapping on their phones.
We serve campers who want to better manage the use of video games, cell phones, and online digital media; in addition to co-occurring issues. Our approach is science-based, simple and sustainable, and grounded in the work of top industry leaders on video game addiction, internet addiction, and problem social media use.
Video Game Detox | Internet Intervention
Does my child need video game or internet addiction treatment? 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.

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-manage 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 action:
- Does your child sneak electronic use and defy limits you set?
- If left alone, would your child use electronics 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 electronics?
