Chicago Teens Learn How to Manage Tech Use at Summerland Camps

Adolescents and teens today are interacting through their smartphones more than ever.  Research has demonstrated that more kids today are attached to their digital devices.  A meta-analysis study released in 2011 looked at 18 research studies found that Internet addiction might affect between zero and 26% of adolescents and college students in the United States, according to Common Sense Media

Simply put, if your child depends on you to tell them to put their device down, they are headed for disaster when they leave home after high school.  If your child wants to attend college, what are their chances of success if they have not learned the skills to self-regulate their electronics use?

About half of college freshmen will ever receive a diploma.  A small investment now in Summerland Camps will help your child learn the skills they need to successfully manage their technology use.
