Value Components Summary

Summerland Camps offers the first and only summer camp environment for screen time overuse.  We help with a scientifically based curriculum to address excessive internet gaming, X-Box, handheld devices, social media, and virtual reality overuse.

There are other programs that claim to help address internet gaming addiction, social media overuse, and so on.  However, for most of these programs, it’s more of an afterthought, an add-on to their other therapy offerings.

We are unique in that screen time overuse is our primary focus, with social problems, frustration, anger, and anxiety being related to the screen overuse habit.  We don’t just gloss over the digital media issue, we hit it head-on.

Our positive focus is as unique as our location.  Because we are rooted in self-monitoring methodology, we stay focused on creating goals and the behaviors it takes to achieve these goals.  We don’t see your kid as, “broken.”  They just have some bad habits, and habits can be unlearned, and new habits can be learned in their place.

We focus on screen-based activities.  This generally means internally focused issues co-occur like anxiety, depression, and poor social skills.  A lot of our campers also have problems with ADD / ADHD, and could benefit from learning how to stay organized and work on goals.

Other programs claim to help with gaming overuse, but you risk mixing your child in with drugs, alcohol, bullying and violence issues.  Also, because other programs have such a wide focus, the therapy becomes quite diluted.
