This is the first camp of its kind. Palomar Christian Conference Center and Real Battle Ministries has partnered this summer, to give parents and teens the tools needed to survive the digital age and become the Christian leaders of tomorrow! At Camp Unplugged, the entire family benefits and is included. Parents receive 6 educational webinars by science experts and thought leaders, to view at home while your student is at camp having fun! This 4-week program enables young people to unplug from technology, enjoy nature, and learn the effects technology has on their brain. Tech fasts ignite creativity and personal connection. Camp classes will build leadership skills while enjoying adventures in nature, education, and community service. Your teen will participate in restorative community service to Palomar Mountain State Park and local Native American communities that will build their college resume and work experience.
Parents will have the opportunity to learn about technology and how it affects health, behavior, and limits personal God-given potential from 5 top scientists, MDs and tech thought leaders. Upon registration, you will receive a copy of the books “Hooked on Games,” by Dr. Andrew Doan, MD, PhD in Neuroscience Johns Hopkins University. “Glow Kids,” by Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, Ph. D, LCSW-R, “Reset your Child’s Brain,” by Victoria L. Dunkley, MD, ”Virtual Child” by Cris A. Rowan, BScOT, BScBi, SIPT Sensory Integration Specialist, and “Seduced- The Grooming of America’s Teenagers” by Opal Singleton, President and CEO of Million Kids. There will also be a tech class that will explain some of the tech apps and tools available that enable parents to monitor tech usage at home.
So, if you, like so many parents have found it impossible to successfully reduce tech time at home, this camp is perfect. Take control of technology without the fights and hassles and help your child and family to thrive before serious problems develop! At Camp Unplugged, they will be so busy having fun, learning life skills, making lifelong friends, and gaining actual work experience to put on a resume! They won’t even miss their phones! Most importantly, you will have peace of mind that you are doing a great service for your son or daughter and you! Give them the gift we all grew up with, a tech-free summer and the opportunity to attain their God-given potential!
