Seminar:  Seduced:  The Grooming of America’s Teenagers


Instructor:  Opal Singleton


Description: This seminar may be our most important.  It equips your student with the knowledge they need to protect themselves from internet predators. Real cases are used to illustrate how predators use social media and online gaming to access, groom, recruit, and exploit teenagers into sex trafficking, sextortion and exploitation. This is all done in a Christian manner and allows students to ask questions about what to be aware of when using social media.  Upon registration, you will receive Opal Singleton’s book: “Seduced: The Grooming of America’s Teenagers.”

Student Seminars:  All student seminars will be taught by Christian instructors who are experts in their field and who have dedicated their lives to diligently serve God and help students reach their God given potential and calling for their lives..

Camp Unplugged Seminars and Webinars

Student Curriculum: Digital Vortex Survival Guide: Behaviors, Digital Media, and the Brain

Authors: Julie Doan, RN, and Christie Walsh


Students will be taught that the neuroscience of the brain is affected by what we do, think, see, hear, and experience. Our goal is to equip teens and families with knowledge so that they can thrive in the digital age and escape being sucked into a digital vortex.  Each of the twelve, 3 page lessons will be read, discussed and applied to the students' own perception of their daily lives and relationship with God. Topics include: God is in science, brain development, brain pruning, the reward cycle, fight or flight response, and more.  Our brains and body are miraculously made.  When a student learns about their own brain development they realize their behaviors matter!  

Seminar:  Digital Vortex Survival Guide:  Behaviors, Digital Media, and the Brain.


Instructors: Julie Doan and Christie Walsh


Description: In this 6-part series, the students will correlate Biblical principles with healthy brain function. We will then apply it to digital media use and analyze how too much screen time limits the brain’s ability to properly function.  This interactive class will enable students to realize that there is a limited time to learn the skills they need for reaching their God-given potential.

Parent Webinars(links will be emailed to you)

​Camp Unplugged is not just for your student’s education, it’s for the parents too! We will equip you with the most up to date knowledge necessary to survive the digital age and protect your family!  Like no other camp, we offer web seminars taught by leading experts about the effect that digital media has on the brain, behavior, emotions, safety, and our Christian faith. The internet enables constant access to education, communication, and entertainment.  It also enables unwanted access to bullying, over-stimulation, health problems, addiction, promiscuity, child abduction, sex trafficking, pornography, and more in the sanctity of your home.  There is no stopping it completely.  Parent webinars will include adult topics while the students will be taught age appropriate science and safeguards for healthy tech use.  We are not anti-tech use.  We are about healthy tech use so that you control tech before it controls you! Additionally, we will educate the students about health, nutrition, leadership, and how they all affect our ability to pursue God’s plan for our life. Upon registration, you will be mailed a copy of the leaders' books.
