 After School Program

Monday After School Program
Ten-week afternoon therapeutic groups are designed to provide therapy by specifically targeting individualized goals for our campers. A minimum of one hour includes therapeutic activities that heavily target the development of social skills, emotion regulation, and positive behaviors, while the next hour focuses on further skill development by providing a variety of experiential activities as part of a group to create opportunities to observe the child in a natural setting and intervene to facilitate change. Some quarters provide a special emphasis to improve skills, while other quarters have a more general offering based on the campers' interests and often include programming in areas such as video game making, drama, art, movie making, etc.  The Fall Quarter is a Minecraft group and requires a Java version of Minecraft to participate.  Space is limited in this group.
 
Tuesday Executive Functioning Program
Ten-week executive functioning groups are designed to provide therapy by specifically targeting individualized goals for our campers in the area of executive functioning, often targeting skill development in areas such as focusing, processing, staying on task, discussing school progress, planning and organization.  A minimum of one hour includes therapeutic activities that heavily target the development of skills in these areas through virtual games and team building challenges.

Additional Camp Details Specific to Quest Therapeutic Camps of Southern California

I couldn’t be more excited about what we have launched and what we have already designed for our virtual programs! These will be a mix of the current things that we already offer that I think are most beneficial, plus all the new games we could add/build that lend themselves naturally to this format.  We have also been redesigning groups to fit our campers' current needs with new lessons specifically designed to fit the current climate.  We will be playing with a purpose!  Our campers will be engaging in hands-on, interactive lessons designed for fun, connection and to hone individualized goals and social skills through things like virtual board games and escape rooms that we have hand created specifically for them, They will get to play video games, Legos, build comic strips, do arts and crafts, mindfulness, eat lunch with each other, and do movement challenges, all with clear objectives and structure to meet their needs.
