Teen Leadership Academy 

Quest Camp is pleased to offer the Teen Leadership Academy to Quest's high performers and high school students desiring community leadership opportunities. In this program, we select leaders who want opportunities to lead at camp, be a role model, and desire to learn while having fun. Anyone in  the Leadership Academy  is a reflection of our Quest team and must demonstrate a high-level of role model behaviors to secure and maintain their space. Entry into this program is based on staff decision regarding readiness. Teens who have not participated successfully in Quest before must complete an interview and provide references. The cost for this program is the same as regular Quest programming as these teen leaders have the same small ratios as campers to staff and opportunities for enriching programming.

 

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.

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 summer camp!  Our current online school year group and our upcoming summer camp 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 camp to fit our campers' current needs with new lessons specifically designed to fit the current climate.  This summer 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.
