“Summerland” is the first residential treatment program designed for the treatment of videogame and screen addiction in children and adolescents. Summerland’s behavioral change program was designed in association with leading researchers from universities like Iowa StateNew York University, and UC Santa Barbara.

Campers participate in cognitive behavioral therapy sessions and a comprehensive after-care program with Summerland behavioral coaches in order to effect change from within. Parents attend educational sessions to be prepared to continue the work at home. All this occurs in a fun summer camp environment on a college campus where campers get to rock climb, surf, ride a zip line, go whitewater rafting, learn to cook and be successful without technology.

Summerland campers range from age 11-18 and come to Summerland North Carolina and Summerland California from all across the U.S. In total, approximately 150 campers will attend Summerland this first summer. Summerland has been featured on NPR, and in Forbes and Quartz.

Enrollment for summer 2019 begins in September. For more information, visit or call 800-390-6986.
