The Digitox School Camps Program: 
Nurturing Digital Well-being in Education 

What is The Digitox School Camps Program?

In the face of growing concerns about the mental and emotional well-being of young people, The Digitox School Camps Program emerges as an innovative solution for high school students, educators, and parents who are embarking on a school camp.

This program is meticulously crafted to address the challenges posed by the digital age, such as diminished attention spans and disruptive behaviour among students.

The Essence of School Camps:
 School camps are treasured experiences that often leave lasting impressions on students. Set amidst nature, these camps are the ideal backdrop for the essential digital detox, providing a respite for students' nervous systems and fostering genuine social connections.

The Collaborative Approach: 
The Digitox School Camps Program is a collective endeavour that imparts necessary education, skill development, and support. It's a journey where educators and parents unite to steer children towards a harmonious relationship with technology, thereby enhancing their academic performance and overall well-being.

Benefits for Kids:
Empowerment through awareness of the digital detox process.
Sustained support from family and school to establish healthy screen habits.
Enhanced understanding of technology's impact on their brain and well-being.

 Benefits for Parents:
Access to educational webinars that delve into the effects of screen time.
Strategies to establish effective screen boundaries within the home.
Support within a community group to reinforce these new practices.

Benefits for Schools & Teachers:
Knowledge to identify and address digital detox symptoms for when kids are on camp.
Tools to educate students on the physiological changes during detox & how to manage them.
Welcoming back students who are more focused, sociable, and easier to teach.

The Three-Part Program: 

Pre-Camp Preparation: Teachers receive guidance to support students, while kids and parents are educated about the impacts of screen time. As kids are naturally going on a digital detox whilst  school camp, we share with camp facilitators the common signs of device withdrawal that kids may experience as a result of not having their phones or computers or other devices for the duration of the camp.This can support the facilitators to support the kids through any withdrawal symptoms they may have.
Mid-Camp Engagement: Parents organize tech times and are trained in creating a tech-positive home environment whilst the kids are away.
 Post-Camp Integration: Upon return, students and parents work together to maintain the beneficial practices initiated during the camp. As kids nervous systems have had a break form the screen ( digital devices) they are much better abled to see from a broader perspective the impact of screens and therefore able to work with parents and teachers to maintain their health around screen time.

Why The Digitox School Camps Program?
The Digitox School Camps Program is more than a break from screens; it's an educational initiative that empowers students and families to understand and manage technology's role in their lives. It fosters informed decisions and supports teachers by providing clear-minded, enthusiastic students ready to learn.
