Teen Leadership Academy 

Quest Camp is pleased to offer the Teen Leadership Academy to Quest "graduates" 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 wearing a Quest shirt is a reflection of our Quest team and must demonstrate a high-level of role model behaviors to secure and maintain a space in the Leadership Academy. 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.

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

To compliment the Quest Therapeutic Model, Quest campers receive occupational therapy services by participating in a weekly group facilitated by an occupational therapist in addition to participating daily in a sensory diet specifically designed for our campers in our summer program. An education component about the importance of good health through appropriate exercise and nutrition is also included into programming. Quest is a soda and candy free zone in which campers earn extra rewards for making good nutritional choices. Also a nutritionist has provided consultation to assist with planning healthy snacks for campers.

Sports such as basketball, volleyball, rock climbing and soccer, games, arts & crafts, activities, free play, singing and “Fabulous Fridays” entertain while providing learning experiences at camp. Field trips include Boomers, Bowling, Rockin' Jump Trampoline Park, Discovery Science Center, and beach days. Camp culminates in a 3 night/4 day residential week in Julian.
