  • Background of Quest Therapeutic Camps of Southern California

    Quest Therapeutic Camps of Southern California offer 6 weeks of summer day camps in Huntington Beach for children ages 6 to 18 with mild to moderate difficulties behaviorally, emotionally or socially. Children who participate in Quest programming often have diagnoses of ADHD, anxiety, Asperger's Disorder, depression, learning disabilities and/or social problems. Many campers do not have a diagnosis but still need help developing self-regulation, social skills, and self-esteem. Quest Camps provide individualized behavior plans, group therapy, occupational therapy services, a 6 to 1 camper to staff ratio, parent meetings with home therapeutic goal development, and consistent positive interventions, while engaging in fun activities such as rock climbing, soccer, arts and crafts, and field trips such as high-ropes courses, trips to Knott's Berry Farm, The Discovery Science Center, and beach days. An education component about the importance of good health through appropriate exercise and nutrition is also included into programming. Ten-week rock climbing therapeutic groups are also conducted throughout the school year. We are very proud at Quest to now have evidence-based research that supports what parents and professionals have seen for over twenty years! During the summer of 2008, 155 families participated in an independent research study by Lisa Greenberg to measure the effectiveness of Quest’s therapeutic program. The results demonstrated treatment benefits rarely seen in psychological programs. Quest was found to provide effective individualized treatment for children 6-18 years old with mild to moderate behavioral, emotional and/or social problems. Quest was found to produce significant reductions in: 1) hyperactivity; 2) impulsivity; 3) aggression; 4) inattention Quest was found to significantly improve: 1) peer relations; 2) family relations; 3) athletic competency; 4) behavioral control; 5) self-esteem Behavioral problems were found to decrease not only at camp, but also at home, school and everyday life. Children who come to Quest struggling to make friends, handling frustration and conquering their fears, leave with increased self-esteem and improved peer and family relationships. Their fears and frustrations are reduced and behavioral problems become less influential in their lives. In addition, Quest parents have consistently rated Quest highly. Specifically, rating very high satisfaction with the overall summer program, quality of staff, individualized goals and behavior ratings, campers’ enjoyment, and the ability to keep their child’s interest.
