Quest Therapeutic Camps were founded to provide mental health treatment to children and adolescents with mild to moderate emotional and social problems including ADHD, autism, anxiety, self esteem and social problems.
     Founded in 1989, research has found that Quest has "a strong treatment effect at reducing global impairments". Using individualized goals within a summer camp experience, children have fun and feel safe to learn from counselors and therapists. While enjoying summer camp activities, staff observe where children struggle and teach emotional and social skills to improve success, self esteem and functioning outside of camp.
     Thousands of children have attended Quest but since we are not a non-profit, we are unable to provide deductions for donations to a scholarship fund. This fund would provide scholarships for those families, based on income, to be able to send their child for treatment. We will discount fees for this scholarship by 20% to provide our share.
     Those of us who work with these children has amazing pleasure in watching children learn, laugh and build friendships. It would be our joy to extend our program to other families in our areas.       Our summer program runs 6/12-7/28 in Danville and Huntington Beach, CA and 6/19-8/4 at our Pittsburgh, Pa. program. All therapy staff are licensed mental health professionals trained in the Quest therapeutic techniques. Please join Quest in the efforts to have all children in need attend.
