I am looking for summer camps for my DS. I need something Tech Free, full of exciting activities and hopefully that will improve positive behaviour (teenagers!!).

I am happy to consider UK, Europe or US

I'd love to hear positive personal experiences of camps

thank you.

Teen ranch Scotland. Christian camp, so positive for me, but depends on your values, not totally tech free but only allowed phones for 30 minutes each day and reception is rubbish anyway.

You could look at

I have my daughter booked in For the first time this summer so no first hand experience (yet)

thanks. Ive looked at PGL and was wanting something more unique.
Its going to be hard to get him to go along so it needs to be quite adventurous

Teen ranch looks good I am not sure how he would go with the singing etc though.

There's a few other companies other than pgl it all depends what they like. The US ones are far more established but may not coincide with British school hols as school is out in late May or June there returning in August

Have you looked at Wilderness Therapy Scotland , looks amazing, I’m trying to find out more info about it here, so jump in 🙂. Having real trouble with my DS, heartbreaking seeing him so unhappy and not know img what to do to help ☹️

that does look amazing! the cost is a little steep but it might be perfect for those who need it.
