Quest Therapeutic Camps of Southern California provides summer day camp services and after-school programs specifically designed to help kids with learning differences find success.
We welcome kids with ADHD, ADD, Asperger’s and high-functioning Autism, social anxiety, learning disabilities, depression and more.
Quest’s Therapeutic Model was found to substantially reduce inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, and aggression.
Interventions also showed gains in peer and family relationships, as well as competence in athletics and behavioral control.
What We Do
Quest Camps, located in Orange County, CA, offers an innovative, evidence-based therapeutic program that has been found to reduce problems not only at camp but at home, school and in everyday life for children 6 to 18 years old with mild to moderate social, emotional and/or behavioral difficulties.
We are a Special Needs Camp that provides treatment for a variety of difficulties that children have including ADHD, anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, learning disabilities and high functioning autism (previously Asperger’s Disorder).
Children who have severe aggressiveness, serious psychological problems, behavioral disorders or severe family problems are not appropriate for the program.

"All three of my girls have their own unique social issues. I observed teamwork, communication, understanding, patience, and friendship. This process has not only helped my daughters to become better communicators, but also to learn tolerance and understanding for others. They love the rock climbing, have become quite proficient at it, and remain excited about climbing as an athletic form of therapy in its own right."
Happy Camper Dad
