Unplugging Our Kids: Watch, ACA Board Executive, Steve Baskin explain why kids need camp more than ever to find success in the 21st century.


“The hours an average teenager in America spends in a week looking at an electronic  screen (either phone, a game system or TV) is 53 hours;  11 of which is spent texting alone. I believe a fulfilling life starts with interpersonal face-to-face connections. And these interpersonal face-to-face connections require a series of face-to-face skills: empathy, the ability to read other people, body language, intonation. And these skills, like all skills, require practice.” – Steve Baskin
