"Digital You" is specifically designed for girls aged 9-13, with the core value of discipline addressed. Media information has grown exponentially over the past years. Kids live in a world saturated with values, information, messages, behaviors and emotions that are contrived through media. Our objectives are to expand a child's personal awareness and broaden the understanding of how technology has shaped unhealthy beliefs, ideas, and values. Retreaters will identify how they use technology, how it impacts their life, those around them, and if it changes how they see their world?
