The PAUSE Challenge – Summer camps is an activity that promotes the balanced use of the Internet and screens to prevent the risks associated with hyperconnectivity. This summer, invite your counselors to meet the proposed challenges with their groups. 

PAUSE wishes to become a movement that encourages Quebecers to retake control of their screen use and prioritize positive connections that feel good, online and off-line. The PAUSE Challenge – Summer camps is a joint project put forward by the Fondation Tremplin Santé the PAUSE initiative.

Why take on the PAUSE Challenge - Summer camps?

To step back and: 

  • become more aware of the place that technology occupies in our daily lives;
  • better understand your relationship with screens; 
  • rediscover the benefits of screen-free times;
  • watch the stars burn that much brighter at night, and not your counselors’ cell phones!

And then reconnect: 

  • in a more mindful, controlled way and not out of habit; 
  • by focusing on online activities that feel good.
