The Pozez JCC is excited to partner with Developmental Support Associates as they take you through a highly interactive social experience that integrates virtual, physical, and sensory components via a psychoeducational adventure. Before each weekly session begins, a package of real treasures and activities is delivered to your door. These tangible materials are woven into the role-play adventure and helps to bring the story to life within your home. Participants become characters in the story, and the decisions they make in collaboration with their peers determine how the story will unfold. The result is fun, fast paced, challenging, family-friendly and person-centered.

Players of SummerQuest enjoy facing challenges with their peers, while the SummerQuest team focuses on promoting personal, social and cognitive growth for each participant through positive energy, emotional support, mindfulness and so much more!

SummerQuest is designed for people who enjoy storytelling, role play, imaginary play, drama and creative expression. This program is great for children who are twice exceptional (2E), have social anxiety, could benefit from positive behavioral interventions, and/or children who love gaming and interactive adventures! Players will need access to a Zoom-capable device.
