Empowering Kids to Create Healthy Tech Habits

A youth retreat in the Pennsylvania mountains where kids experience adventure, have fun, and learn healthy tech habits.


River Mountain is a digital wellness retreat — we help young people develop a healthier relationship with technology.


Screen time for 10 to 15 year-olds has changed dramatically over the past 10 years. Apps and games use persuasive design to keep kids hooked for as long as possible.

River Mountain's digital wellness retreats, designed in partnership with Penn State University, enable young people to create a healthier relationship with technology and make positive choices with the way they spend their time.

Get outside be a kid! Adventure in nature is our “Reset” button. Nature fosters creativity, and adventure builds self-confidence and strengthens peer-to-peer relatedness.


Physical health. Self image. Focus. Sleep. Through experiential learning, we teach young people about the risks and effects of technology and persuasive design.


Young people leave with the tools to continue building a healthier relationship with technology at home.

There exists within everyone a grand passion, an outlandish thirst for adventure, a desire to live boldly and vividly through the journey of life.



River Mountain inspires adventure, stokes curiosity, and sparks wonder of the natural world. Every aspect of our retreat is designed to create an unforgettable experience within a safe and comfortable environment.
