In an age where all things digital rule out lives… We. Are. Obsessed.
We’re the guilty ones who wear our phones as an extension of our hand. We find ourselves constantly plugged into a smart device at all times. Our phone is the first thing we look at when we wake up and the last thing we use before bed. And we can’t seem to stop during the times in between.
Just like everyone takes a vacation from work, it can also be healthy to take a break from technology every once in a while. That means work emails, selfies, social media, everything. And we’re even saying this as a digitally-based company.
Everyone deserves a digital detox, and we’re here to tell you some of the coolest places to unplug and recharge. (Get it?)
So long, Facebook. Buh-bye, Insta. Tweet ya later, Twitter.
If places like these exist in the world, we should all take tech breaks to enjoy them. Often.
The Digital Detox company sponsors an adults-only camp where grown ups trade in their computers and cell phones for traditional summer camp activities like arts & crafts, yoga, capture the flag, and kickball.

A serene lake and mountainous skyline is the perfect combination for a detox vacation.
