• Preteens spent five days in a nature camp without access to screens and were compared to controls.
• Both groups took pre- and post-tests regarding nonverbal emotional cues.
• The experimental group’s recognition of cues improved significantly over the control.
• Time away from screen media, with increased social interaction, may improve comprehension of nonverbal emotional cues.
