Mindfulness Camp- Ages 7-12
Want a fun and different camp experience for your child this summer? Mindfulness camp is back! This program is designed for students ages 7-12 (students entering grades 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 in the Fall of 2022) as an introduction to this form of calming relaxation. The students will start and end each day with a short guided meditation just for kids. Other activities include making glitter jars, learning easy and basic stretches and yoga, specialized relaxation coloring, books about mindfulness, making vision boards, learning about positive affirmations, breathing techniques, self-care skills, arts-n-craft projects, gratitude activities, nature walks, journal writing, and more. We learn about fun and easy ways to incorporate mindfulness into daily life. All participants will be making a journal during the week they can take home on the final day with all the information and strategies to help them carry over skills. Students can bring water, a snack, and a beach towel. All other materials will be provided.
