"A camp to cultivate connection, compassion, kindness and acceptance through learning how to care for all facets of ourselves including mind, body, and spirit.   Fulfillment begins with honoring who you are as a person and nurturing yourself so that you can make a positive impact on the world around you.   Learning how to care for all facets of ourselves is vital and should start in childhood!"  by Lisa Haverly 

This class will intermix a yoga experience with learning tools to support sensory processing and self regulation.  This camp will incorporate meditation, mindfulness, healthy eating tips, breathing techniques, and other sensory tools to support increased self awareness and to support a calm but alert body, mind, and spirit.  This camp will also have interactions with animals!  We are hoping to have a therapy dog and horse join us.  This class would be supportive of children who may be experiencing anxiety, hyperactivity, sensory sensitivity, self regulation challenges and/or low self esteem.  It would also be supportive of children who have experienced trauma and need a safe space in which to connect.   All staff have experience with or have received some training on supporting children who have experienced trauma.  A sensitive child may feel deeply, respond to the world around them in a more intense way, require more down time or intense moving time, require more observation time before joining, be more sensitive to textures or sounds, and may need more compassion and understanding.  This camp honors the emotionally sensitive child while offering insight into how to be who they are using tools and strategies!  Campers will engage in hands on meaningful activities to support self expression and self regulation as well as utilizing natural materials to create.   Staff encourage campers to find their voice to express kindness toward themselves and others.  Engaging in meaningful activities invites connection to not only oneself but other campers and nature.  In past summers, campers have engaged in naturally dyeing cotton, sewing weighted lap pads, creating essential oil wool geodes, painting worry stones, woodburning, and imprinting leather bracelets.  Come enjoy a beautiful experience! Each child will be expected to function in a group independently. Weather permitting, all classes will be outdoors!  This class would a wonderful support as children transition back to the school environment.  We so believe that this camp is vital for this new generation of children growing up.  They need tools to manage stress and to find productive meaningful outlets to bring joy and calm.

This camp will be similar in scope to the Self Care Yoga Camp that was offered in the Summer but more ongoing support and opportunity to practice mind, body, spirit tools.   Campers will engage in a variety of activities with a focus on learning how to support self regulation using a mind, body, spirit approach.  Self regulation is the ability to monitor and control emotions, behaviors and thoughts to meet the day to day demands of daily living.    This camp is open to any child as all children require coping skills to manage stress but will discuss how to use tools to support focus and attention, manage sensory overload, manage intense emotions and believe that they have the power to support themselves.   This will also be a time to practice social interactions where campers will  work on how to give a compliment and show kindness, reading body language of others and how to interact with others positively.  Occupational and Speech Therapists will support this camp.
