Breathe & Learn Summer Camp 2018!
A Health & Wellness Retreat for Kids
Yoga, Mindfulness, Enrichment & Exploration in Manhattan Beach
The Breathe & Learn Summer Camp was created to inspire and support kids in living a healthy, mindful life. You know those adult health and wellness retreats you dream about? Well, we just created one for your kids. If your child learns to nourish their body and mind with all of this goodness early on, they'll carry it with them on their journey through life (and teach you a few things too!).
Here's a sneak peak...
Mindfulness Meditation Practice - nothing too serious, we make it fun and kid friendly!
Yoga on the Beach - poses, games, relaxation
Fitness Fun - beach games, relay races, scavenger hunts, team building, parachutes
Crafts - mind jars, mandalas, sand art, tie dye, bubble making, painting, model magic
Juicing/Cooking - fruits, veggies and healthy treats
Journaling - wonderings, questions, discoveries and reflections
Reading - library time to read, write and nourish our minds (two teachers to support reading skills too!)
And during all of this, we place a strong focus on developing social-emotional learning skills. As teachers, we know the development of these important life skills often take a back seat to academics during the school year. We believe it is vital to explicitly teach kids about concepts such as self- awareness, self-compassion, empathy and optimistic thinking (to name just a few). At the same time, we understand the importance of equipping kids with the appropriate tools to self-soothe, regulate behavior and nourish friendships.
Summer is the perfect time to learn all of this "in the field". We're not bound to the walls of a classroom, so this means hands-on, real world learning experiences in small groups and partnerships. We'll encourage kids to create, question, discover, wonder and develop a true sense of self. We LOVE this type of work and are excited to use the beach, The Well Fitness Studio and local destinations as our classroom.
