The Bay Area and Mindfulness Center is excited to offer a mindfulness camp for kids. This 5-day camp will provide your child with a wealth of tools they will be invaluable for their whole lives, taught in a fun, interactive and playful environment. It will include of a combination of guided age-appropriate meditation, interactive and fun mindful activities, as well as a variety of mindfulness lessons, and art projects that will have practical application to their everyday lives.
We (as parents) often tell kids to “relax and calm down,” but we don’t teach them how. We tell them to “focus and pay attention,” but we don’t teach them how. We say, “just don’t worry – you’re fine,” but we don’t teach them how not to worry. Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to aid in emotional regulation, present moment awareness, decreasing stress, anxiety or depression, increasing focus and attention, and much more! Kids today experience so many stressors from peer and academic pressures, social media, and family dynamics, in addition to any organic personal challenges that they may face. If your child experiences any difficulty in naming or expressing their emotions, trouble in maintaining focus or attention, is easily distractable, or is quick to outburst, then this camp would be a great fit for them. Space is limited to 8 kids.
This camp is suitable for kids aged 7-12.
