Every morning started with a community circle where we sang a welcome song to each other. Every day finished with a creativity experience (this year the children made journals, zentangles, pebble meditation illustrations, and zen gardens in a mint tin). Filling the two and a half hours in between, every day included a different yoga inspired game or activity, yoga sequences, meditation and relaxation, and “spa water du jour” and a healthy snack. Our mornings together were so full and varied, and I could not have offered such a delightful and meaningful week without the help of three volunteers. Three lovely teenagers (Gaby, Emma and Chloe), all past “campers”, graciously offered their help and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. Emma took some of the photos included in the slide show, and conducted an interview of young Caitlyn (found on our Tweens Page - a must see!). In addition, I need to give a public thank you to Noelle. She has attended every yoga camp offered over the past 5 years and is always a willing helper. Of course, a huge thank you to the families who shared their beautiful children for the week. This year we had 11 children participate; 9 girls and 2 boys.
Enjoy the photos shared below. Hopefully, the pictures will help to give a glimpse into the window of our Yoga Camp world. You will have to imagine the giggles. :)
