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 the interview of young Caitlyn ( a must see!) linked below. 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. :)
