Why choose our camp?
Here’s what former camp parents have to say:
“One of the few camps that my son didn’t find an excuse to ‘not go’ at least once. He went on a few other camps and this is the only one he came away from feeling connected to everyone. The connection, the lessons taught, and the fun atmosphere are something all kids should get the chance to experience.”
- Sara K., Yogi Squad Parent
“He will reference your teaching randomly, throughout everyday life (unprompted). That tells me that it really ‘clicked’ and is a resource he can reference again and again as he moves through life. So encouraging! Will definitely be back next year.”
- Heather L, Yogi Squad Parent
“My son who is 5 has learned so much from her. He struggles (as lots of kids do!) with his emotions sometimes. A common technique we use is to sit and take 3 deep breaths when we need to calm ourselves. Well, the other day, as I prepared to do some breaths with him, he calmly said ‘it’s ok mom, I’ve got this’ and sat in the lotus pose with fingers touching and eyes shut. Y’all, game changer. Get your kids some yoga time with Brooke!
- Sarah L., Yogi Squad Parent
More About Camp Yogi Squad:
An early introduction to yoga can teach students to develop their minds for better focus, allow them to maintain their youthful flexibility, and teach them tools that are useful on and off the mat for making positive, empowering choices. Yoga can help release tension, promote confidence, and increase self-esteem and self-awareness. Through the creative incorporation of carefully selected children’s stories, books come to life with the movement of yoga. Students benefit through the development of positive associations with books, reading, and physical activity.
Each day of the camp, we will engage with social and mindfulness themes through story, movement, and mindful crafts. Every day includes:
- Storytime that develops social and literacy skills
- Mindfulness tools to help your child focus and express feelings
- Yoga poses to encourage movement and exploration
- Crafts to understand and embody our themes through creativity
