Full-day (9am-3pm) camp weeks for kids ages 6-12
At Circle Yoga Summer Camp, kids are encouraged to connect to their bodies, their minds, their creativity, and their camp friends. This is a camp where kids can be kids—free from competition and pressure. Through yoga and mindfulness-based activities, campers have fun and they learn skills for reducing stress, fully accepting and valuing who they are, and respecting others. We'll create a strong sense of community by encouraging cooperation and compassion, as we make new friends and greet old camp friends.

Yoga and meditation are on the agenda at mindfulness-focused summer camps

...If mindfulness-oriented camps are gradually becoming more mainstream, Circle Yoga’s Summer Camp was ahead of the trend. The program has been offered for more than 15 years... “Many kids come back for several weeks each summer and return year after year,” instructor Linda Feldman says.
Kids kick off the day coloring mandalas, then sing mindfulness-themed camp songs so popular with families that the studio turned them into a CD. They do a playful yoga session, with moves like “yoga freeze dance,” plus breathing exercises, guided meditation and a foot massage. They have snacks in a Zen garden and free playtime in a local playground, and they spend time silent journaling. “You’d be amazed how they do this for 20 minutes — they love it,” Feldman says. “It gives kids the permission to just find some stillness, ease, creativity and joy.” More
