Mon-Fri
July 10-14

Campers will develop playground social skills to manage unfriendly situations with boys who are always picking the team, making negative comments or excluding. Build social skills that help boys be connected by knowing how to manage playground sticky situations and how to join groups. The playground is where most adversity and sticky situations happen. Some boys tell others boys they run faster, throw further, and are better at this or that. Some boys pick the team and tell other boys they can’t play or they are on the loser team. This camp will help boys build their tool box of confidence, assertiveness, and strategies of typical situations that happen at recess. Boys will learn how to problem solve to be inclusive, deal with rule changers, and be a good winner and loser. Boys will learn words, tone of voice and how their body language should look. We will play games (everything from tag to foursquare) and role play situations that happen at recess.

Girls Empowered: Inside Out

Mon-Fri
July 24-28

Campers will learn about managing emotions and having social skills to respond appropriately to social and family situations. Emotional regulation is our ability to manage emotions in how we respond to situations. If we do not have the tools in our tool box, our emotional response may cause us to overreact in a negative way that impacts our self-esteem and confidence and in the future lead to depression, eating disorders and negative self-worth. Sometimes when we react emotionally we inflame a situation. We will use the movie Inside Out to teach girls healthy ways to deal with feelings. They will learn how to manage their emotions, whether it is dealing with an unfriendly friend, a Queen Bee, a sibling, family issues or facing a fear they have. Developing our emotional regulation builds confidence in ourselves, helps us respond appropriately to social situations and problems, increases our emotional intelligence and helps us with friendships. Girls will have fun doing Inside Out themed crafts, poster activities and being physically active. Campers should bring a snack and water bottle in a reusable container.

Girls will develop coping skills and strategies for managing stress, worries and daily challenges. Girls are faced with immense pressure to be popular and the best at everything they do from sports to grades. Many girls feel overscheduled, pressured to look a certain way and feel if they don’t measure up they are not good enough. Often girls are dealing with friendships that are hot/cold, lack loyalty and are cliquey. We’ll explore how yoga, meditation and self-care can promote better self-esteem, a greater sense of confidence and emotional balance. This week of camp will include daily yoga and address significant areas of stress for girls. Girls will get the benefits from yoga of strengthening their bodies and relaxing their minds while learning how to be grounded to deal with hot/cold friendships, trying to fit in and the pressure to be popular.
