Girls will learn and practice being assertive in their words, voice, and body language through role-playing and crafts. Girls will learn the do’s and don’ts of friendship and how to work through sticky friendship situations. This camp will help all girls no matter what their confidence level is, including girls who may be too aggressive in how they communicate to those who don’t use their voice at all. Role playing, games, friendship crafts and fitness included.

Kids Empowered Slime Time

Mon-Fri, 12:30-3:30pm
Aug 10-14
 
At Kids Empowered we use slime in lots of fun ways to teach social skills and emotional management. One way we use slime is that it represents sticky situations kids face on the playground, in the classroom and at home. Kids will learn how to recognize they are in a sticky situation and learn strategies to respond to unfriendly classmates, friend comments and actions, sibling conflict and everyday challenges. One day, kids will make different colors of slimes that represent their emotions and learn ways to manage them. Each day the kids will make slime to represent different lessons. There will be a lot of games, fun and role playing to handle sticky situations in this camp. Campers should bring a snack and a water bottle.
