Many camps are cancelled, including ours. That doesn't mean we can't offer programming options to families and children. It just means that normal camp, running for several weeks at a time with larger camper numbers cannot happen for our small business this summer. Don't worry, we'll be back next year in some form or another with a better plan to support the community.
We won't, however, be sitting back and twiddling our thumbs wishing we were rockin' out at camp. We are proud to announce that we will be providing parents with the opportunity to receive some reprieve, and a well-deserved back seat to "being in charge." We will educate parents, giving them helpful tools to use in and out of the home, to promote healthy living. Digital parent & kid-friendly handouts will be provided when registering for multiple Family Wellness Day's. Parents will be guided to foster their child's skills in self-regulation through mindfulness & sensory-based play that is essential for healthy child development.
Our COVID response to summer camp is to call on all Madison families who have found peace in narrowing their kids contact circles with other like-minded friends and family members. Do you let your kids play with a few others in your neighborhood? Do you have friends with similar aged kids who you get together with? Do your kids play with their siblings or cousins? Whoever the group is - if you're already meeting, let's gather! In unity, we will learn about mindfulness and nature connection, play games, have load of fun and spend meaningful time together enhancing the family's well-being.
After a few sessions of getting to know your group, we may give you the option to drop off your kids without you. We'll learn each family's comfort level with COVID, your goals of being in the program and the whole group will get on the same page regarding a customized safety plan tailored to you. Once we are all at a good place, kids may be offered to attend on their own. Parents will get to benefit from time a part while their kids get to be kids again - developing holistically in a safe environment. This win-win-win will benefit the entire family unit.
Hi, Moira here. When I'm not playing with my dogs, listening to music, enjoying nature or being with my friends/family, I'm probably writing. Read these blogs for wellness opportunities we offer at Hike & Heal, ones I know that are awesome or just some tidbits about living a healthier life.
