Take a look ahead at what is coming this summer to Madison, WI at www.campbegin.com
Join us as Hike & Heal Wellness comes together with Breathe for Change, a nonprofit that hosts the ONLY 200-hour yoga certification specifically designed for educators. As B4C graduates themselves, Beth Kiser & Moira Farrell are thrilled to be able to work with such an amazingly gifted group of people to get this impactful youth camp off and running in its infancy year.
Breathe for Change graduates will be the instructors as well as a few other educators from MMSD that excel in nature education, art therapy and mindfulness.
Every morning adult instructors, middle schoolers and elementary youth will come together for community building through breathing games, adventure education & yoga instruction. The majority of time spent at camp will be in small group learning pods, where age a-likes will grow, explore and create together.
Location is centrally located for ease of access at Glenwood Moravian Community Church. It's within walking distance to Wingra Boats, Glenwood Park & the UW Arboretum. There will be a limit to 20 students per week in each age group in the first year with hopes to expand. A limited number of scholarships will be available through application starting February 1, 2017.
This will serve as a new day camp (Monday - Friday) in the Madison area to help promote self-regulation skills, emotional literacy, social justice & curb nature deficiencies that so many of our youth now have in our technologically driven society. 4K - 2nd graders will become Jedi Masters by the end of their week through focused social-emotional learning curriculum tied to the fad of Start Wars. 3rd, 4th & 5th graders will explore nature through the creative arts, and end with a culminating garden project. 6th, 7th & 8th graders will learn leadership skills for a more successful life and use hip hop poetry to express how they feel about social justice themes brought up during our specially designed adventure education programming.
We need your help getting this off the ground - tell everyone! If you or anyone you know would like to donate to help launch Camp Begin, or sponsor a child, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to initiate the process.
Who is excited?!?!?! Stay tuned for more details!
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.
