Kids Yoga Summer Camp: DC Adventurer – K-3rd Gr

DC is a great place to be a kid. Campers will do several outings this week to explore the community in which we live and many of the fun, fabulous and things to do around our city.

Depending on the optimal timing of outings, we may do our yoga activities in the morning or the afternoon. There will be less emphasis on arts and crafts during this camp week as compared to most.

Campers will get to outings by public transportation or on foot. Campers must be prepared for a decent amount of walking and be able to carry their own backpack containing their lunch and water bottle.

We will do lots of yoga and yoga games, but that’s not all. We’ll do arts and crafts or themed activities every day. Unless weather is terrible, we’ll walk to a nearby playground for lunch and outdoor time. We’ll have quiet time every day for both nappers and non-nappers. We work a lot of free-play time into our camp between organized activities as well.

Sample Camp Day

  • 3:30-4 pm – Freeplay and pickup for campers not staying for games
  • 4 pm – Afternoon snack
  • 4:30 pm – Games Club
  • 5:30-5:45 pm – Pickup

Camp schedule varies depending on activities of the day. Most field trips will be Tuesday-Friday. Occasionally we will need to depart for a trip by 9 or 9:30 am and be gone through lunch, meaning our main yoga class those days will happen in the afternoon. Water play days – typically Yards Park or Canal Park, but sometimes we head out to Kennedy Rec Center or other city spray parks – mean an extended outdoor/lunch time and a shorter, very low key afternoon yoga time.

Camp schedule varies depending on activities of the day and if we have a field trip scheduled. For camps that enroll PK, we may separate younger and older campers for some activities and outings.

School Year Camp Schedule Variations: Field trip outings during the school year are most common in the afternoons and on bad weather days.

Summer or Spring Break Schedule Variations: Occasionally we will need to depart for a camp trip by 9 or 9:30 am and be gone through lunch, meaning our main yoga class those days will happen in the afternoon. Water play days – typically Yards Park or Canal Park – mean an extended outdoor/lunch time and a shorter, very low key afternoon yoga time.
