School Day-off Kids Yoga Camps

Join us on DCPS Professional Development, Parent-Teacher Conference Day

Camp collageOur camps provide students from PreK-4th grade with a fun, creative, educational and enriching experience on DCPS days off for professional development or parent-teacher conferences. We’ll do yoga movement classes, mindfulness activities, relaxation, games, crafts and outdoor time.

We offer a non-competitive and supportive environment where kids can learn to learn to work cooperatively as well as learn to care for and nurture themselves.

About PreK: We are able to accommodate a limited number of PreK 4 campers. Because PK4 campers participate in all the same activities as K-4th campers and we have no scheduled nap during our school year camps, yoga camp is most appropriate for non nappers who are:

  • 4 years old with Breathing Space experience or
  • new to Breathing Space PreK and have turned 5.

All campers must be bathroom independent, outgrown any tendency to run away from a group, and able to walk several blocks carrying their own backpack containing their lunch and water bottle.

Please note that PK4 students must enroll in the PreK group for the entire school year. They do not change classes when they turn 5. Thank you.

Junior Counselors: 5th-8th graders are invited to participate and develop leadership skills as well: apply to be Junior Counselors.

When?

We are in the process of posting SY 2018/19 Camps. Not all dates are live, but are expected to be so by the end of the week.

Generally, multi-day camps will be opened to single day enrollment as space allows one month before each camp date. Camps with insufficient enrollment 14 days in advance may be cancelled.

Cancelation Policy: Register Early

We have a minimum registration of 10 campers two weeks in advance to hold camp; minimum 6 campers to hold games club. We finalize staffing two weeks in advance based on expected enrollment. After that, we may not be able to accommodate late registration due to our student:staff ratio policy.

Within two weeks of camp, we only cancel for extraordinary circumstances.

*Schedule Notes and Charter School Days Off*

We are not scheduling any camps for DCPS closed days in May or June 2019 at this time. Once all snow make-up days are scheduled for the year, we will consider staffing and location availability for camp.

We are happy to explore offering camp for charter school administrative days. In order to set up a date for an individual school, we need a parent liaison to take responsibility for helping us fill the camp, by circulating flyers and listserv announcements at the school and generally spreading the word. Camps have a minimum of 12 enrolled to run. Contact us for details.
