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 PreK 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.

Please create an account in the parent/guardian name, then add your child as a family member and assign registration to the child.

At this time, we have only scheduled DCPS administrative days and a few federal holidays and charter school days off.

We are happy to explore offering camp for other 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. Contact us for details.

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.
