Why Yoga Camp?

Yoga and mindfulness can help children build self-regulatory skills, resilience, social awareness, and confidence, as well as strength and fitness. Through yoga, children learn techniques for concentrating, reducing stress, and connecting to their bodies in a loving way while having fun.


Breathing Space Kids Yoga Camp takes the lessons we learn in our yoga and mindfulness practice and expand on them to a full week of activities.  Of course we do lots of yoga and yoga games, but that’s not all. 


  • We’ll do arts and crafts or themed activities every day. 
  • We typically do at least one theme-based outing every week.
  • Unless weather is terrible, we’ll walk to a nearby playground for lunch and outdoor time daily.
  • We will have some form of quiet relaxation 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.

Camper Ages and Enrollment

Our camps are intimate compared to many. We cap most weeks at 18 campers and maintain a minimum 6:1 camper:staff ratio. Our campers and counselors get to know each other and make lasting friendships.

Our PreK (PK4) registration accommodates 6-8 campers on weeks open to 4-year-olds. Both groups operate as one camp unless noted.

See FAQs for our age policies, including younger sibling enrollment.

    Age requirements vary by camp and by season. During the school year, grade designations are the grade in which your camper is currently enrolled. During summer, grade designation is the grade in which they will enroll that fall.

    Relaxation at PreK Camp 2013, kidsWe have limited space available for 4 year old (PK4) campers. We love 4 year olds, but they have different needs and abilities than 8 year olds in yoga class or arts and crafts and they require more attention and assistance for things like bathroom visits, managing shoes, following directions, staying with the group on outings, keeping track of and carrying their belongings, etc.

    School Year Camps

    Overall, our day camps are small – 16-20 kids. When we enroll just a few 4 year olds, we find everyone has fun. The older campers and staff are able to help the little ones keep up during activities and outings while still doing the activities that the older campers enjoy. When we enroll lots of 4 year olds, it completely changes the camp dynamic. That’s why we limited the number of 4 year olds – same camp, separate roster – during single-class camps during the school year.

    on location children's yoga classPlease note we do not have a dedicated rest time scheduled during school-day-off camps, so yoga camp is best for non-nappers. Our school year camps are most appropriate for younger siblings (used to tagging along with older kids and being helped by them) or PK campers with Breathing Space experience (so know our routine and we know them).

    Summer Camps

    During the summer, we offer a PK-1st grade camp completely focused on the needs and interests of 3.5-6 year olds. During those weeks, we run with different expectations and on a different schedule, enabling our younger campers to have lots of fun, but also have dedicated afternoon rest time, for example. (Rising PK3 younger siblings are welcome during these camp weeks with prior approval.)

    We also offer a few camps that will be noted as double-class camps when we enroll a full class of PK/K and 1st-4th grade. During those weeks, we will do some activities as a big group, but also lots in our smaller groups. PK/K campers will be offered rest or quiet time activities in the afternoons while 1st-4th campers will do longer outings and themed activities in the afternoons.

    Requirements for 4 year olds

    PK4 campers should have a year of full-time schooling under their belt and be reliably potty trained and bathroom independent. Campers must have the stamina to walk to public transportations and outing destinations while carrying their own backpack/lunch.

    Our camp is not appropriate for students unable to follow basic safety instructions or with a strong tendency to run away from the group or leave a designated area without permission.

    Please respect our age minimum. We recognize that it is challenging to find an enriching camp experience for preschoolers, but need to be sure we are offering a quality experience for all our campers. The needs of a 3-year-old – attention-span, interests, verbal abilities, physical coordination, stamina – are very different for that of a 7-, 8-, or 9-year-old. A 3-year-old needs more assistance with nearly all tasks and is unlikely to be able to do – or be interested in – the same craft projects as older campers, pay attention to the same stories, or follow the same game rules . . . .  Our only exception is 3-year-old younger siblings and we require pre-approval before enrollment. Thank you.

    Younger Siblings: We do take a very limited number of younger siblings, one year younger than the stated age range, so PK4 for camps marked K+ or PK3 for camps marked PK4+.  Pre-approval is required. Contact us if you are interested.
