Kids Yoga Day Off Camps

Fun, Enriching, Relaxing Experiences when School is Closed

 

Breathing Space Kids Yoga Camp offers kids ages 4-10 years enriching yoga and mindfulness experiences in a playful, non-competitive environment so they can learn self-regulation and stress management techniques, enhance gross motor skills and fitness, and, most importantly, make friends, relax, and have fun 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.

How much?

  • $80 per day.
  • Add on Good Moves Games Club for an extended day until 5:45 pm for an additional $18 per day.

Where?

Most SY 2018/19 Camps are at Christ Church – 620 G Street SE

Winter Break camp is at St. Marks Church – 301 A Street SE.

Check each camp date registration page and receipt for confirmation. See location notes for details.

Who?

K – 4th grade students with very limited space for PK4 campers.

About PreK: We are able to accommodate a very limited number of PreK 4 campers. While we divide PK4 out for enrollment purposes, they participate in the same camp as everyone else. Because 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?

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.
