Kids Yoga Day Off Camps
Fun, Enriching, Relaxing Experiences when School is Closed
Breathing Space Kids Yoga Camp offers kids in grades K-4th 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.

When DCPS is closed. We may also be able to accommodate charter school closed days, but we have 12 camper minimum for running camp and need a parent liaison for each school to help us make sure we have sufficient enrollment. Contact us for details.
In previous years, we have offered extended day in partnerships with Labyrinth’s wildly popular Good Moves Games Club. As of August 2021, Labyrinth is unable to commit to offering classes, so aftercare will likely involve playground outings, manipulative toys, games, and freeplay and additional art opportunities, depending on the weather and camper interests.
Children in Kindergarten-4th grades. We are able to accept a limited number of PK4 younger siblings attending with their older sibling. Must be 4 years old by Sept 30.
- $85 per day
- Extended day until 5:45 pm for an additional $25 per day, $30 per day within 14 days of camp.
If your preferred date is full, sign up for the waitlist on the registration page. We cannot respond to email requests for waitlist additions. Please do not enroll in aftercare for any dates your camper is waitlisted. If you are offered a spot in camp, you will also be offered a spot in aftercare.
Full vaccination required for all campers 5 years and older beginning with the January 26, 2022 camp. Staff are fully vaccinated and boosted upon eligibility. Breathing Space follows DC government public health guidance. A well-fitting mask is required for all campers and staff indoors. Masks are optional outside. Campers are encouraged to space themselves at least two arms length from other campers throughout the day. If you prefer your child remain masked at all times, please communicate this on the day of camp and will do our best to enforce that. We eat out of doors whenever possible and space campers by family group more than 6 feet apart when eating indoors. See more about COVID precautions.
Please Register Early
We have a minimum registration of 12 campers two weeks in advance to hold camp; minimum 6 campers to hold aftercare. 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.
Registration is open! Please make sure to fully read over our camp procedures and refund policies before signing up.
