Kids Yoga Summer Camps - Washington DC - Breathing Space

COVID19 Situation Update: In response to public health guidelines, we have cancelled all in-person camps for Summer 2020.  We will continue to monitor the situation.  If it becomes safe to gather in person later this summer, we may explore outdoor-only camp options.  In the meantime, Breathing Space virtual summer camps begin June 8. Given the situation, we have updated our refund policies

Why Yoga Camp?

Breathing Space summer camp provides children with a fun, creative, educational, and enriching experience through yoga movement classes, mindfulness activities, relaxation, games, crafts, field trips and outdoor time.  Each week-long camp is sure to create lasting memories, new friendships, and a foundation for health and well-being!

Yoga and mindfulness can help children build self-regulatory skills, resilience, social awareness, and confidence, as well as gross-motor skills, 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.

Camp Location & Hours

Summer 2020 camps are at Christ Church, 620 G Street SE in the parish hall.

Campers not staying for games should be picked up between 3:45-4 pm so we can start snack promptly at 4 pm. Thanks.

Camp Dates & Grade Ranges

Our camps are intimate compared to many. We cap most weeks at 16 or 18 campers and maintain a minimum 6:1 camper:staff ratio. Our campers and counselors get to know each other and make lasting friendships.

On weeks open to rising PK4, that registration group accommodates 6-8 PK campers. PK campers spend the day with K and 1st grade campers, unless noted.

During several August weeks, camp will have two groups. During those weeks the two different groups will have some combined activities and outings and others just for their age group. Generally yoga class and craft activities will be separate.

With pre-approval, we also allow a very limited number of rising PK4 younger siblings who have experience with Breathing Space classes to attend weeks open to K-4th graders. See FAQs for our age policies, including younger sibling enrollment. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate rising PK3 students.

Rising 5th-8th graders are invited to apply to be a counselor in training. CITs are campers enrolled at half price who participate in all activities and help counselors prepare activities and manage younger campers. Learn more.

All summer camp grade ranges refer to Fall 2020 grades.

Waitlists: Watilist registration opens automatically when camp fills and may not be reflected in the table above.

Please DO NOT enroll in aftercare if you do not have a confirmed spot in that week.

We are not able to predict waitlist movement. Sometimes, we have no changes at all while other times, we have several families change plans. Late in the season, we may contact families many deep into the waitlist before we find someone who still needs camp. If you are interested in being contacted with availability, please sign up for the appropriate waitlists.
