Mindful Arts & Stories Extension Courses
Rising PK- 4th
Breathing Space camps always feature art projects and lots of stories. This fall, yoga class is offered by live instruction over Zoom and we are offering arts and stories as self-paced courses on the Ruzuku online courses platform.
New lessons will be available on the Monday of each week of the term and can be completed anytime, even months later. There will be an arts & crafts project, a story book for the younger group (with read along video provided) or journaling activity for tweens, a featured yoga pose, and a reflection activity or guided relaxation for each week.
Creative projects related to the week’s theme are taught through recorded video and written instructions and students complete those at their own pace. Parent assistance will likely be needed with set up, but projects are chosen so that 5-12 year old students can complete them mostly independently (exceptions will be noted).
Students are encouraged to upload a photo of their projects to share with staff and other campers. Students can communicate with staff through the course platform.
Students are also encouraged to create a journal for their camp week so they can draw or write their thoughts and reactions from yoga class and extension activities.
Instruction is provided in video and written format.
Once an arts & stories course begins, you can access the projects and videos any time.
Cost $39 per family
Refunds will usually be issued by check mailed to the address on your account profile within 30 days of refund request receipt.
If your refund is dependent on another participant taking your spot in a program and the spot isn’t immediately filled, refunds will be issued within 30 days of the scheduled program start date rather than request receipt.
We sometimes fill cancelled spots, but sometimes don’t. When we hit our refund deadlines, the vast majority of possible participants – even those who put themselves on our waitlists – have made other plans and filling vacant spots can be challenging. At that point we are counting on our registration numbers to cover our costs. If we allowed last minute refunds, we’d have to raise the price of camps and classes for everyone to compensate.
Managing changes to class and camp rosters, waitlists and refunds actually takes up a lot of staff time. While we understand that life isn’t always predictable, we don’t want clients registering to “hold their spot” while they firm up plans. Processing fees discourage this and compensate us for staff time.
We often here from parents that they are hesitant to enroll if they aren’t sure their child will enjoy a class. We get it. That’s why we have our:
No Risk Refund Policy – Not sure if a kids & family series class will be right for you or your child? Register and come to the first class. If you notify us in writing within 48 hours after the first class that you will not be able to continue the session, we refund all but $2o for that first class.
We are also very flexible about switching classes for students who have nap time shifts during the course of a series. For example, if your child is enrolled in an 11 am class and starts napping at that time, we’ll happily switch her into one of our 9 or 9:30 am classes instead.
A common hesitation to signing up for a weekly class is that parents aren’t sure it will be the right fit for their child. We get that. It can be hard to even imagine a toddler or preschooler yoga or sign language class if you’ve never attended one.
That’s why we offer a No Risk Refund Policy – Register and come (or log-in) to the first class. If you notify us in writing within 24 hours of class that you will not be able to continue the session, you will pay only $20 ($15 if online) for the class you attended.
