Mindful : April 2014
Summer Camps With a Twist Now summer camp can mean more than hiking, swimming, and s’mores. How about yoga, meditation, improving communication skills? Check these out: Teen Camp Omega This year is Omega Institute’s 12th camping season in Holmes, New York, 90 minutes north of New York City. The camp runs from July 13 to Aug. 16, with most teenagers coming for a two-week session. The staff includes 15 yoga and meditation teachers. Tools for Peace The 9th annual Tools for Peace summer teen camp takes place July 27 to Aug. 2 on 475 acres in Tehachapi, California, outside Los Angeles. The camp accepts 30 applicants each year, who get to work with 10 trained facilitators, artists, and athletes. A Stop, Breathe & Think workshop teaches campers mindful techniques to cultivate compassion and become better communicators. Ivy Child The nonprofit organization Ivy Child runs a summer camp at the Boys & Girls Club in Worcester, Massachusetts, which has the capacity for 100 children per week- long session in June and August. Before every program, organizers assess needs to determine what best suits the kids who have enrolled. Mindfulness is taught through yoga, meditation, music, and art. Olympia Sports Camp This sports-oriented camp for children age 9 through 18 is located in the Mus- kokas, north of Toronto. Weeklong camps run from June 29 to Aug. 30. There are boys-only, girls-only, or co-ed camps. Olympia has partnered with Mindfulness Without Borders to offer a program that teaches simple breathing and body- awareness exercises to help kids reduce impulsivity and stress. ● TURN OFF YOUR PHONE. Take a walk. Don’t have a destination. Don’t look at the ground. Turn around when you start to get tired.

Life is a mixture of pleasant and unpleasant experiences. It’s only when we’re able to accept this that we can be present for each moment, even if it’s unpleasant, without being lost in fantasies and desires for it to be different.” Toni Bernhard, author of How to Wake Up April 2014 mindful 15
