Mindfulness Camp Programs. There are various camps and summer retreats that teach mindfulness and yoga to kids. Similar to a sports camp, kids attending these special “mindful summer camps” spend their days practicing meditation and yoga. Other camps, both day camps, and sleep-away camps incorporate mindfulness into their daily programs in different ways. When you practice mindfulness daily you rewire the brain to become happier, healthier, and more functional. In the controlled environment of a camp you have the unique opportunity to create lifelong habits to generate this positive restructuring of the brain and, in doing so, create a more positive camp experience.

Bringing mindfulness into our lives helps us reduce our stress, let go of bad habits, and enjoy simple, ordinary moments, like opening a door or crossing a parking lot — the kinds of moments that make up 99% of our lives.

With mindfulness, we practice slowing down, so we don’t feel so rushed all the time. The next time you’re at the playground, try playing “Slow-Fast-Slow.” Whatever your kids are doing — playing in the sand, running through tunnels — have them try to do it slow, then fast, and then slow again.

  • I loved this podcast!!! My children do yoga and meditate they do night time yoga and a cloud meditation. We’ve been doing it just shy of two years I’m always looking for ways to help them be more mindful. Thanks Brett for sharing all that you do and for putting intentional energy towards helping us to spiritually thrive and vibe higher!
