Date: 08-Aug-2017

Tuesday, August 8 - Friday, August 11

1- 4 pm

$200 - Friends / $220 Non-Members 

Ages 6 - 14

Join Miss Stacey, from Find Your Zen, as you mindfully connect to your inner landscape through exploring the outer landscape of the Gardens. Your child will spend their day observing and learning about the magic living in the Gardens and create art inspired by nature. Yoga will be weaved in throughout the day to move energy, experience joy and reconnect to the present moment.  To end each day, a mindfulness practice will bring everything together, reinforcing how you can find a place of peace in any environment. 

A light snack and supplies for art will be provided. 

Day 1- The Tropical Conservatory:  Learn about plants and animals that grow and live in this tropical habitat.  Campers will make leaf rubbings and explore yoga through replicating poses that tropical animals express every day.  

Day 2 - The Succulent Garden: Learn about succulents and the desert terrain.  Campers will create sand art and learn how to do cactus arms and lizard pose.  

Day 3 - The Edible Garden: Explore edible plants and herbs used for various purposes like cooking.  Campers will plant herbs to take home and explore poses that share the names of fruits, vegetables and other foods.  

Day 4 - The Flower Garden:  Explore the beautiful flowers fond in the Gardens.  Campers will choose their favorite flower to draw and paint.  Through mindfulness practice campers will learn to appreciate the beauty in the present moment and the beauty that surrounds us every day.  

This 4-day youth camp utilizes the beauty and educational value of the Gardens, the tools of yoga and asana and mindfulness practices, to create an environment for education, relaxation and focus.
