Dancing Jaguar's Spirit Camp

Apr 28, 2017 09:29AM
Dancing Jaguar's Spirit Camp is a fun, five-day program that empowers children to tune into their inner worlds. Humans are made up of mind, body and spirit, yet in our society, children's minds and bodies are nurtured, and their spirits are often neglected.  This summer camp, designed for children ages 5 to 10, assists children to connect to their spirit—that wonderful essence that makes each child a unique, beautiful individual. The camp will be offered daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 10 to 14, in Arlington.

The curriculum includes mindfulness, yoga, the Law of Attraction, an attitude of gratitude, working with chakras, auras, affirmations, shamanic journeying, power animals and many other topics. Every module is introduced using crafts, games, songs and stories.

This empowering program has been known to change family dynamics in a profound way. Children learn how to regulate their moods and develop the necessary tools to become responsible for meeting their own needs. Prior to Spirit Camp, if a child is in a bad mood, he might be in that bad mood, spinning his wheels and creating a disruptive environment for those around him. After Spirit Camp, when this same child is in a bad mood, he has the tools necessary to regulate his emotions and shift them back into a more peaceful, happier place. Other benefits of attending this camp include smoother bedtimes and better ability to deal with death, dying and illness, as well as having effective tools for dealing with anxieties, worries and fears.

Spirit Campers have a fun-filled week while learning important self-nurturing techniques that will set them up for success as they grow.

Cost: $325 (with sibling discount available). Location: Universalist Unitarian Church of Arlington, 4444 Arlington Blvd. For more information, email [email protected] or visit
