Drawing from yoga, mindfulness meditation and art techniques (drawing, painting, print-making and collage etc.), Fernwood’s Summer Camp invites children to restore themselves in Nature. Each day we’ll immerse ourselves in ecological learning (reading the forest and weather patterns or studying bird alarms and animal tracks), build focused attention skills (journaling from our sit spots, creating nature mandalas) and have the chance to practice mindfulness and soothe anxious or overstimulated nervous systems with friends (story-yoga, breath-work, constructive rest) in a beautiful natural retreat setting. This year we have added an art component with Art Educator Lisa Van Plew-Cid where campers can draw from their memories, feelings, imaginations and observations as they explore their creativity.

Admission: $225
