This year District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) has a mid-winter break; February 18-22, 2019. Don’t fret if you didn’t plan to take that exotic vacation or have time to take off work that week. There are a variety of camps you can sign your child up for.
Breathing Space Kids Yoga Camp offers kids ages 4-10 years enriching yoga and mindfulness experiences in a playful, non-competitive environment so they can learn self-regulation and stress management techniques, enhance gross motor skills and fitness, and, most importantly, make friends, relax, and have fun on DCPS days off.
Kids will do yoga movement classes, mindfulness activities, relaxation, games, crafts and outdoor time, while offering a non-competitive and supportive environment where kids can learn to learn to work cooperatively as well as learn to care for and nurture themselves.
