Empowerment Camps for Girls THIS SUMMER!

Therapeutic camp played a fundamental part in Ms. Bri’s youth & development – let alone her professional plight. Research repeatedly supports that camps build skills necessary to prepare youth to assume roles as successful adults. Parents, campers & camp staff independently report growth in areas including self-confidence, independence, social connectedness, and curiosity for new hobby &/or skill development – following camp participation. Each summer – and throughout the year – Ms. Bri remains attuned to the generalized needs & interests of the families with whom she works; & the community at large. Mindful Milestones in collaboration with Mindcrafters, LLC & Millstones in the Making, INC is proud to offer the following therapeutic camp during the summer of 2017:

  • Empowerment Camps for Girls will premiere with two, age-specific sessions this summer. Through the use of yoga-based activities, self-discovery, community outreach, dynamic group discussion, and relaxation exercises, participants will be encouraged along a therapeutic path to empowerment & resilience. Camp activities will stem from three conceptual categories identified ‘need’: individual (coping skills), interpersonal (relational skills), & community (cultural issues). As needs are identified, so too will strengths and supports. Before investing in this vision, you are encouraged to explore Ms. Bri’s website &/or FaceBook page; speak with your pediatrician &/or trusted community members about her reputation; or arrange for a 15 minute meet & greet. Ms. Bri’s overarching intention for this camp? To empower campers in living a more present, engaged, joyful life.
