Children today are growing up in an increasingly complex and fast-changing world, which has tremendous impacts on their physical health, emotional wellbeing, their interaction with others around them and on their ability to maintain attention and focus.
Happy Feet is a custom retreat for children and youth to playfully connect with themselves, and with nature in a protected space which allows them to relax, discover, gain confidence and unravel the various facets of their personalities. The program is for the age group 10-15 years, and will be held on dates of your choice.
Children will experience the joy of moving their bodies, and playfully interacting with friends and nature.
A wide range of activites are available, all aimed at increasing body awareness and joy in movement, boosting creativity and enhancing connection with peers and Mother Nature in a playful way.
Possible workshops include Awareness through the Body, Star Gazing, Play of Painting, Forest Walk, Drum Circle, Playful Acting, Perception Training, Horse Riding, and others.
A space will be provided for any accompanying teachers to take workshops as well.
