A unique camp, in dubai for the very first time
This summer, children (aged between 7 and 11) will have the opportunity to attend a brand new, fun-filled and rewarding summer camp in Dubai designed to encourage and instil Resilience, Confidence, Happiness and Mindfulness in children.
Introducing the Mindfulness for Kids Summer Camp.
Numerous studies have shown that children who participate in mindfulness programs tend be happier boys and girls. Today's technology-filled world accelerates the pace at which children grow up. They are forced to respond quickly to life and are often unprepared for these demands. Our week-long program will prepare kids for these challenges by teaching them skills and life-long applicable tools that will help prepare them for a better future.
Why is Resilience, Confidence, Happiness and Mindfulness important for today's children?
Adversity is a fact of life that hits most of us but not everyone can bounce back from it as strong as before. Only people with resilience overcome difficulties and failures and find a way to rise from the ashes. For children, learning how to deal with setbacks is a critical skill and our program will address this in a fun and practical way.
Children with a strong sense of self worth feel competent to cope with the basic challenges of life and feel worthy of success and happiness. Confident children with self-esteem feel liked and accepted, feel proud of what they can do, think positively and believe in themselves. Conversely, children with low self-esteem are often self-critical and hard on themselves and may feel that they're not as 'good' as the other kids and think back of the times when they have failed rather than when they've succeeded.
What makes a happy child who grows into a happy adult? Research suggests that happiness is closely linked to three types of habits:
(a) How we think about the world and how we therefore perceive personal experiences
(b) Certain actions or habits such as exercise, eating healthily, connecting with other people and regularly smiling and laughing.
(c) Character traits such as self-control, industriousness, fairness, caring about others, wisdom courage, leadership and honesty.
From our earliest moments, mindfulness can help minimize anxiety and increase happiness. Diversity comes at us from the moment we are born. Infants get hungry and tired. Toddlers grapple with language and self-control. As children develop through adolescence to become teenagers, life grows ever more complicated. Developing relationships, navigating school and exercising independence — the very stuff of growing up — naturally creates stressful situations for every child.
At each developmental stage, mindfulness can be a useful tool for decreasing anxiety and promoting happiness. Mindfulness — a simple technique that emphasizes on paying attention to one's present moment in an accepting, nonjudgmental manner — has emerged as a popular mainstream practice in recent decades. It is being taught to executives at organizations, to athletes in the locker room, and increasingly, to children both at home and in school.
Children can benefit greatly for mindfulness practice. Good, positive habits formed early in life will lead to enhanced behaviors in adulthood. With mindfulness, we are providing children today, with the opportunity of being peaceful, kind and accepting through to adulthood.
Our Mindfulness for Kids Summer Camp will consist of fun group and individual activities including art, drama and games to teach children the following skills:
- How to understand and manage emotions
- How to build resilience
- Improving self-esteem and confidence
- How to solve problems
- How to cope with stress and worries
- Build and maintain positive relationships
- Improve concentration and focus
- Greater physical and emotional well-being
Our experienced mindfulness instructors have extensive experience in education and counselling.
