Monday, July 12: Anatomy, Puberty and Menstruation
11:00-12:00 Dr. Jessica Rose
Campers will learn an embodiment practice that supports rebalancing of the nervous system while amplifying self-awareness, relaxation and presence. This practice supports participants the recognition of the power of their own presence as they directly experience how their body responds.
1:30-3:00 Michele Drake
Girls will learn about the anatomical names and roles of internal and external reproductive organs. We will discuss the journey of the egg and the role of menstruation while we make our anatomy collage.
Tuesday, July 13: Consent and Boundaries
10:45-11:45 Kristen Rubis
Inner Navigation Guide: We will learn to tap into our own intuition as a path towards awareness and safety. We will talk about healthy boundaries and having a clear sense of how to recognize what alignment and trust feels like in our bodies. Where do we receive our intuitive information? In our hearts, minds, guts or somewhere else in our body?
1:30-3:00 Lily Campbell & Simone Symonds
We will be exploring consent, boundaries, and bodily autonomy. We will think about questions like, what is consent? How can we communicate boundaries to those around us? and what do we do if a boundary is broken?"
Wednesday, July 14: Self Image and Social Media Awareness
10:45-11:45 Linda Terry
Grow your garden: Build your focus, memory, and thinking speed through fun activities and games.
1:30-3:00 Elizabeth Swanson
We will cover various terms in regards to body image; body positivity, body negativity, body neutrality. We will discuss what shapes our body image and how social media can play a part. There will be a partner activity and then we will have an art project where we decorate mirrors with empowering words and art.
Thursday, July 15: Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation
10:45-11:45 Cindel Tobias is a local high school teacher who is passionate about helping young people develop tools to be advocates for themselves and their greater community. Through movement practices such as Qigong, we hold our bodies in aligned postures, develop strong stabilizing muscles, and move our joints through their full ranges of motion. In a world where it is easy to be hunched over a phone or computer for many hours, movement practices are essential for not only our physical health but also our mental health.
1:30-3:00 Sara Kukkonen
Gender and sexuality are a beautiful spectrum. We’ll explore the difference between gender identity, gender expression, sex assigned at birth, as well as sexual and romantic orientation. We’ll also discuss where our ideas of gender roles come from and how we can all work together to create a safe community.
Friday, July 16: Resiliency, Relationships and Self Care
10:45-11:45 Amber Jenson
Meditation is a great way to help us calm our minds and tune in to the present. We will start by doing a meditation that engages our senses so that we can let our worries go and be focused on the moment. We will also do an Emotional Freedom Technique meditation, otherwise known as Tapping, focused on self-acceptance. Tapping helps our body move energy and feel more balanced. Tapping actually helps our brains change our thoughts and emotions so that we can move past challenges and see things differently.
1:30-3:00 Amber Jenson
We will learn what resilience is and how to build it so you can face challenges feeling empowered and capable. You’ll explore ways to improve your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing so that you can recover more quickly when you experience challenges, focus on problem solving, and keep a positive outlook. You will recognize how positive connections with yourself and others can enhance your resilience and support you through challenging times. By the end of class you’ll have a plan to help you thrive and tackle tough situations and bounce back!
