EMPOWERED GIRL’S TOOL BOX FOR THE QUEEN BEE OF THE PLAYGROUND

Focus: Develop playground social skills to manage unfriendly situations with girls who are always deciding the activity, making negative comments or excluding.  Build social skills that help girls be connected by knowing how to manage playground sticky situations and how to join groups.  The playground is where most hurt feelings and sticky situations happen.  This camp will help girls build their toolbox of confidence, assertiveness, and strategies to deal typical situations that happen at recess. Girls will learn the roles kids play in social situations and how to deal with the Queen Bee.  They will learn how to problem solve to be inclusive, deal with the rule changers and rule breakers, and be a good winner and loser.  Girls will learn words, tone of voice and how their body language should look.  We will play games (everything from jumping rope to foursquare) and role play situations that happen at recess.

GIRLS EMPOWERED:  YOGA Girls

Focus: Develop coping skills and strategies for managing stress, worries and daily challenges.  Girls are faced with immense pressure to be popular and the best at everything they do from sports to grades. Many girls feel overscheduled, pressured to look a certain way and feel if they don’t measure up they are not good enough. Often girls are dealing with friendships that are hot/cold, lack loyalty and are cliquey. Many girls try so hard to fit in & please friends that they often give up who they are. We’ll explore how yoga, meditation and self-care can promote better self-esteem, a greater sense of confidence and emotional balance. This week of camp will include daily yoga & address significant areas of stress for girls.

 

Girls will get the benefits from yoga of strengthening their bodies & relaxing their minds while learning how to be grounded to deal with hot/cold friendships, trying to fit in and the pressure to be popular. We will look at journaling, music, creativity, the importance of building a supportive network, and everyday ways to cope with stress. Girls will walk away with the visuals to build a yoga toolbox full of empowering tools. Wear comfortable clothing & bring a Yoga mat/towel.

GIRLS EMPOWERED INSIDE OUT

Focus: Managing emotions and having social skills to respond appropriately to social and family situations.  Emotional regulation is our ability to manage our emotions in how we respond to situations. It is one of the most important predictors of success. If we do not have the tools in our tool box our emotional response may cause us to overreact in a negative way that impacts our self-esteem and confidence and in the future lead to depression, eating disorders and negative self-worth. Sometimes when we react emotionally and we inflame a situation.  We will use the movie Inside Out to teach girls healthy ways to deal with feelings. We will celebrate the things that give us joy.

 

Girls will learn how to manage their emotions whether it is dealing with an unfriendly friend, a Queen Bee, a sibling, family issues or facing a fear they have. Developing our emotional regulation builds confidence in ourselves, helps us respond appropriately to social situations & problems, increases our emotional intelligence & helps us with friendships. Girls will have fun doing themed crafts, poster activities & being physically active.
