About the event

This week-long summer camp experience in Cheryl's home learning kitchen will combine mindfulness through food experiences for girls rising 6th to 9th grade. Along with cooking a recipe of the day and journaling, your child will learn how the brain works, mindfulness techniques, and the social/emotional skills and tools they can use to stay balanced, grounded, and rooted in trust for themselves. Each day will end gathered at the table to share food and reflections. Students will leave with a printed collection of techniques, tools, and recipes. with Cheryl Latta, Middle School Educator at Community School of Davidson and Peace of Mind Facilitator.

Cost: $200 for the week, all food and supplies included

Daily Themes:

Day One: Introducing How Your Brain Works  - Along with the recipe of the day, the focus will be learning how to become aware, identify, regulate and manage your emotions so you feel in the driver's seat.

Day Two: Exploring Your Energy and How You Use it  - The theme of the day is "Your Power Comes from Your Choices". You will learn about your own energy, what adds to it, what takes it away, and how to create balance. Cooking as self-care is one way to experience a more mindful approach to your day.

Day Three: Feeling Like You Are Enough - Learn the difference between external validation and feeling wholeness from within. Happiness is an inside job. Belonging begins with belonging to ourselves. This class will be an exploration of who you are and why that matters.

Day Four: What's Getting in My Way? - Learn about how our brain works, the negativity bias, our brain's inclination to think about the past and the future instead of what is happening in the present, and tools to counteract that and put your life into perspective. 

Day Five: Exploring Belonging, Boundaries, and Trust -  What are boundaries and why are they important? Why do we shift into rigid, black-and-white thinking that can be hard to shift when we are experiencing friendship issues? Knowing where you end and someone else begins creates supportive relationships that allow you to be yourself and be celebrated.
