This multi-day residential retreat teaches participants proven awareness and concentration practices. Through guided mindfulness meditation, small group discussions, and mindful movement, participants learn how to settle a busy mind, direct and sustain attention, investigate emotions and thoughts, cultivate compassion, and communicate with their peers.
The daily schedule includes free time to connect with new friends and dynamic workshops, that offer a range of experiences from creative and movement arts, sports, nature awareness, creative writing, and more! Many hesitant teens walk away saying it was one of the best experiences of their lives.
The teen to staff ratio on every retreat is 2 or 3 to 1, ensuring that your teen receives exceptional support and mentoring. The skills and experiences that teens gain on retreat are unparalleled and go on to support them throughout the rest of their lives.
