One of the major ways Dancing Jaguar’s Spirit Camp differs from other camps is its focus. This program teaches children to focus inward and to learn how to navigate their inner landscape.
When children are at school, they nurture their minds; when they play sports they nurture their bodies; and when they attend Spirit Camp, they learn to nurture their spirit — that wonderful essence that makes each child a unique, beautiful individual. Human beings are made up of mind, body, and spirit. We live in a modern society that places value on nurturing the mind and body.
Dancing Jaguar’s Spirit Camp teaches children how to nurture their heart and spirit.
The spirit within each of us contains a small, quiet voice, – our intuition. This voice can also be referred to as “our higher self” or “higher consciousness.” When we turn off or refuse to listen to the voice within, we lose our connection to the deepest part of who we are.
Using games, crafts, songs, and activities to connect to that inner essence, children at Spirit Camp are encouraged to trust their intuition, honor their truth and speak from the heart. What an important set of goals!
Religion, however, is not a part of Spirit Camp. Children are exposed to mindfulness, meditation, and other modalities that assist them in connecting to their inner world, but religious dogma is not included in the curriculum.
Rather than learning to use a set of rules to navigate the ups and downs of life, children develop their inner compass. By learning to listen to their inner voice, they come to trust themselves to make choices that will sustain mind, body, and spirit.
In Spirit Camp, children are also taught that the human body is a big bundle of energy, as is everything around us. When children learn that their emotions are “Energy in Motion” and are given the tools to move that energy through, then out of their bodies, they are receiving invaluable tools to help them navigate difficult situations in their lives.
Spirit Camp is a brand new kind of summer camp. Its purpose is to assist children to connect to the essence of who they are, to learn how to nurture that essence, and to trust it when they have important decisions to make.
