Summer is a busy and active time for teens.  For many, they are trying out new jobs, looking for more responsibility, and finding ways to practice their independence.   Trying to find balance between friends, family and new experiences can feel stressful, even during the lazy days of summer. It is important for us to support them in this need for balance.  During this long break from school, it is important for teens to feel nourished with ample time to restore and re-fuel. We can support them by offering them an opportunity to experience a week long Wellness Retreat!    So many teens experience the beginnings of mind chatter, and the pressure of both internal and external expectations. Despite their drive and ambition, teenagers also need time to be still and quiet. It is in these peaceful moments, that they can reflect and process their experiences while creating that much needed mind-space to tune inward and notice how they feel.   Peace and quiet allows the body to shift into “rest and digest” mode (the opposite of fight or flight) which is the mode in which the body can heal itself. This kind of self awareness at a young age is essential for teens to grow into more confident, strong, and resilient adults.

Allow your teens time to “get away”  this Summer by treating them to a week long Wellness Retreat!

This Summer Retreat is designed from a holistic perspective, with an emphasis on strengthening mental wellness and the mind-body connection.  Over the course of the week, this program will immerse your teens in creativity, mindfulness and yoga. Each day they will be engaged in active and meaningful art-making, drama, reflective journaling, soothing and practical mindfulness practices as well as restorative yoga.  Lots of time will be spent outdoors being inspired by nature right on grounds at The Well. Each participant will leave with a personalized “Wellness Tool-Kit” which will be full of reminders, tips and all of the learned material from the week.

During the retreat, kids will use different modalities to explore a different theme each day:

  • Self-Acceptance

  • Kindness

  • Gratitude

  • Love

  • Community
