Kids Yoga Summer Camp
Join Certified Youth Yoga Instructors Jenifer Trivelli, MS & Chantal Barton E-RYT 200 for a fun-filled, week-long outdoor summer day camp at a historical retreat located in the Willamette Valley, in-between Salem and Silverton
Begin Their Summer with Nature, Movement, and Mindfulness
Daily Dose of Yoga
We'll begin each day with our opening circle in our yoga tent; a time for getting to know each other through a variety of community-building activities and sharing of the day's activities.
Every camper will enjoy morning and afternoon yoga classes created specifically to engage their imaginations and have fun through story, games, and partner activities, while also teaching skills to guide them towards balance and connection within themselves.
Jenifer and Chantal are certified Kids Yoga Instructors through Yoga Alliance Accredited programs.

So many hours of fun to fill at summer camp!
Nature - With acres of trails to explore, the kids will get to discover countless exciting things across the land; two beautiful creeks, open pastures with friendly animals, a giant tree house and space to just enjoy free time outside.
Special Daily Activity - Art projects, music and creative outdoor games is just a little sample of what we'll be doing!
Other Events - Mindful snacks. Pause for journaling or drawing about the camp experience. Yoga and other group games. Chill time to laugh with new friends on the open lawn. Create a special art project to take home at the end of the week.
It can be stressful to be a kid today! Unplug and recharge at Yogi Summer Camp as we transition to summer.

Chantal has been teaching yoga since 2013 and loves guiding children through lively imagination filled yoga flows. These classes stimulate and engage the mind using a variety of tools and yoga games that help children find and understand what "calm" even means so they can begin to self-regulate their reactions in life.
With laughter filled instruction, Chantal brings fun and special types of movement to summercamp. She has studied anatomy in depth and loves to use acro-yoga to teach the kiddos more about body awareness and slowing wild movements down so exciting new tricks can be accomplished.

More About Summer Camp & GeerCrest Farm
Our Camp Assistant
Arla Baragar, aka "Grandma"
With 4 sons, Arla has spent the majority of her life outdoors while the boys were growing up. They lived in Colorado, Alaska and the Sierra Nevada Range of California. She worked outside with PG&E Hydroelectric reservoirs, recreation concessionaires and the Forest Service. When the grandkids came along she continued to enjoy hiking, camping and teaching them how to respect the outdoors as we enjoyed them together. (Arla is Chantal's amazing grandma and a lovely human being)
After retiring in 2002, she moved to Park City and worked at the Public Library with the children's librarian, especially with craft projects. She now lives in Oregon and loves to volunteer locally to share her knowledge of the forests and help the young ones begin to understand how the eco-systems of this planet work together.
Yogi campers will have the option to meet some calm and friendly animals during their retreat week. From baby goats to a special breed of ducks that don't quack (what!?), there are many wonderful creatures to meet and learn about. No horseback riding is permitted, but the two horses are very gentle and make wonderful friends <3
Each of the animals play an important role on the farm -from providing eggs and milk to soft, warm wool that gets spun and woven. GeerCrest farmers are excited to teach us about what each animal adds to the farm and how to interact with them.
GeerCrest Farm is just that. A beautiful farm that is rich with history, dedicated people, and good food. Much of our camp time will be spent having fun outside. Yogi Campers will get the chance to see and experience where food comes from and how it gets to the store. You'll want to send your kiddo to camp in outside friendly clothing so they can pick berries and get muddy!
$300 | Per Yogi Camper
Includes: A week long summer day camp jam packed with yoga, games, explorations and adventures.
Does NOT include: Lunch or transportation to/from camp. For additional fee, lunch can be provided by GeerCrest.
Once you reserve your spot, and information packet will be emailed to you.
