Youth are awesome!
Adolescence is a time of many changes but it is also one of the most important times in a person’s life. These years lay the groundwork for adulthood and can indeed be a fascinating time!
Youth are awkward? Well, yes but they are also
- intense and have vibrant emotions
- curious & adventurous
- hilarious and playful
- have strong opinions
- fiercely loyal
We are so honoured to be a part of this awesome time in their lives!
Youth camp should be awesome!
True North Youth Camp is the brainchild of The Mindful Camp. We have seen our young campers transitioning into tweenagers/teengers over the years – witnessing them becoming more independent, emotional, intellectual and adventurous. At the same time, they also lack the confidence as they navigate through the challenges of this new stage of life.
At True North Youth Camp we help our tweens/teens transition into confident, responsible and grounded young adults.
The Mindful Camp is known for its “fun-ness” (and sometimes “craziness”), we believe that youth learn best in an emotionally safe environment and through meaningful and fun activities.
That’s what True North Youth Camp is all about! A camp full of friendships, laughter, fun, and activities.
Drawing from Acceptance & Commitment Therapy for Adolescents, some of the topics our 5-day camp will cover:
- explore strategies to improve psychological flexibility,
- practice mindfulness
- recognise strengths
- appreciate the authentic self
- discover our values and commit to them
*Please note that this is not a group therapy or treatment program.
