V-CAMP Activities
Open to all, anywhere! The V-Camp will run for the full week with various sessions per day for each age group. And you can 
see all activities described here. 

 

♥ Be-Kind Creative World: thoughtful art projects to appreciate multi-cultural diversity and to engage in protecting our beautiful Earth environment.

♥ Free-of-Image Design Studio: mix-n-match fun design of t-shirts and room décor to showcase their personality and enjoy others.

♥ Secret Science or Magic: learn the science behind everything in a clever mix of fun projects that use chemistry, physics, and biology. Over the course of the week, they will make cool projects, conduct experiments, and search for clues — then use their findings to open a chamber of the magical secret.

♥ Inside Out Time Machine: Various educational games design to help campers to explore their own emotions and inner strength. Just like traveling into Riley’s mind, campers will get to meet their own joy, fear, anger, disgust, sadness, and even Bing Bong. This is an incredible tool for social-emotional learning to train campers in soft skills and it’s also super fun!

♥ Back-to-School Mindful Studio: Various activities including yoga, brain break exercise, eyestrain relief technique, re-energize meditation, and many mindfulness practices in social media, self-compassion, bullying awareness, mindful study & test-taking. All these wonderful workshops to prepare campers with a healthy mind and soft skills to successfully study and learn in a new fully-virtual school setting.

We have specifically chosen our activities to be hands-on and story-driven for the youngsters, and hands-off for the parents. Our FAQs below will address more questions about the program and registration.

what is V-CAMP?

V-CAMP is our virtual summer camp 2020 programming. It represents a new version of CAMP and stands for Virtual Creative Art & Mindful Projects.

V-CAMP is our way of bringing the signature BYA Summer Camp Experience to you. Like any other summer, our Virtual CAMP programming and activities will entail creative, colorful, engaging, and project-packed activities as well as our signature skillful workshops in mindfulness and social-emotional learnings. The difference is that our curriculum has been thoughtfully re-designed to encourage independence, build confidence, and strengthen inner fitness through these hands-on activities and workshops from home – or wherever you are.

That’s right – we will provide all the fun supplies, project how-tos, and an engaging and supportive instructor – and you will bring joyful energy and creativity! Together we will Create Cool Things and Make Things Cool!

what will CAMP include?

1. Super Cool Supply Kits + Printed Project Guides – shipped right to you

We’ll send you a supply box packed with everything you need for a week’s worth of projects for the children campers. The bag is your creativity kit!

2. DIY Videos Instruction emails to inspire your creativity to create Stuff in your own Time & Space
How-to videos to accompany each themed activity so that young campers can reference them any time they want, or any time they need a little extra explanation or inspiration! 

3. Live / Real-Time Engagement in Small Groups
This is the winner! Our online programming has been designed by our creative staff into a virtual-based curriculum to play, learn, and engage. Classes will be taught by our caring camp counselors and instructors. In addition to plenty of hands-on projects, the week includes story-lines, scavenger hunts, tinker time, show-and-tells, and of course, our Bodhi signature activities in yoga, meditation, mindfulness workshops in gratitude, open communication, self-care and self-respect. 

what does this mean for parents?

Engagement for your children, during the times you need it. Our goal is to provide as much support and engagement as possible so that there is little hands-on time required from parents.

 

Any Time…
We will also have the recorded tutorials and pre-recorded Video How-Tos available to you at any time, so you don’t have to restrict your family schedule to CAMP hours.

 

Any Where…
It also means you can take us on the road! Not home during our V-CAMP time? Take us with you on your iPad, iPhone, or any tablets!

 

Any One!
This is it! A wonderful opportunity for...

+ past campers refresh their mindfulness skills or strengthen their practice!

+ new campers to learn mindfulness and begin their practice to get ready for many changes in the upcoming school year with a challenging learning environment!

+ young children tag-along campers: for $50/week so they can have their own creativity kit and audit the classes with their registered camper siblings!

 

Why V-CAMP?

Of course, V-CAMP (Virtual Creative Art & Mindful Projects) is not the same as the *camp* we have known and loved – truly, our norms have changed, at least for now. And at the same time, Bodhi Academy and BYA are joining to deliver a *new* Bodhi V-CAMP experience to your home – or wherever you may be – with supply kits, online programming, all the DIYs, and a low price. 

Like any other summer, our Virtual CAMP programs will entail creative, colorful, engaging, and project-packed activities as well as our signature skillful workshops in mindfulness and social-emotional learnings. Our curriculum has been thoughtfully re-designed to encourage independence, build confidence, and strengthen inner fitness through these hands-on activities and workshops!

We provide all the fun maker supplies, project how-tos, and engaging and supportive instructors – you still bring the cool ideas and creativity!

Together we will Create Cool Things and Make Things Cool!
