Other camps you might look at

If your child is interested in meditation, you might also look into the following.

Types of meditation (source: healthline.com)

There are numerous types of meditation (and thus many types of meditation camps). Below, are some of the main kinds of meditation currently being practiced.

Mindfulness: In mindfulness meditation, you pay attention to your thoughts as they pass through your mind. You don’t judge the thoughts or become involved with them. You simply observe and take note of any patterns.

Spiritual: It’s similar to prayer in that you reflect on the silence around you and seek a deeper connection with your God or Universe.

Focused: Focused meditation involves concentration using any of the five senses.

Movement: Although most people think of yoga when they hear movement meditation, this practice may include walking through the woods, gardening, qigong, and other gentle forms of motion.

Mantra: Mantra meditation is prominent in many teachings, including Hindu and Buddhist traditions. This type of meditation uses a repetitive sound to clear the mind. It can be a word, phrase, or sound, such as the popular “Om.”

Transcendental: This is more customizable than mantra meditation, using a mantra or series of words that are specific to each practitioner.

Progressive: Also known as body scan meditation, progressive relaxation is a practice aimed at reducing tension in the body and promoting relaxation.

Visualization: Visualization meditation is a technique focused on enhancing feelings of relaxation, peace, and calmness by visualizing positive scenes or images.

Benefits of meditation camps

Meditation provides many benefits for kids and adults. It introduces relaxation techniques that can positively impact many parts of one’s life. And often, it can become a long-term practice, which can lead to lasting improvements to one’s well-being.

Choosing the right meditation camp 

What’s the best way to choose the right meditation camp for your child? First, think more seriously about them: their age, experience, interests, and goals. 

Then, of course, you should look closely at the camps themselves. Talk to directors and staff, and visit camps whenever possible. For instance, if it’s a camp focusing on mindfulness meditation, you might ask the following questions:

  • How do you teach mindfulness skills?
  • Do you use a specific textbook?
  • How often should my child practice mindfulness?
  • How might these skills help them?

For further guidance on choosing the right camp for your child, check out the following resources on OurKids.net:
