It’s never too early to learn mindfulness! Register your preschooler or elementary age child to join Dr. Ann Friedman, psychologist and certified mindfulness facilitator, and Dr. Robin Jump, public health expert, for a mindfulness camp!

In this week-long program, your child will learn techniques to strengthen their curiosity, attention, and self-awareness and to calm themselves when stressed. They will practice connecting with others with kindness and to express their feelings and needs.

This is a drop-off program. While some of the activities will be outdoors, we will predominantly be in an indoor classroom (The Morgan Reading Room). Practice activities will be sent home with each family. Feel free to send non-perishable snacks, but we will also offer snack options during a mid-morning break where we will practice mindful eating skills.

Discovery Green is located at 1500 McKinney St, Houston, TX, 77010. Information on parking access and exact drop-off location will be circulated to registrants in advance of the program.

Parents and guardians will be required to sign a waiver in order for their child to participate. This waiver will be distributed roughly two weeks before the program begins. If you register, please add rjump@junghouston.org to your email account’s contact list, to ensure that you receive the required waiver.

This program is being offered IN-PERSON only. Masks are optional.

All times are CT. Please contact onlinelearning@junghouston.org with any questions.

Please register early. Programs with four or fewer participants are subject to cancellation, 48 hours prior to their start.
