All participating children should be fully toilet-trained and able to function independently in a large group. Activities planned: yoga, nature hikes/outdoor exploration, arts & crafts, storytelling, and more. Breakfast will be served each morning.

This program is organized as a parent cooperative with the requirement of at least one parent from each family for a 2-hour shift one of the mornings as well as a 1-hour shift on New Year's Eve.

One thing that is very helpful is to wish well to every creature.

Such a thought will raise one from the very bottom to the highest point. Always, peace unto all creatures.
