    To be able to regulate one’s self, one must have skills for calming the body, expressing emotions in healthy ways, and moderating thoughts to problem solve effectively. The skills introduced will utilize evidence based cognitive behavioral psychology strategies that target self-regulation in three domains: physical, emotional, and cognitive.
    We cannot remove all the obstacles and challenges our children face but we can provide them with tools that help them cope and skills that empower them to make healthy choices on their own.

    Cost: $175**
    Instructor: Paul Van, Skyhawks

    Skyhawks Golf focuses on building the confidence of young athletes by teaching proper technique to refine essential skills of the game. Golf is a challenging and lifelong sport, so young athletes need proper focus on the fundamentals of form, swinging, putting, and body positioning. To assist in this training, Skyhawks has adopted the SNAG (Starting New At Golf) system to its curriculum. SNAG utilizes a set of equipment designed for beginning golfers, including oversized plastic club heads and “mini tennis balls” to help build confidence and to have fun. Developed by PGA professionals, SNAG is specifically designed for the entry-level player; SNAG simplifies instruction so that young players can make an easy and effective transition onto the golf course. No need to bring your own clubs — all equipment is provided. We keep the instructor-to-camper ratio low, resulting in limited availability.

    **For an additional $125, Campers can complete their week with either Kinder Camp (K-1st) or Adventure Camp (2nd-4th). You can drop them off in morning carpool and we'll get them to SNAG Camp at 1:00pm. They'll be having fun with the regular day campers before going to SNAG Campl!
