At Gold Arrow Camp, we strive to not only provide our campers with memorable, happy, and life-changing camp experiences during the summer, but also to provide resources to our camp families that enhance our campers’ lives year-round. Through On Target magazine, the Sunshine Parenting website, and our camp blog, we share educational resources that support raising thriving kids.
This spring, we have an exciting educational opportunity for camp parents. Through our affiliation with the Western Association of Independent Camps (WAIC), we are co-sponsoring an interview with Tina Payne Bryson about her new book, The Yes Brain: How to Cultivate Courage, Curiosity, and Resilience in Your Child.
About The Yes Brain:
When facing contentious issues such as screen time, food choices, and bedtime, children often act out or shut down, responding with reactivity instead of receptivity. This is what New York Times bestselling authors Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson call a No Brain response. But our kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity. When kids work from a Yes Brain, they’re more willing to take chances and explore. They’re more curious and imaginative. They’re better at relationships and handling adversity. In The Yes Brain, the authors give parents skills, scripts, and activities to bring kids of all ages into the beneficial “yes” state.
We hope you’ll join us at a special Facebook Live event called “The Yes Brain at Camp.” The live video interview will be on May 4 at 4:30 pm PT. You can access the event at bit.ly/WAIC-Facebook. Camp Director Audrey “Sunshine” Monke will be moderating the interview with Tina.
You’ll learn how camp staff incorporate the “yes brain” approach in working with campers to bring out their best behavior. You’ll also learn tips you can use at home!
If you miss the live event, don’t worry! We’ll also share the video with you here on our website and in a future email newsletter to parents.
