“Travel to the lost Ithaca”

A unique Kids and Parents Camp – Paleros, Greece 19-26 0f August 2017

Yoga, Art, Music

About

Spend one week, with your beloved ones at “The Yoga Hostel”  situated on the west coast of Greece. The ideal place for families, with a pleasant garden and modern amenities, just 200 m from the sea, situated 20 km off Lefkada Island, on the west coast of Greece, in the quiet settlement of Paleros.

Parents together with children will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the sun and the sea on one of Greece most beautiful coastlines- the west, while engaging in creative and artistic activities.

We will use the myth of Odysseus who is trying to get back to his homeland- Ithaca- based on the book Odyssey of the great ancient Greek poet Homer as the backbone of all designed activities. The children will be trapped by the Nymph Calypso and will have to make their way out, through the wilderness. They will make maps of their heroic journey and then navigate in the seas to escape mythical monsters. The adults will enter in a more self-questioning process through their meditation, yoga and art therapy sessions, defining their little Ithaca and what does it mean to them.

Food will be vegetarian and organic, cooked on the premises, full of local flavours, and fresh fruits promoting wellbeing and boosting energy for the body by the Foodpath cooperative.

The Workshop

Program, food and costs:

After, a rejuvenating breakfast, the morning will be full of outdoor games for the children and sports/fun activities. The adults will have free time to explore the region, which offers many alternatives to just bathing, like diving, sailing, canoeing, trekking, herb collecting, sightseeing etc.  Some of the mornings there will be optional art therapy sessions for the adults after breakfast and meditation sessions before.

After lunch there is free time for families together to get a rest. Then, the afternoon starts with a dynamic yoga for adults, while the children engage into creative arts activities.

Dinner will be served on the premises as the last activity of the day, except from some nights when special activities are planned like a theatre play for children or a traditional music concert. There will also be the possibility of movie screenings in the open- air patio if families are interested.
