Be U: Stories to Grow On

August 16, 2021 – August 20, 2021 : 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Get to know YOU through the great world of books. Stories can help us take a closer look at our own thoughts and feelings, appreciate moments of joy, and face times of challenge. We’ll read stories as a group, create art, and use creative movement to understand and express our emotions more effectively. We will apply themes from the Elmer book series to gain a greater appreciation of our own uniqueness, consider the ways in which our feelings are like the weather, and learn to think more flexibly using books from the Creatrilogy series. Together, we will read, create, and grow!

A nut-free snack and pre-filled water bottle should be brought to Be U: Stories to Grown On each day. All campers should bring an extra mask.

Tracy Nemecek is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. As an undergraduate, she majored in Psychology and English, and discovered that bibliotherapy (the application of storytelling, reading, and literature as sources of healing) is the perfect nexus between her interests in people and stories.

In her counseling work, she has applied bibliotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and psychoeducation to assist children, teens, and adults in both private practice and school settings to learn more about themselves, set and achieve realistic goals, and strengthen their coping skills.

Camp Alpha

August 16, 2021 – August 20, 2021 : 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM

Camp Alpha is designed for new and returning varsity HAC cross country athletes to prepare for the fall season ahead. The camp gives teammates a chance to get a head start on the official season with some conditioning work together. But Camp Alpha is about more than just running. It also provides an opportunity to do more intensive learning about the sport and related skills through clinics, and allows us to partake in focused team-bonding activities.

Each day will begin with a warm-up routine and some type of running workout. Camp sessions will also also include instruction on proper stretching, injury prevention, mobility exercises, core strengthening, yoga, proper warm-ups/cool-downs, etc. There will also be 1-2 interactive clinics covering relevant topics (one during lunch), including presentations to the team by special guest speakers.

All participants should bring an extra mask, a pre-filled water bottle, and a nut-free lunch.
