Event description
Project:Happy! is a BRAND NEW, 5-day school holiday camp teaching kids tools to increase their happiness and wellbeing!

About this event

Empower your child to take charge of their happiness and wellbeing!

The Positive Place is proud to offer their BRAND NEW 5-day programme, Project:Happy! that has been designed to teach your child tools and strategies shown in research to increase happiness and well-being. And while these tools aren’t always part of the school curriculum, learning tools to develop a happy heart, a healthy body, and a steady mind will set your child up for success in all areas of their lives, including at school!

We know children learn best when they are having fun, so expect learning to happen through games, sharing and teaching circles, movement, creative projects, and mindfulness fun!

The children will make new friends while learning tools that can help them to feel happier, healthier, calmer and focused, both now and in the future.

Camp Dates and Timing

Choose from either:

Camp 1: 14-18 June 2021

Camp 2: 21-25 June 2021

From 2-5pm daily

What can my child expect?

Each day of the camp, we will teach the children a specific positive tool that, when practiced regularly, will grow their happiness and wellbeing!

  • Positive Tool 1 - Know your strengths
  • Positive Tool 2 - Understand your feelings
  • Positive Tool 3 - Develop a growth mindset
  • Positive Tool 4 - Be resilient
  • Positive Tool 5 - Show gratitude

Teaching will occur through a range of fun and engaging daily activities including:

  • Games
  • Sharing and Teaching Circles
  • Movement
  • Mindfulness
  • Creative Projects

How does Project:Happy! help to develop happy hearts, healthy bodies and steady minds?

Happy Hearts

Project:Happy! helps to create happy hearts by teaching your child a range of skills to promote a sense of wellbeing. We will teach methods to boost positive moods and to cope with negative emotions. We will promote kindness to self and others and explore the practice of gratitude. Your child will also come to know their own character strengths while understanding the importance of developing a growth mindset and greater resilience! Every one of the techniques we will teach during the programme, including being kind and expressing gratitude, have been shown in scientific research to improve well-being!

Healthy Bodies

Our focus at Project:Happy! is on health and vitality, not shapes and sizes.  Moving our bodies every day is good for all of us and we will encourage the children to find the form of activity or movement that they enjoy best!  We also believe that healthy bodies start with good eating habits and getting plenty of quality sleep. Through our discussions with the children about these topics, we hope they will be empowered to take positive actions to care for their own health. We also model good eating habits and supply a daily platter of fresh fruits to the children at snack time each day!

Steady Minds

A steady mind is one that can be calm and, when necessary, can more easily focus to the present moment. As mindfulness is a key skill that has been scientifically proven to improve focus and to calm the mind, the children will spend some time every day of the camp practicing mindfulness. While many children might think that mindfulness is ‘boring’ and can only be practiced by watching their breath, by exposing them to a range of different mindfulness activities, we hope your child will discover that practising mindfulness skills can actually be fun!

Our Approach

Kindness and positivity are at the heart of everything we do at The Positive Place and you can expect every day of camp to be infused with not only fun, but knowledge and tools drawn from the science of positive psychology!

  • 5 sessions of learning and fun facilitated by The Positive Place team
