Camp to Belong 2019 - Get Outside with Kids for a Full Week in Maine! @ Camp to Belong Maine rented facility (New England Golf and Tennis Camp)

Run, swim, kayak, and play with youth who in foster care, who are attending a one-week summer sleepaway camp with siblings who they have been separated from. In between roasting s’mores and making sure kids get from their bunkbeds to activities and meals safely, you’ll take in gorgeous Maine scenery, eat 3+ meals a day cooked by the facility, and meet incredible humans from all walks of life. And at the end of the week, you’ll return home with tan cheeks, an overflowing heart, and the knowledge you provided an irreplaceable service to campers, as for some of them this is the only week of the summer they see their brother or sister during the year.

Got goosebumps? Apply now! No experience with the foster care system is necessary – training on some basic background is provided during orientation, and after you apply Camp To Belong Maine will contact you to learn more about you, and give you the opportunity to ask questions!

Want to chat with a counselor alum before starting the application process? Fit Maine Social Club member Stefanie Millette is a veteran Camp to Belong volunteer and can share her perspective at stefanie.millette@gmail.com

Refine your Sun Salutation @ The Daily Sweat
Aug 18 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Refine your Sun Salutation @ The Daily Sweat

Sun salutations are a sequence of poses linked together by the breath. They work to strengthen the body and focus the mind, and form the foundation for the entire practice. Because we are constantly moving and rarely holding the individual poses, it is easy to lose our alignment. If we develop unconscious habits that are repeated over and over, this can lead to injury.

In this workshop we will first focus on the breath. Long, even breaths steady the nervous system, strengthens the body, and builds internal heat. When you are concerned with the breath within one posture, or one movement, your mind is in the present moment, which is where yoga wants us to be. After focusing on the breath we will work on refining our alignment in each of the postures in Sun Salutation A & B. We will take a deeper look at what is happening in chaturanga, upward facing dog, and downward facing dog, and explore different modifications and enhancements so that all levels will benefit—from beginner to advanced.

Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool
Aug 19 @ 6:00 am – 6:45 am
Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool | Biddeford | Maine | United States

Boot camp uses interval, circuit, and aerobic training. It will burn fat, tone muscle, improve posture, build strength and endurance, and build confidence. You work out your arms, legs, and core using exercises that incorporate your whole body. Boot camp can get you into the best shape of your life. As one of my campers stated, “I am stronger, faster, and leaner”
A typical day includes a warm up, stretches, the ‘workout’, cool down, a possible game or challenge, and finishing stretches.

Boot camps varying routines are intense sessions that offer a variety of exercises, and challenge every muscle in your body. By rapidly moving from one exercise to the next, with minimal breaks, you can get a cardiovascular workout while simultaneously toning your muscles. And, you burn lots of calories. Its fun, varied, motivating, produces amazing results, and meets at a fantastic location.

Boot camp’s 45 minutes workouts allow you to do strength training and aerobic training in a single workout, which is very efficient when you have a limited time to work out.
