First Childrens Yoga Camp in the West

Swami Vishnudevananda, founder of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashrams and Centers, was the first yogi in the West to teach Childrens Yoga Camp.

We carry on this tradition at the Yoga Farm by offering our annual Childrens Yoga Camp, a ten-day overnight summer camp teaching children ages 7-14 yoga, for the past 25 years.

Learning Life Skills

The childrent will learn life skills such as Karma Yoga which will be introduced to the campers, including chores around the farm, cooking and gardening workshops, and caring for the animals.


Childrens Camp Activities

Our Childrens’ camp has been held every summer since the early 1980’s, for youth ages 7-14, and is led by our staff of certified and experienced Sivananda Yoga teachers.

The ratio of counselors to children is 1:4, children have comfortable bunk-bed accommodations in camp cabins, and wholesome organic vegetarian meals are served 4 times daily.

Childrens Yoga School

All children will benefit from daily Yoga classes and breathing exercises combined with relaxation. They will learn about and practice mediation, the value of Karma Yoga ( selfless service ) and have their own children’s satsang with daily singing and inspiring stories.

There will also be plenty of time for swimming, fun and games, and special activities outside the Yoga Farm.


The camp is an uplifting environment and ideal to create a foundation for your child’s peaceful and healthy development.

We also offer a position for Junior Counselors, for campers who have been in our camp before, outgrew camp age and want to come back. Please contact us for more information.



The experience my daughter gets from this camp is fantastic. I love that it’s more than an active camp of just “playing”, that it offers deeper life long skills that will help to guide her. She makes great friends and is eager to go back next year. This was our second year attending. It’s a beautiful, positive, loving place. The staff, counselors and swamis hold this in their heartspace. It takes special people to work with children with all kinds of personalities, backgrounds and ages. I thank you for keeping my daughter safe, being kind and encouraging her spiritual growth.
