The Arc of Buncombe County's Health and
Wellness Program Provides Classes in Local Schools
The Arc of Buncombe County’s Health & Wellness program implements twenty-five classes per week in seven local schools within Buncombe County and Asheville City School system.
The Arc of Buncombe County’s Health & Wellness program students with intellectual and developmental disabilities enjoy the benefits of healthy nutritional snacks, nutritional education, yoga therapeutics, dance, and mindfulness.
During the summer months, The Arc of Buncombe County’s Health & Wellness program hosts a Resiliency & Mindfulness summer camp to create a bridge in learning and support for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Arc of Buncombe County is passionate about helping individuals achieve their potential through education, family support, services, and programs that enrich their lives.
At Best Self Wellness we know how challenging it is to juggle life with a special needs’ family member; especially during summer months. Families report they find limited resources and many students face barriers in participating in summer activities due
to their special needs.
We are here to help bridge the gap in summer programming for special needs students with our annual Yoga & Mindfulness summer camp. For the past three years, Best Self Wellness and The Arc of Buncombe County have combined their forces and resources to bring summer programming to students with special needs.
Together we are able to offer students with special needs a yoga and mindfulness summer camp to bridge the gap in summer programs and activities for special needs students.
Despite COVID-19, we are still able to offer a creative no-contact camp-in-a-box delivery subscription! We hope these treasure boxes full of fun yoga, mindfulness, and crafts help your loved one combat the social disconnection that we are all facing during these difficult times.
See you in 2021
