Summer Camp

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 four 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.
