     This retreat is an opportunity to yet again escape to the beautiful Jenkins Estate with other girls of the same age for a second week and continue to practice tools that will empower her to be a more confident, skilled, and successful woman in the future. The retreat is led by Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Paula Pilcher, and other health professional specialists, who will teach them tools scientifically proven to improve self-esteem and body image. This retreat is for girls in Middle School, ages 11-13 years old. The advanced tween retreats are for those who want to expand into more topics, practices, and product-making activities. The advanced retreat can also be attended consecutively after taking the beginner’s retreat in the same summer cycle.

     In the advanced retreat, we advance our knowledge and activities learned in the beginners retreat, such as yoga, hiking and dancing, but also get to do Tai Chi and practicing deep breathing for Alpha Brainwave stress relief, make chapstick from scratch, do Pilates, have lessons on Music Therapy and Art Therapy, Nutrition, and more. Learn about our guest professionals teaching during the Advanced Retreat on our ‘Meat the Team’ Page.
     The most exciting part is that Empowerteen has partnered with an award winning children’s storybook publishing firm in St. Louis for this retreat, and the girls will also spend the week taking all their lessons from both weeks to create and author a collaborative book which will be illustrated with the firm’s award-winning illustrators as well as the collaborative art piece the girls make during camp. It will be professionally published, printed and sold in bookstores and online with the proceeds coming back to the Empowerteen Program to sponsor future tweens at retreats who can’t afford registration. From this they will then have the legacy of having their name as an author of a published children’s book which also features their artwork, teaching the concepts of empathy, gratitude, communication, relationships and conflict resolution.
This is an amazing opportunity and we do hope you will sign her up for the second retreat this summer so she can be empowered by empowering 5-7 year olds! Scholarships are available, if needed.
The tweens beginners retreat focuses on bullying, disconnecting from digital media, making vision boards, and peer-driven topics. The beginners retreat is held before this one on July 10th-14th. Learn more about the beginners retreat here…
