OFFSITE: Audrey Monke, Happy Campers

Monday, May 20, 2019 - 7:00pm

Kennolyn Camps is excited to be hosting Audrey Monke, author of Happy Campers: Raising Kids who Become Thriving Adults, for an evening of education. This free event, cosponsored by Gateway School and Bookshop Santa Cruz, will take place at New Brighton Middle School Performing Arts Complex, 250 Washburn Avenue, Capitola.

Audrey "Sunshine" Monke, mother of five and camp owner-director, shares nine powerful parenting techniques-inspired by the research-based practices of summer camp-to help kids thrive and families become closer.

Research has proven that kids are happier and gain essential social and emotional skills at camp. A recognized parenting expert, Monke distills what she's learned from thousands of interactions with campers, camp counselors, and parents, and from her research in positive psychology, to offer intentional strategies parents can use to foster the benefits of camp at home.

Our screen-obsessed, competitive society makes it harder than ever to raise happy, thriving kids. But there are tried-and-true methods that can help. Instead of rearing a generation of children who are overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and who struggle to become independent, responsible adults, parents can create a culture that promotes the growth of important character traits and the social skills kids need for meaningful, successful lives.
