How to get your annual Gala tickets?
Hello Beautiful Souls - kindly continue reading below for more information about this wonderful event that is coming very soon in June - hosted by a very dear friend mine.
Everything you need to know about this Awesome FundRaising event is featured below - and I am sure you will not want to miss out on this amazing Event taking place in Terrace in the Park
So the count down has begun… Camp Estrellitas turns 4 years old!!! Woohoo!!!
I truly can’t believe how quickly the time has passed.
I have to be completely honest with you, Camp almost didn’t happen this year. As you may know I transitioned from being a classroom teacher to becoming a mindfulness coach and staff developer as founder of The New Light Project. It has truly been an amazing journey but as you can imagine starting a movement of any size takes every ounce of energy you’ve GOT!
As I always say “The Struggle is REAL” lol. I thought that stepping away from camp this year would allow me to focus but instead I was completely miserable, I felt empty, like I had lost a part of me.
In all reality losing the camp IS losing a part of who I am. This is my divinely appointed mission, I live and breathe this mission. Aside from my own birth children it is what brings me the most joy and fulfillment. Knowing that my little stars are forever changed by our work, knowing that the seeds that have been planted by You and me will forever change their lives has no price tag (or rest tag in my case) So HERE I AM… once again knocking on the door of your heart.
As you know our little campers count on your generosity for warm meals, fresh water, mindfulness lessons and a summer a lifetime at no cost to the campers. Please once again join me in planting seeds of hope, courage and love in the hearts of our little stars.
This year is more exciting than EVER because as you may know I have undergone a year long Mindfulness Certification program and am bursting with joy to go share all the amazingness I have learned with my little stars.
