Our Next Project

We are happy to share that we have started work on our next big project, CAMP! CAMP stands for a Creativity and Mindfulness Practice. It will be a fun & fantastical story-driven approach to sharing these important traits with kids of all ages.

Over the past year, I have really come to value the practice of mindfulness and meditation as part of a balanced life. I wish I had learned about some of these basic concepts at a much younger age. I also believe there's a way to share these lessons in a fun way to encourage the natural creativity and imagination in kids. (Read also: The Importance of Creativity)

When the pandemic and the civil unrest was at its peak, I thought a lot about making sure my work with Mimochai was as helpful and meaningful as possible. I also happened to have an opportunity to put together a summer camp for my niece and nephew, who like most kids were stuck at home since March. Of course, I wanted to do something that would be both fun and helpful for them. In this confluence of events, CAMP was born <3

 

Initial exploration designs for CAMP

I realized I can combine my story & illustration skills with my spiritual practice to create the story I wish I had heard. CAMP will be a combination of an illustrated story, an activity kit, and video lessons. It will take a lot of cues from my favorite games and books to make it fun and something kids actually want to learn!

It's hard to believe that Let's Go Explore is already over two years old. I am hoping to finish CAMP by Summer 2021. I'm very excited to share this with the world once it's ready, and will be sharing the progress along the way!
