This week-long camp is recommended for students aged 10 to 15. Participants will learn to slackline and explore balance in a variety of fun & interesting ways! Learn new skills while having fun & making friends!

Our Venue:
Francine Delaney New School for Children is conveniently located on Brevard Road in West Asheville. It offers all of the amenities neccessary for a fantastic week of camp – including a pine tree lot that will become our “slackline park,” the beautiful Dogwood Building that will serve as our base of operations for the week, a playground, & tons of open space to have fun in! We’ll also be just a short walk from West Asheville Park, where we may take some mini “field trips” throughout the week. Slack-Librium has been offering programming at FDNSC for years and we are excited to host this summer camp on their beautiful property!

Our Instructors:
Jesse Goldman is the founder of Slack-Librium and will be leading this week-long camp. Jesse is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Asheville and has been leading educational programs locally & nationally since 2013. He is deeply passionate about mindfulness, social emotional learning, & experiential education, which he infuses into his teaching & his life. 

Jesse will be assisted by one additional Slack-Librium instructor. All of our instructors undergo background checks and have experience working with youth. We keep a minimum staff:student ratio of 1:8 as we believe in a relationship-based approach to education & adventure. More information on our second Slack-Librium instructor will follow.

Our Curriculum:
Slack-Librium’s unique teaching methods have been developed, tested, & refined through 6+ years of direct experience working with youth. Our programming teaches balance – physically, mentally, & emotionally. Through the use of interactive & experiential instruction we provide students the opportunity to learn valuable lessons through their own direct experience. Our programs help students to develop self-awareness, emotional regulation, self-confidence, body-awareness & physical fitness. Most importantly, we have fun!
