Agape’s Mindful Summer Program for children is the week of July 10th to 14th, 2023 at the United Parish of Auburndale in Newton.  Program hours are from 9am-2pm. Children bring their own lunch, and are provided a healthy snack. Children ages 6-11 are welcome to enroll, with priority given to Waltham residents. Reach out to Rachel ( or Tara ( with any questions or concerns.  You can apply to enroll children in the program at this link (or apply using the Spanish application form here). Tuition for this Mindfulness summer program is $150 per week, per child. Full and partial scholarships are available. This is a non-religious program focused on teaching mindfulness that is open to all children regardless of religious/spiritual background. 

A sample day for children includes an opportunity to engage age-appropriately in varied forms of mindfulness, including discovering nature, making music, art, crafting, theater, and creative forms of mindfulness.  Staff and guest presenters share mindful practices such as movement yoga, mindful walking, mindfulness of feelings and emotions, and storytelling.  Children are taught mindfulness tools for how to hold peace in challenging or frightening situations.  And of course, there are ample opportunities throughout the day for mindful games, fun, and play!

This Agape program is thanks to the support of a “Faith in Our Future” grant from the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ. Agape is grateful to offer resources to children and youth to help ground and center in the beauty of the present moment amidst the chaos of daily life.  

Agape is a community of “contemplatives in action.”  Prioritizing the contemplative dimension of spirituality through mindfulness and meditation, Agape seeks to be of service through offering mindfulness and meditation workshops and trainings in a variety of settings in Waltham and beyond.
