Campfires, sing-alongs, canoe rides, bunk beds– those are so retro. Today’s summer camp of choice? A totally bug-free Spa Camp.

It’s never too early to start learning about the importance of caring for one’s body, which is why Flying Beauticians founder Nona Daron and Team LOLA founder Kim Juarez decided to create the Spa Camp For Kids. This summer, for three separate weeks in June, July and August, young girls can attend a Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. camp that offers girls a fun and educational program which promotes a healthy and active lifestyle.

The camp includes:

  • One daily hour of stretching and outdoor exercise
  • Nutrition facts lessons
  • Vegan manicure/pedicure
  • Natural, homemade skin care remedies
  • Massages, foot and hand treatments
  • Aromatherapy

Dates: July 14 to 18, and August 18 to 22, 2008
Cost: $375 per person (meals not included)
Location: Flying Beauticians Skin Care Studio 18 E. Blithedale, Suite 11 Mill Valley, CA
For Reservations and information, call 415-381-8134

Daron founded Flying Beauticians in 1981 with her mother, Polina Gerardo. Flying Beauticians has studios in San Francisco and in Mill Valley that offer beauty services including facials, waxings, massages, and more. For more information, visit

Team LOLA, founded by Juarez, offers nutrition and fitness education for women and girls in a non-competitive team environment which encourages camaraderie and fun. Juarez, a mother of four, created Team LOLA to address the need for sound nutrition education and physical activity programs for children and their families. For more information, visit
