NYA Summer to Thrive Series on Instagram LIVE

June 9, 2020: North Yarmouth Academy (NYA) is excited to announce a new Instagram Live series for parents and kids called Summer to Thrive. Summer to Thrive seeks to give kids and families tools for thriving, learning, and having fun in their back yards in this disrupted summer.

The show features Ian Ramsey (Director of NYA’s Kauffmann Program in Environmental Writing and Wilderness Exploration) in conversation with a variety of experts in the fields of mental health, outdoor adventure, and performance.

The first episode will take place on Tuesday, June 9 at 7:00 p.m. on NYA’s Instagram page. In this episode, Ian and NYA Counselor, Cindy Hould, will talk about strategies for kids and families to have a great summer.

The next episode is on Wednesday, June 24 at 7:00 p.m., and Ian will discuss mindset and self-talk with Danielle Snyder, an Oregon-based coach, ultrarunner, and social worker who coaches world-class athletes on mental strategies for success.

We hope to see you on Instagram LIVE tonight and on future episodes of this series!
