How to Love YourSelfie Camp Coming to Burbank, Teaching Self-Love and Self-Awareness to Youth

How to Love YourSelfie Coming to Burbank September 22

Breaking the Chains Foundation (BTCF), a non-profit organization committed to the prevention of body-focused and mental well-being stigmas is bringing their youth day camp to Burbank on September 22.

Serving youth ages 8-18, the How to Love YourSelfie (HTLYS) Camp is a day of community and connection where kids can learn to embrace their unique qualities through self-awareness, self-love, self-enrichment, creativity, empowerment, unlimited potential, and fun. 

Tickets to the camp are $100 but BTCF is raising money so that they can provide all-access passes for interested youth for the entirety of the day, as well as covering other camp expenses. To sponsor a child and support the program, you can donate here.

The camp day will include different stations for creative and artistic outlets, cooking, and health and wellness activities.  Participants will be able to travel to each venue station which will be led by BTCF board members, ambassadors and celebrities.
