As women, there are times we each need to swim away from our daily roles to experience a place that allows for our true inner being to float. 

Young girls also need a venue where they can experience an atmosphere that encourages personal empowerment and self~love. Are you a young girl that loves to swim like a mermaid? Do you enjoy learning personal development skills? Would you like to learn how to sew your own mermaid tail, learn to grow healthy foods, meditate like a mermaid, or learn the exact techniques that the Weeki Wachee Springs Mermaids perform? There are many delightful pursuits to learn when attending Mermaid Junkie Academy.

In order for a girl to be truly happy, she must love herself unconditionally. Mermaid Junkie Academy is a curriculum curated to remind girls of how to follow their heart. They will regain an understanding of who they are: a physical extension of Source Energy. It all begins with this reminder, which is often forgotten.

Mermaid Junkie Academy is the only workshop camp/retreat of its kind. It is a true north compass for inspiring girls and women to navigate through their lives in phases. The curriculum that was created is an all-encompassing program based on the four human developments: Mental, Social/Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual. After the girls complete their workshop experience they will swim away with a deep knowledge of their self~worth, personal empowerment and capability of navigating their voyage through life. They will indeed be equipt in knowing how to follow their heart, be inspired and have the treasure trove tools to align with their dreams and desires.

We all desire to be truly happy, no matter the age. We also want to know how to attain it.
