Best of NYC

By Amy Pittner

Females love pampering and style, and what better way to be pampered than body treatments at a luxurious day spa or healing center? These days, even companies catering to the teen set are following suit. Pali Adventures, a Southern California site offering new specialty summer camps to the young, is a prime example. They not only hold recreational sport activities as part of some camp programs, but also offer a variety of unique programs, including a Fashion Design Institute and Spa & Well-being Camp.

The Fashion Design Program is an exceptional way for young people to learn more about fashion and how to creatively express themselves through design. The campers design illustrations, work with fabrics and other materials to assemble garments under their own label. To top it all off, they are able to present their ideas and creations in a fashion show.

The Spa & Well-being Camp gives campers a chance to learn good beauty and health habits, as well as beauty procedures, such as facials, aromatherapy and hot rock massages. Yoga and nutrition education are also offered during this session, along with proper etiquette and meditation. This camp gives girls a chance to feel comfortable in their own skin and to treat themselves well.

Pali offers unique programs that assure that your child will leave learning something new while feeling a sense of adventure. To boot, these camps are unlike any other summer experience. For more information on these and other camp programs, visit
