Two Weeks of Fun!

Creative Arts Camp 2021 is designed especially for summer 2021, to encourage social-emotional learning through the arts after a year of hibernation. Dark and mysterious pieces are welcome alongside the bright and bold ones. Guided by our two week-long themes, activities will enable each individual camper to contribute their unique gifts of artistic expression in a safe and creative environment.

  • Week One, July 26-30: Myself
    We will focus on the inner soul and unique person, or simply put, “me.” Campers will create “self-portraits” through songs, movement pieces, and visual art, helping them to self-reflect and express who they are. In appreciating our fellow campers’ individual artistic creations, we will celebrate as a community our similarities and differences.
  • Week Two, August 2-6: My Community
    We will build a connected, creative camp community through song, dance, and visual art. What can we do in our small world to create ripple effects in the big world? Campers have had a year of isolation, and this week we will focus on how to feel safe in our community.

Having Fun and Learning Skills

CAC 2017 violin smile EFrantz WEBThree age-based cohorts (grades 1-2; 3-4; and 5-6) rotate through three arts activity periods, learning skills and creating musical, dance, and visual art pieces. A healthy dose of indoor and outdoor games, breaks, and lunchtime provides plenty of fun and creates strong friendships.

Music: Singing, recorder playing, music reading, trying orchestral instruments, and more.

Dance and Creative Movement: Basic dance steps and styles; explorations of space, time, shape, and weight; and solo, partner, and group creations.

Visual Arts: Drawing, painting, and sculpting your own creations, while learning about famous artists throughout history.
