Youth Summer Camp  (10-14 years)

Monday – Friday, Jul 17 – Jul 28 10:00am-4:00pm, 10/$200. The focus of the camp will be self-awareness and creative expression through art, movement, and body awareness. Using all kinds of mixed media, from painting, writing, photography etc., to more large scale community projects, we will have fun finding new ways to explore the arts. The second week we will rise up to the challenge of outdoor exploration! The group will plan the final activity of the last day of camp collaboratively. Outdoor options can include Wild Play, kayaking or other ideas the group comes up with together. We will also explore new sports and fun ways to move our bodies. Call 250-382-4604 to register
