Expressive Arts 
 
Follow your art to camp this summer! Kids will explore and experiment with a variety of expressive art forms. This camp will expose kids to a variety of expressive art disciplines, including visual arts, creative writing, dance or movement, music, and dramatic expression. As kids engage with interdisciplinary expressive arts, they will discover how to use their own internal experiences as catalysts for creativity and innovation. Kids will be enlightened on how creative engagements are fundamental to the human experience, offering an array of benefits and opportunities for cognitive gains, emotional maturity, improved self-efficacy, and increased empathy. Explore your own expressions with us this week in Expressive Arts!
 
Fantastic Jurassic
 
Roar into the summer with dinosaur science! Kids will learn about different dinosaurs and how they impacted the environment while putting on their excavation gloves and getting dirty as they uncover fossils and participate in a dinosaur dig. They will be using their knowledge of dinosaur biology to create skeletons while envisioning the beauty of these prehistoric creatures with painted masks. Kids will be applying responsibility and empathy this week as they learn how to be good environmental stewards and respect the world they live in, keeping it safe for generations of humans and animals to come. Get ready to roar with excitement this week with Fantastic Jurassic!
 
Engineering with Empathy

Open your hearts and minds as we create and engineer with empathy! Kids will get to showcase their maker skills while crafting projects that are intended to make people smile! They will use the design thinking process to brainstorm, blueprint, and construct a work of art or a useful invention to make the lives of their loved ones easier. In a year like 2020, spreading love and joy has never been so essential to our world. This theme has an extra special emphasis on reinforcing the importance of social and emotional learning with the intention of creating more connected communities. Engage with others and make the world a little brighter this week in Engineering with Empathy!
