Artrageous Artreach Summer Camp
Here's what our FREE Summer Camp
is all about:
Purpose: To fill the hearts and minds of children with the healing power of the arts. To allow children a safe space to express themselves creatively in order to encourage brain development and support participants’ ability to lead healthy and creative lives. To offer parents a free option for a safe, educational arts camp for one week during the summer.
Experience: No art experience is necessary, just an open mind and a willingness to explore your creative sides.
Goals: To engage campers in an inclusive camp experience that will allow them to explore many different art forms and live arts performances. To provide campers with unique and inspiring experiences, skills and memories that will enhance their lives and encourage their mental and behavior wellbeing. To offer an enriching week of performance and instruction that provides them with a healthy example of teamwork, inclusivity and their potential to accomplish new things.
Reach: Our goal is to grow the Artrageous Artreach Camp to include more students each year. We intend to focus on students in the low-income bracket to provide a safe and fun learning environment to children who may not have access to such an environment otherwise. Each student is given the opportunity to include their families on a daily basis. Campers will be chosen by lottery via the Artrageous Artreach website. The lottery will be weighted towards the underserved zip codes.

Each day the Artrageous Artreach Campers will focus on a value, such as creativity, kindness or teamwork, and the activities would relate to that value. The campers would bring projects home to do with their families. Curriculum connections include: Art literacy, teamwork, inclusion, public speaking, creativity and social and emotional learning (SEL). Activities include: arts and crafts, puppetry, movement, performance and costume design. During workshop sessions we will work with the 5 Episode “Master’s Series” created by Artrageous Artreach and complete the accompanying study guides.
