Rainbow Camp Program

  • Week One, July 9-13, Soul/Sol. An exploration of the Soul and Sol (sun): We jump into Summer Fun. We explore ourselves and our bodies with mindfulness and yoga and drumming. We leap into summer with sprinklers and the shining sun. We will be learning Spanish through music with Dos Padres, playing games from around the world and focusing on bodies, breathing, compassion and joy.
  • Week Two, July 16-20, Super Hero Camp. Who are our heroes and why? Through books and discussions we will discover the true traits of heros and how everyone can be a super hero. We will be designing capes, creating magical names and learning to empower ourselves to be our BEST selves. We will interview and meet everyday heroes in our lives. We will embark on Super Hero adventures that allow us to collaborate and use all our amazing skills!
  • Week Three, July 23-27, Rainbow World : Little People Big Dreams. The colors of our world are plentiful and stunning. This week we celebrate ART in a big way through some of our favorite artists and musicians. We will create our own treasured pieces along with large murals we create together. We will breathe and listen for the colors that speak to us through music and simply spill into our ART. Please be prepared for LOTS of paint and LOVE.
  • Week Four, July 30-August 3, Vogue Week (Pride Week). “Voguing allows you to be anyone you want to be” This week we go Big and Bold. We are who we are and we celebrate. We will learn how to support each other and lift each other up while appreciating our similarities and differences. We will be creating dance families and houses. We will dive into the history of voguing and self expression. We will practice our poses and learn the roots of voguing, while incorporating martial arts, gymnastics, ballet and pantimone into our dance. Be ready for catwalks and join us for our Kiki Ball.
  • Week Five, August 6-10, Why, Why, Why and It’s Not FAIR (Upstander Week). We all have strong beliefs and soo many questions- YES PLEASE! We are the Movers and Shakers. We will ask our questions and empower ourselves to find the answers. We are the scientists, the explorers, the detectives. We will dig deep into truths and misconceptions. We will challenge our beliefs, we will question what is fair and what is right. We will ask questions and maybe find some answers. Join us for a week of questions, science, experiments, inventions and social activism! Let’s Stand Up!!
  • Week Six, August 13-August 17, Invisible Stories Week. Everyone and everything has a story. We will be exploring our own stories and those of our families and community. We will learn the Invisible story of Trees. We will discover an underground network of friendship, communication, caring and love through the roots of community. We will dig deep and uncover the mysteries behind what we think we see. We will take the time and moments needed to see the unseen and hear the unheard and create the uncreated.
