Camp Description

This unique performing arts camp brings together young people between the ages of 7 and 14 who have experienced the death of a parent to encourage the healing power of creative play. Through the exploration and creation of dance, theatre, and music, Hearts to Art inspires communication and collaboration, fosters emotional growth, and provides friendship, compassion, and community. Through interaction with young people who have experienced a similar loss, campers understand they are not alone. Small group healing sessions are facilitated by professional healing counselors, providing campers a safe time and place to express and share their feelings with peers. There are also licensed healing counselors on site throughout the duration of camp.
