Storycamp Summer 2019
Storycamp Sessions 2019
Grades Entering 2nd – 7th | 8:30 – 3:30 Monday-Friday
Storycamp is an open classroom, a project based approach to education that is implicitly child directed and welcomes teachers as co-creators of summer adventure. We provide opportunities to overcome physical and intellectual challenges so that kids build confidence.
The driving forces of our curriculum are play-based, but the intention within that is deeply considered. Primary elements include: connection with nature, circus art, sustainable building, and theater. Storycamp seeks to embolden children, to encourage curiosity and build fresh relationships with a rapidly evolving world. Our activities are designed to facilitate embodiment, vast imagination and the ability to respond creatively and empathetically in moments of spontaneous interaction (i.e. play).
We have a 38-acre campus with a cottonwood forest and open space. We venture out on a variety field trips. Our instructors are professional artists and experienced educators who have worked with children throughout the world.
