About Summer Camp

All workshops are ideal for K-12 teachers of all subjects.

How do we make sense of the world around us? In this fast, ever-changing world we need to ensure that our students are nimble, resourceful and adaptable. How young people make sense of their world relies on how we creatively communicate its complexities to them.
This Year's Theme

This Year's Theme

This year, Summer Camp is focusing on Core Competencies and key Big Ideas by exploring contemporary issues that our students will face every day and into their futures. This workshop series is the ideal experience you’ll need to set you and your students up for a successful year of openness, curiosity and inclusion. Through four arts-based workshops, build confidence in your ability to engage with students’ critical and creative thinking skills as we focus our lens on personal and social responsibilities through workshops facilitated by experts in their field.
