When the Walls Come Down

Sometimes, what feels like the safest way to exist in life is to surround ourselves with barriers of our own making. But if everyone builds a wall around their hearts, how do we get to a place of connection? How do we let our walls down in order to extend that same opportunity to others? Through our writing, art-making, and welcoming of wisdom keepers, we will excavate our walls and open our hearts. (Grades 7-9)
Our week-long summer camps, for young people in 4th-12th grades and young adults 18+, combine the art of writing and other modes of artistic enrichment to enhance self-esteem and build skills in creative self-expression. Programs are designed to help strengthen participants' authentic voices, develop their ability to speak out through writing and community-building, and deepen their belief in their own creative intelligence.
Our camps are open to young women, girls, and trans and gender nonconforming (TGNC) youth.
