"A Thousand Paper Cranes": Cultivating Compassion

A Thousand Paper Cranes Image

"I would fold a thousand paper cranes for you," poet Shinji Moon declares. Could each of us say that about someone we love? Could we offer that level of compassion to people we've never met, whose lives are vastly different from our own? Most importantly, could we look in the mirror and promise that level of care to ourselves?
Through our writing, deep listening, art-making, movement, and music, we will build community and name the parts of our lives and our world in most need of compassion. (Grades 10-12)

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.

PAYMENT/CANCELLATION POLICY: Due to the popularity of camps and in order to reserve your place, a nonrefundable deposit of $50 is required at the time of registration.  Full payment for the program is due within 30 days of the date of registration (unless a scholarship application has been submitted). If registering for a camp within 30 days of the first day of camp, full payment is due at the time of registration (unless a scholarship application has been submitted). 

Tuition is non-refundable, though partial credit toward future programming may be considered if the student withdraws at least 14 days before the first day of camp.  All credits must be used with one (1) year of receipt.  In the event a class is cancelled or rescheduled due to lack of enrollment, students will be notified as soon as possible and will be given the option to receive a full credit for a future class or a full refund.
