We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For
It's hard to see the world as it is and wonder how things can change for the better. It's hard enough trying to figure out our own identities with all the voices telling us who and how and what we should be! But what if we could believe, as June Jordan says, that "we are the ones we have been waiting for"?
Through writing, reading, and art we will explore our own inner voices and dig into our own power, wielding our unique, confident, and kind words to change our homes and communities for the better.
Our week-long summer camps, for young people in 4th-12th grades, 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.
This Virtual Summer Camp offering, via Zoom, has appropriately modified schedules and activities that maintain our focus on creativity and community-building. Intentionality will be maintained virtually through our regular WWf(a)C practices. Craft and writing prompt packets will be available for pickup and snail mail/email prior to the start of camp! Your camp facilitator will provide specific details regarding this online community prior to the start of camp. We can't wait to see you this summer!
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. All credits must be used within one (1) year of receipt.
