Project Commotion is proud to present a unique summer program that will get kids’ brains and bodies in motion! Our staff of movement experts will present specialized activities that are designed to challenge youth to expand their physical, social, and cognitive skills in tandem, through:
• multi-sensory embodied approaches to learning
• physical, visual and theater arts
• literacy and language enrichment
Weekly Sessions will explore one of 5 themes:
La Tierra + Indigenous Solidarity Come connect with our earth by exploring through our senses. We will see and touch our planet through trips through SF’s outdoor spaces and hands-on art creations with natural materials. Our physical explorations will allow us to build an empathetic embodied understanding and connection with the world around us.
We will spend the week diving into our imaginations, becoming storytellers and change makers through theatre, music, movement, writing, and reading. Our storytelling will reach the outside world when we visit local libraries and theatres. At the end of the week, we will showcase our stories in a group sharing session.
Family Trees, Global Roots
Getting to know the world around us will allow us to better understand ourselves as individuals and members of our diverse community. We will learn through telling stories, tasting foods, and playing games from around the world. This week will culminate in a potluck with foods from our families’ backgrounds.
Nutrition, movement, and self care will take the stage this week as we dive into learning about our bodies, brains, and what fuels us. We will learn about our brain and body differences and how to celebrate and communicate each individuals’ needs. At the end of the week each student will leave camp with a “self-care lunchbox” full of tools and activities to help them move through their day with intention and conscientiousness.
Our Future, Ourselves
(Re)imagining ourselves in relationship to community through individual and group goal setting and creation of action-plans. We will have opportunities to focus on our own individual identities as well as the identity of community that is created at camp. This week will culminate in communal sharing of our goals and future plans.
Camps will be split into two groups based on age. All students will engage in developmentally appropriate activities in their smaller groups as well as working on mixed-age group play during lunch time and field trips. Camp Critters: 4 1/2 - 6 years old
Camp Chrysalis: 7 - 14 years old
Camp Commotion is open to youth of all abilities. Our program is designed so that each child receives individual attention during each session and so that activities can be targeted towards children’s specific needs. We maintain a low student:teacher ratio and a small group learning environment, with a weekly maximum of 8 students per age group.
Prerequisite: Students who enroll in Camp Commotion are required to attend weekly classes at PC during the Winter, Spring, and/or Summer sessions prior to the start of camp (January – June 2019).
