Project Commotion is proud to present a unique ONLINE summer program that will get kids’ brains and bodies in motion! Our staff of movement and child development 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 2 broad themes:
Imagination Creations (Week 1 & 3)
We will spend two weeks diving into our imaginations! We will become storytellers and change makers through theatre, music, movement, writing, reading and interactive art activities. Our storytelling will allow us to better understand ourselves as individuals and members of our diverse community. This will be a space for tuning into social-emotional well-being and practicing the language of caring for ourselves and each other. We will use our emotions and our senses together to share stories of our ancestors and ourselves and learn from each other’s life experiences and wisdom.
Our Future, Ourselves (Week 2 & 4)
(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 the communities we belong to. We will learn about the Ohlone land we are on and imagine a future from learning of our past. How can we take action to create a just world for all of us? Our senses are connected to the sense we make of the world around us. We will learn about how individuals' brains and bodies are similar and different and how to celebrate and communicate each individuals’ needs. At the end of the week each student will leave camp with a “self/community-care lunchbox” full of tools and activities to help them move through their day with intention and conscientiousness.
