In this online summer camp, Lindsey, from World-Changing Kids, will be joined by her friends Heather, from Here and Now Studio, and Nancy, from Practice Making Art. We will talk about social justice issues and actions we can take to help make things better, practice yoga and mindfulness, and expand our creativity through artistic projects. We will help the kids build their confidence, leadership skills, communication skills, and knowledge of real world issues. And we will provide you (the parent) with some time to yourself … to work or just enjoy a break nearby in the house … knowing that your children are engaged in a meaningful, fun, inspiring activity.
The theme for our World-Changing Kids’ work for this week of camp is Canadian Social Justice Heroes. We will learn about different people who are doing great work making the world a better place, talk about the actions they are taking, and even interview some guest experts!
Nancy will guide the kids through simple art based activities that will help them practice being in the moment and trusting their creative self.
Heather will lead the kids in yoga and mindfulness activities. She will also lead kids through making their own fun-to-eat snacks (a list of ingredients will be provided at the time of registration so that parents can stock up ahead of time).
The schedule and flow for the week will be very flexible and led by the children as much as possible. So, there might be additional fun added to the above description – depending on where our conversations go.
The group will be capped at 15 families. The format will be relaxed and understanding of the fact that 2.5 hours of online learning is a lot. There will be breaks between the sessions where the kids will be free to move around and have a snack. We will make sure that we are engaging all the kids in the style of learning that works best for them.

The camp will take place through Zoom. The meeting link will be emailed to participants on the Sunday before the camp begins.
