ArtReach is a community-supported summer camp program that offers elementary and middle-school students an opportunity to explore their creativity and participate in a variety of artistic disciplines. The program is offered to selected students from School District 43 who face socio/economic barriers and would not be in a position to attend our regular Summer Fun! program.
Each day of this week-long camp, students move and create in an integrated program of drama, music, dance and visual art classes. The camp focuses on teamwork and collaboration as everyone works together to create an informal end-of-the-week performance. This final performance gives participants the opportunity to showcase their new-found skills to family and friends.
ArtReach is fully subsidized and offered at no cost to participants. Students are recommended to the program the principals and teachers of local elementary schools.
