Bridge Builders Summer Camp

June 21 – July 28, 2022
M T W Th | 8:30am – 1:00pm
Free for Students Entering 3rd – 8th Grades | Applications Due June 7th
This year Arts @ Large summer camp is centered around the theme of Bridge Builders. Using our Cornerstone of Peacemaking, participants will explore how a variety of art forms can serve as a bridge between conflict and resolution. The Arts @ Large Peacemaking Cornerstone provides an opportunity to encourage self-respect, respect of differences, and social responsibility, while also providing skills and processes that help peacefully manage conflicts. Peacemaking in art encourages the active and open expression of ideas, as well as creating innovative solutions to social challenges.
