Thanks to a generous donation from the Sonoma County Children’s Village, SCCV, the Child Parent Institute is able to offer our Creative Arts Camp and Explore and Express Arts Week FREE to youth involved in the child welfare system. The mission of SCCV is to harness the power of community and partnership to provide a range of services to strengthen and support children, their families, and former foster youth; to help children heal from trauma; and to preserve the bond between siblings.

Chalkboard Players Creative Arts Camp

July 16 – July 20, 2018 | 10am – 3pm | Ages 8-13

Rohnert Park Community Center | 5401 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park 94928

Camper Showcase: Friday, July 20, 2018 at 2pm

This week-long day camp is especially designed for young people currently involved in the child welfare system. This includes kids placed in resource families, kinship care, group homes, or whose caregivers are participating in court-ordered or voluntary Family, Youth, and Children’s Services. If you have questions, please contact Creative Arts Program Coordinator Dallas Munger at dallasm@calparents.org or (707) 321-3229.

Campers experience diverse creative activities that nurture self-expression while building social and emotional skills. Camp days are filled with improvisation games, songwriting, movement, art projects, and more. Campers participate in daily mindfulness exercises, art journaling, and other practices proven to build resilience and benefit health and well-being.

This camp is designed with sensitivity toward the challenging early lives of our campers. The camp is run by Child Parent Institute’s diverse creative arts troupe Chalkboard Players, teaching artists who guide campers through fun processes of discovery, creation, and collaboration. Families and friends are invited to a showcase at the end of the camp week, featuring student creations and performances.

In this safe, inclusive environment, under sensitive leadership by trauma-informed teaching artists, children experience the freedom of creative self-expression without stigma, the healing and transformative power of art, and the joy of collaboration while enhancing curiosity and empathy. Campers build self-esteem as they explore their identities as creators and the roles of art in their lives and their communities, gaining new perspectives on themselves and their potentials.

Connect with others on a week-long adventure to explore theater, music, visual arts, and more! Find your unique role to play as we get creative to learn about and practice qualities that make strong communities, friends, and leaders. Standard day camp includes ages 8 to 18; our extended Monday through Thursday afternoons are for ages 14 to 18. Families and friends are invited to a camper showcase on Friday at 2pm.

Camp Drama Spectrum offers a nurturing creative home for young people interested in learning more about the arts and having fun together. Through creative collaboration, we'll build social and emotional skills, stretch our imaginations, and learn tools for expressing ourselves. We welcome campers of all skill levels to find their own special way to shine.

Camp Drama Spectrum is a great fit for young people on the autism spectrum, or those with similar social, emotional, or learning challenges. The group experience is ideally suited for campers with some verbal communication skills, and a desire to participate. Our teaching artist team is happy to discuss individual needs or concerns with potential campers, caregivers, or referring parties to help assess capacity to participate and ensure appropriate staffing levels.

Camps are run by CPI’s diverse creative arts troupe of experienced teaching artists, Chalkboard Players. Families are invited to a camper showcase at the end of the week. Campers are invited to participate in ongoing activities throughout the year to keep growing in their arts and their community!

If you have questions, please contact Creative Arts Program Coordinator Dallas Munger at dallasm@calparents.org or (707) 321-3229.
