 Mentorship Opportunities Guidelines 

Summer Camps - In A Nutshell

Art Camps - Kim's afternoon art camps (12:30-4:00, M-F) encourage children to embark on an artistic journey, inspired by each week's fun theme. She strives to teach her campers to be creative problem solvers. There are no mistakes in art!

Writing Camps - Angie's morning writing camps (9:00-12:30, M-F) are enriching and educational, not dry or academic. Games and activities will be used to inspire creative thinking and to practice phonics (and grammar skills!) that will refine each child's writing. Campers will complete a unique piece of writing each day. 

Spanish Camp - Angie's morning Spanish camp (July 9-13, 9:00-12:30) is designed for beginners and veterans alike. All instruction will be in Spanish  and presented in such a visual way that any camper can follow along. Experienced speakers are welcome to respond to and help beginners, as well.

I just have to share with you that the kids are having such a great time with you in writing camp. On the ride home they all talk about it with such excitement. Thank you for making this so much fun for them!

We love all of the artwork our son has made at your camp. My parents have made copies and framed them. I LOVED his coyote! I think your camp is great for him. Thank you!
