due to drastic changes in cdc's coronavirus guidelines, Camp ARIA will launch in-person in 2022.
Camp ARIA: Exploring Social Justice Through the Arts is a 2-week virtual day camp for youth ages 5 to 12 years old.
Campers will explore their creativity, express their individuality, and take artistic risks in a vibrant, supportive community of learners. They will participate in a structured arts-integrated, social justice and literacy program that builds arts skills and supports social-emotional learning. Our child-centered pedagogy addresses collective trauma, identity development, community building, and restorative justice.
Camp ARIA will include music, dance, theater, visual arts, yoga, and mindfulness. Some experiences will involve the whole cohort, while other classes will be course and subject-specific, and aimed at the developmentally appropriate age group. Our Camp leverages the talents and resources of San Francisco Opera, as campers are immersed in a rich experience of shared learning, collective inquiry, and creative expression.
