Hearts to Art Summer Day Camp in Chicago
A free day camp for young people who have experienced the death of a parent
The Auditorium Theatre is hosting Session 2 of Hearts to Art Summer Day Camp on July 5 to 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This session is for youth ages 11 to 14 (entering sixth through ninth grade).
Hearts to Art will be held at the Vittum Theater, 1012 N. Noble St., in Chicago.
Hearts to Art performing arts campers will work on developing skills in acting, movement, improvisation, singing, and more through fun and exciting classes. Hearts to Art activities also focus on:
- Encouraging the healing power of creative play
- Inspiring communication and collaboration
- Fostering emotional growth
- Providing friendship, compassion and community
Through interaction with young people who have experienced a similar loss, campers understand they are not alone. Small group creative activities are facilitated by professional healing counselors, providing campers a safe time and place to express and share their feelings with peers. Healing counselors are also on-site throughout the duration of camp.
