Creative Arts Camps
At our Creative Arts Camps, we facilitate creative activities that focus on restoration. Using principles of music, art, dance, and drama therapy, we along with our partners have witnessed incredible transformation from our campers - reclaiming their identity. (Mention something about how we partner with organizations in Cambodia?)
Restoration through Art
At our Creative Arts Camps, campers experience the restoration that takes place through the arts. We have seen art become a vehicle for processing and releasing pain – an experience that deepens and progresses the restoration process. Trauma becomes less powerful and hope becomes more tangible.
Reclaiming through Dance
Dancing is a powerful experience for our campers. After experiencing mental and physical immobilisation, dancing brings back a sense of agency. Using their bodies to express stories, struggle, and beauty, our campers get to reclaim their bodies as their own.
Reviving through Music
Music has revived a sense of voice in our campers. As they engage their entire mind, breath, and motor skills in the art of producing sound together, they experience agency, community, and individuality.
Catch a glimpse into some of the creativity – music, dance, & videography – from our volunteer camp leaders in 2019. They taught the campers this song and choreography based on the theme restored identity.
