2021 Summer Theatre & Cultural Enrichment STEAM Camp
Beginning June 21 – August 12, 2021, Bishop Arts Theatre Center will offer an eight-week, exploratory program designed for youth ages 6 – 12. Students enrolled in our program are engaged in theatre, dance, visual arts, music, and life skill workshops led by master teaching artists. Young people who participate and attend these workshops have an opportunity to use artistic expression as a means to unlock the mysteries of various cultures, enlarge their view of the world, and build lasting communities.
Our work aims to combat summer learning loss, and it closes the achievement gap between marginalized communities. With the decline in math and reading scores due to disruptions from the pandemic, our goal is to implement art in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), thereby creating STEAM opportunities for our campers. All programming will be focused on improving academics. STEAM education is vital in teaching youth how to integrate analytical thinking and creative thinking in learning. In addition to STEAM programming, we plan to amplify our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) activities. SEL provides learning experiences that enable students to acquire skills in self-management, conflict resolution, perseverance, empathy, and teamwork.
Every week we also challenge our campers to read a new book that corresponds with our Life Skills partners. We strive to benefit the whole child.
