Ellen and I are SO excited to announce the return of Summer Camp at The Groovy Garfoose!  After taking last Summer off, we are thrilled to share that we are offering not one but TWO camps in TWO different counties to better serve our growing client base in Lake County and Summit County, Ohio.

If you are new to The Groovy Garfoose Summer Camps, each are designed for teens and adults with special needs ages 15 and up to express, engage and feel empowered through intentional music, art and dance experiences. The beauty of the arts being there is no wrong note, no wrong color and no wrong step in creating something as unique as each of the campers we are privileged to serve. This Summer 2017 we are proud to offer:

Our Lake County Rainbow Camp will be held June 19-23, 2017 from 4-6pm daily at 435 SOM Center Rd. Mayfield, Ohio and will be lead by Ellen Antes and Bonnie Hayhurst. And our Summit County Rainbow Camp will be held June 26-30, 2017 from 4-6pm daily at 8575 S. Freeway Dr Macedonia, Ohio and Ellen and I will lead this one, too.

Each day of camp will begin with 15 minutes learning our theme song and the color(s) of the day.  Next, campers will break into three small groups and rotate through 30 minutes each of music, art and dance experiences led by Ellen and Bonnie and some amazing college art students from Kent State. The end of the day will wrap with an immersive music, art and dance review.
Registration is now open and will be capped at 20 campers per camp.  Camps fill up fast so secure your spot today by clicking the register button below!

Since we offered our first creative arts Summer camp back in 2011, our fans, families, friends (and even a celebrity or two!) have helped us raise over $6000 to cover all of our camp expenses and keep the out of pocket costs to camper families low for 5 straight Summers.  And with your help, we hope to do it again in 2017, too!  This year we are setting a goal to raise $2000 for Rainbow Camp (that’s $1k per camp) by June 1, 2017.  When you donate to Rainbow Camp, you will receive an exclusive video thank you message from campers the week after camp via email.  AND you will be entered to win one of 5 Groovy Garfoose SWAG prizes!  5 Winners will be drawn at random on Thursday, June 1, 2017 via our GG Facebook Page!  To donate, click the donate button below and you will be directed to PayPal to support GG Summer camp.  You can also support our fundraising efforts by sharing our donate page on Facebook and Twitter.  Bring on SUMMER!
