Hello music therapy, special education, art education, art therapy, music education, and creative arts and expressive therapy students!
We will be offering Rainbow Camp twice in back-t0-back weeks to better serve our growing client base in Northeast Ohio this Summer 2017! Our Lake County Area Rainbow Camp will run M-F June 19-23 rom 4-6pm at 435 SOM Center Road in Mayfield, OH. And our Summit County Area Rainbow Camp will run M-F June 26-30, 2017 from 4-6pm at 8575 S. Freeway drive in Macedonia, OH.
To ensure camp is our best camp yet, The Groovy Garfoose is seeking student volunteers with relevant education experience eager to gain experience working with teens and adults 15 and up of all abilities. Students will have opportunities to support and encourage camper participation (i.e., staying on task, passing out instruments, providing hand-over-hand assistance , socialization) in addition to observing two board-certified music therapists in action (Ellen Antes, MT-BC & Bonnie Hayhurst, MT-BC). Camp is only as successful as the people that run it, and we hope you will consider helping us make it AWESOME! Here’s what that entails…
As in Summers past, we are anticipating 10-20 campers per camp. Each day of camp will start as a group. During this social time, we will learn our theme song and introduce the color theme for that day. Then we will divide campers into three small groups. Each group will rotate through 30 minutes of creative arts experiences (Dance, Art, Music). The end of each camp will conclude with a group experience wrapping up the theme of the day. Volunteers will spend the entire week supporting one group of campers through each arts experience for consistency.
We are looking for energetic students willing to jump in and learn even if you are new to our camp or special needs in general. We ask that volunteers arrange their own transportation to and from camp and that you be willing and able to commit to the entire week of camp to provide consistent support and familiarity to campers. Interested but still have more questions? Please contact Ellen Antes, MT-BC at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
