Calling all music therapy, art therapy, art education and special education college students…
GG Summer Camp is BACK! And we need YOU! We are so excited to offer our 8th camp This is Me: Music, Art, & Dance Camp this Summer 2019!
To ensure this is our best camp yet, The Groovy Garfoose is seeking student volunteers with relevant education training eager to gain experience working with teens and adults 15 and up of all abilities. Volunteers 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 music therapists and art educators in action. 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 movie 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 volunteers willing to jump in and learn even if you are new to our camp or special needs in general. Volunteers must arrange their own transportation to and from camp and be willing and able to commit to the entire week of camp to provide consistent support and familiarity to campers.
