Young people have an incredible capacity to learn, inspire and achieve. Engaging in music, dance, theatre or visual arts provide kids with the competitive edge they need to achieve success in every aspect of their lives. Arts camp is a unique environment where children can develop the following skills:

1. Innovation & Creative Thinking – Campers develop creativity and ‘out of the box’ thinking by, being challenged to recite a monologue in 3 different ways, create a painting that represents a memory, or compose a new rhythm to enhance a piece of music.

2. Problem-Solving –Campers get use to approaching a problem as an exciting challenge. The act of learning a dance, creating a sculpture, or developing a comedy sketch, presents campers with exciting challenges to tackle everyday. When they are successful, they will no longer see problems as barriers.

3. Teamwork – Because many arts are collaborative in nature, campers practice working together, sharing responsibility, and compromising with others to accomplish a common goal.

4. Commitment & Discipline – The incredible achievements children experience at arts camp help them realize that extraordinary things can occur when you are dedicated and persevere through challenges. They learn to associate dedication with a feeling of accomplishment, and the warm feeling of an audience’s applause.

5. Trying New Things – This is where art and camp go well together. Camp creates a supportive environment; art is not black or white, but has many shades of grey. At arts camp, children are encouraged to try ideas and activities, with the knowledge that not all of them will work, and that is ok!

6. Non-Verbal Communication – In theatre and dance, campers experience different ways of moving and how those movements communicate different emotions. Campers are also coached on performance skills – developing necessary skills to communicate effectively with an audience.

7. Building Healthy Relationships –At arts camp, children interact with each other in ways they wouldn’t normally. They dance together, play music, relate as various characters, and collaborate to create art pieces. Arts camp has the power to form strong life-long bonds based on a mutual respect for one another’s opinions and values.

These are 7 skills that we teach at Horizon Arts Camp. Everyday we are excited to come to camp to share our passion for the arts and inspire by example. At Horizon Arts Camp we want your kids to have the confidence and drive to achieve their goals, tackle life’s challenges, and discover what their unique talents are!
