Creative Skill Builders Summer Camp
Join creative skill builders summer camp! The 4-day skill builders camp will combine art therapy techniques, Mindfulness Based strategies, yoga and nature-based experiences and games to foster self-awareness, increase self-expression, create opportunities to expand social skills, increase body awareness, explore positive and negative feelings including how they manifest physically and emotionally, as well as develop coping strategies to manage daily life experiences.

This is a therapeutic educational program designed to enhance emotional literacy skills, while building resilience to manage the waves of positive and negative feelings that arise in our day-to-day experiences.

Outcomes of participating in this group include an increased sense of confidence in expressing oneself, practice with perspective taking, and skill building through creativity and mindfulness. This fun and interactive camp will provide explicit opportunities to practice healthy social skill development through a variety of modalities: play, art, team-building activities, role-playing, and movement activities to name a few.

During the camp participants will work to create their own skill builder tool bag to bring home at the conclusion of camp. The skills tool bag will provide participants with a tangible reminder of their time at CSB camp. The camp will be structured to include a combination of creative arts experiences, a variety of mindfulness practices, yoga, nature-based experiences, and cooperative games. (Some games will be water based!). All art/yoga/mindfulness materials are included with the camp.
