Sprouting Change Creative Leadership Camp

Sprouting Change is a unique program that balances personal growth and community development through creative and educational activities. The camp is distinct in its collaborative and intentional nature. In order to expose participants to local sustainability opportunities, a diverse group of local initiatives are involved as guest facilitators. Everyday, participants are given free creative time to process topics and discussions. The week ends with the creation of a zine fully designed by the group and is shared with their families and greater community.

Length: 5 days (8:30am-4:30pm)

Audience: Youth (ages 9-12)

Themes: leadership development, self-care, social justice, creative exploration, sustainability
