LEAD FACILITATOR REVIEW

Ahmad was amazing! I loved that he treated each kid as an individual and worked with them to support and challenge their skills.

2021 SUMMER CAMP REVIEW

They are more in touch with nature and like teaching what they learned at home. They are more adventurous, and were inspired to do different things they were not used to.

Introduction

Our Summer Arts and Wellness Camp is designed to introduce children ages 5-12 to different art forms inside the studios and outside in nature! Exploring our local landscape, creek, and trails for inspiration and opportunities to discover new materials from nature in the summer! Our campers will engage with nature, art programming and learn wellness practices through our daily gratitude circle, art and mindfulness activities, reflection time, and team-building games. 

 

Participants will learn how to use various mediums inside and outside, and decide on several projects to complete throughout the session both individually and as a group inside and outside the studios.

 

The Summer Arts & Wellness Camp is fun and educational as we explore another season at Soulspace and the Sage Street Mill! Students will leave with a renewed sense of community, connect with friends, and leave with a strong foundation in fun arts and wellness practices!

 

Campers will have daily activities and projects. The camp introduces students to the fun of experimentation in arts through drawing and painting, storybook making, making site-specific work in nature, and multi-media art through hands-on project-based learning, and nature exploration along our trails and outdoor space. During the summer camp, we go swimming and on hikes regularly. Our team of dedicated facilitators works with each camper individually and as a group to develop their wellness toolbox through various activities and techniques! 

 

Campers can only choose to participate in full-time enrollment.

I am a senior student at Bennington college, studying dance, public action, visual arts and music. I am very excited to share simple embodiment tools such as improvisational dancing and breathing techniques. I am hoping to share a lot of time doing a variety of activities with you all!

I love getting to know the kids, I have a lot to share and so much more to learn from them!

I am committed to dedicating my entire life to visual arts and education. These two things are what inspire me the most. I study Visual Arts and various languages at Bennington College. Prior to coming to the United States I have studied at the United World College in Italy. I also am from Russia, born and raised there. Most of my art projects are inspired by my upbringing in Russia and are exploring social issues in my home country. I used to work as a curator assistant in an independent gallery back home, and I am excited to bring my experience to The Mill! :)

I've spent my whole life here at The Mill. I love nature, arts, and insects, and I  love sharing my knowledge with people around me. I worked as an assistant art teacher at the local VSNB elementary school, and I have also been a counselor for last year's awesome Wellness Camp, I just finished my first year of college at Mass College of Arts and Design, and I'm really excited to be working here! I am really looking forward to exploring and showing the different trails and areas on the property and having a blast finding crayfish and dragonflies and making natural sculptures in the trails with the kids!

I'm a student in the 6th-grade class at the North Bennington school, I enjoy spending time with kids and experimenting with art, and developing my creativity. I have attended the Sage Street Mill camp in the past couple of years, and had a great experience!

I'm excited to learn about printmaking and spend time with the kids. I'm also very excited to be a part of the group activities and arts and crafts projects that the kids participate in and choose to do. I can’t wait to be part of the team of facilitators to make sure the kids have a good time and a lot of fun.

Join the fun!
