Museo de las Americas Summer Camp (MASC) 2016

SUMMER CAMP AGES 4-12

 

“Going Native”

Museo de las Americas invites you to get lost in the heartbeats of ceremonial drums, feel the clay of the earth, explore the movements of ritual dance and embrace the past through oral tradition. “Going Native” is a rich exploration into the native cultures of the southwest, the Apache, Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo, and Zuni.

At the heart of summer camp is an arts-integrated curriculum that engages all of the senses to build cultural competencies and unlock new, vibrant understandings of academic content. Through the four arts disciplines: visual arts, theatre, music and dance, students engage in the creative process to actively construct knowledge in non-arts academic areas: math, science, language arts and social studies.

For three consecutive fun-filled weeks students will uncover the many cultures and contributions of Colorado’s first inhabitants through experiences that are collaborative, reflective and deeply motivating.

Los Jovenes Leadership Lab – A fusion of creativity, Technology & Mentoring to Cultivate Lasting Leadership Skills in Our Youth.

In this immersive two part leadership program students will elevate their leadership skills through mentorships, art, and technology. Upon completion of the four week program, students will leave feeling accomplished and empowered to create positive change.

Part One: June 13th – June 17th

The first week of Los Jovenes Leadership Lab will operate as an “incubator” for the future arts leaders, infusing technology and the arts to equip students with transferable digital and cooperative leadership skills that they can apply in their academic and personal lives. Students will create digital art and follow role models at the museum to learn the various functional roles of arts leadership, delving into subjects such as communications, problem solving, teamwork and technology.

Part Two Monday, June 20th – Friday, July 8th

After week one, students will have the opportunity to use their newly cultivated leadership skills and talents as they fulfill the role of Teen Captains for Museo’s summer arts camp for ages 4 through 12. Throughout the following three-week camp, they will be in charge of providing technical and logistical support to camp staff, mentoring campers through their social emotional needs, and tutoring campers with use of technology during digital art lessons, further reinforcing the concepts and skills they have learned and advancing their abilities to communicate and lead.
