Dear Students, Staff, and Families,
We have big dreams for the summer of 2021!
In this time of uncertainty during a world-wide pandemic, we believe, more than ever, that the arts are essential to children’s lives, helping them explore, make sense of, and contribute to a changing world. Before the pandemic, many of us took education for granted. When it comes to distance education, many of our schools have chosen to focus on “the essentials.” Now more than ever, we must work harder to bring arts experiences back to our kids.
We are all learning together how to live in this new reality. Though Camp 2021 may look different from any other summer in Sitka, we plan to deliver an unforgettable experience. Our guiding light will continue to be our belief that the arts are the most efficient tool we know for building individuals with strong character and creating resilient communities.
We trust that our creativity as artists, with our deep operational experience, and in partnership with a team of health experts, uniquely equips us to innovatively address the challenges of delivering transformational, in-person education. Dream with us by registering your student on January 1.
Why should you donate?
We believe that money should not be a barrier to arts education. In 2019, we awarded more than $90,000 worth of scholarships to over 130 young artists so that they can attend camp. If you are able, please consider donating to our scholarship fund so we can send more kids next year.
