Winter Break Camp Fun! 

As kids oftentimes tend to get bored after the first week of Christmas vacation, we thought we might break up their days a little bit by putting together a curriculum of dance and arts activities for Winter Break Camp 2013 at the Cook Arts Center. For two hours January 2nd - January 4th, we had a full camp roster that included 20 neighborhood students working on their break dance moves as well their arts abilities - so much fun! On the last day of camp, a Saturday, students were given the opportunity to escape the classrooms and explore the Grand Rapids Art Museum's Realism/Surrealism exhibit on a field trip. Students were also invited to partake in some post-tour arts activities and hot chocolate at the end of the day. They loved it! We loved seeing them engaging in meaningful activities, too, and were thankful for the GRAM's support as well as that of our beloved volunteers.  

A special thank you to all who helped make Winter Break Camp 2013 a success!
