Creative Connections: An Arts Camp for Caregivers and Their Loved Ones with Dementia
July 30 @ 10:00 am - August 1 @ 3:00 pm$10
This creative arts camp provides a safe and fun space for caregivers and their loved ones with dementia to engage in creative self-expression while socializing and learning something new. Caregivers and their loved ones will attend the event together and, after a brief introduction, split up to work on different creative projects. This provides caregivers with a brief respite while knowing their loved ones are close by and cared for. They also get to spend time with other caregivers, share stories, and simply relax. Everyone will come back together for lunch before switching activities and then, at the end of the day, come together again to share their work. Each day focuses on a different creative medium, including music & dance, visual art, and natural art (horticulture). On Tuesday, campers will sing, move and share with a little songwriting, music and movement. On Wednesday, campers will get creative with painting and collage. On Thursday, campers will explore gardening, upcycling containers and plant-based papermaking. You and your loved one may choose to sign up for one, two, or all three days of the camp. Each day is only $10 per pair and pre-registration is required.
