ABOUT OUR CAMPS & AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
This summer, the BIPOC Support Foundation invites students (3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade) to take a journey of play with the Explore Next Door Summer Camp. This camp is intended to teach students the importance of inclusion, self empowerment and acceptance of others through exposure to the beautiful and diverse cultures found throughout the city of San Diego. Come Explore Next Door!
In a week-long immersive experience, children will explore the cultures of Africa, Asia, Mesoamerica and Indigenous People of San Diego. Each day will be filled with immersive activities, fun games, arts and crafts, mindfulness moments, international cuisine, music and dance!
Children will learn and experience music and instruments from different cultures, with the opportunity to play with professional musicians. They will explore dance culture and enjoy the performance and instruction of professional dancers.
With the assistance of professional local teaching artists, children will be able to express their imagination and create with different art mediums, painting, crafts, and photography.
The week will end with a field trip. Location to be announced.
At the end of the week, students will be given backpacks filled with school supplies, reading books and other resources.
