July 29-August 2
First Baptist Church (820 Ontario Street, Oak Park, IL 60302)
Have your child join us for a week-long summer camp where children will be exploring their creative side all the while helping some great causes!
Giving Artfully Kids focuses on helping children make a difference by becoming young philanthropists through crafting. We believe that the process of creating an item is a valuable to tool to teach children about giving and helping others.
During our summer camp session, we will spend each day exploring a social issue and then creating an item to give to an organization. It is our goal to inspire children to continue to give to others.
Projects include but not limited to:
Dog and Cat Toys for local Animal Shelters
Letters and gifts for servicemen abroad
Hats, scarves and slippers for the homeless
Placemats for Meals on Wheels
Random Acts of Kindness for the Community
Preemie hats for local children hospitals
Gratitude bags for those in need
Please have children bring their own snack and water bottles.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT OUR CHILDREN TO LEARN IN A GIVING ARTFULLY KIDS CLASS?
For our younger students, we understand the concept of giving is sometimes to difficult to grasp. Therefore, our goal every day is to focus on the 5 pillars of giving: kindness, respect, helping, compassion, and peace. We believe that focusing on these 5 pillars will help build the foundation of the concept of giving which your children can build upon as they grow older. We will typically start with an opener to help introduce the topic for the day and then have a craft that reinforces that principle. We will also end with a reflection of what they learned and hopefully, the children will bring home what they learned to share with their parents.
For our older students, we tie each pillar of giving with a social issue. Our discussion will be tailored to different social issues that impact us locally, nationally, and internationally. We will be respectful of each child's age, making sure the conversation is kept at an age-appropriate level. We then will craft an item to help the social cause. Our goal is to have our students feel empowered in making a difference.
