Camp activities:

Morning activities will draw from the MOSAIC Project, mosaicproject.org, “Peacing It Together” curriculum, and will include activities to build empathy, resilience, and community, and to empower children to create a peaceful future.

MOSAIC stands for:
— Mutual Respect
— Open Mindedness
— Self Respect
— Attitude
— Individuality
— Community.

The MOSAIC Project’s evidence-based, social-emotional learn­ing (SEL) cur­ricu­lum focuses on four themes:

— Cel­e­bra­tion of diver­sity and aware­ness of stereo­typ­ing, prej­u dice, and dis­crim­i­na­tion
— Respect for and appre­ci­a­tion of self and oth­ers
— Teamwork and coop­er­a­tion
— Assertive com­mu­ni­ca­tion and con­flict res­o­lu­tion (includ­ing lis­ten­ing skills, express­ing feel­ings pro­duc­tively, and empa­thy)

Other fun activities will fill the week. In the afternoon, there will be a variety of activities including non-competitive games, drama games, and choice activities. On Wednesday and Thursday, there will be fun field trips to Guadalupe River Conservancy , the Children’s Discovery Museum. And the camp finishes up with a pool party on Friday.

There will also be on Thursday Evening a Family Barn Dance Potluck with a dance caller and live music from 6-8 pm at the First Unitarian Church of San Jose.

Snacks and beverages will be provided during camp. Children are asked to bring a bag lunch.
