Bloom: Adults with Varying Abilities/disabilities is a mindful, fun and inclusive summer camp experience. Bloom offers a safe and connected environment to participate in art making through an exploration of a variety of art mediums and processes. We will play, express ourselves, our creativity, and engage within the community. We want our participants to make meaningful connections while having fun with expressive arts.
We focus on a mindful approach to programming to best suit the needs of the individual. We use a low skill high sensitivity approach and require no past art experience before participating in this program.
Our camp sizes are intentionally capped at lower numbers (8 per session) while offering different date options. They also have the option to be in-person for sessions, virtual, or a hybrid of both. We recognize the value of small group sizes to maximize safety and individualization so we can provide a high quality camp experience for everyone attending. All people 18+ with disabilities are welcome.
We are offering Mindful Mondays, Trillium Tuesdays, Wacky Wednesdays, Thoughtful Thursdays and Feel-good Fridays. Every Mindful Monday session is themed around art activities that promote mindfulness and grounding. Tranquil Tuesdays are focused on art and nature. Wacky Wednesdays are focused on abstract and eccentric art activities. Thoughtful Thursdays art activities are focused around gratitude, love and reflection and Feel-good Fridays are focused around our favourite things, interests and happiness!
We will be offering 6 weeks of programming from Monday July 11th to Friday August 19th.
Participants can sign up for individual sessions.
