It might feel like winter is never going to end, but it’s time to start planning for Spring Break, especially if you’re looking for camps for your kids that week! Dance Exchange, an organization that creates dance and engages people in making art, offers a unique spring break and summer camp program that encourages kids to explore nature and the stories of where they live through dance.
The Moving Field Guide (MFG) uses movement as a creative tool for discovering changes in the environment, helping students have a deeper connection to the world around them. During these immersive experiences, participants activate their senses and observation skills through a series of outdoor movement activities. Students learn about their local ecosystems through art and science, fostering appreciation, knowledge, and active stewardship of the environment.
Kids can get outside and be active with the Moving Field Guide over Spring Break! Spots are still available for the fun-filled week of creating art and making new connections to outdoors, with each day focused on a different nature topic led by Dance Exchange artists and local naturalists.
Registration is $300 for 5 days (that’s only ~$11/hour for child care). Plus, the City of Takoma Park has made it possible for any child to attend who wants to join through a generous scholarship program. If price is a barrier to joining, fill out the scholarship form in the registration.
