Our Thinking About What We Can Offer Right Now
Camp Winnarainbow has always been about BIG FUN, building community and teaching circus and performing arts skills to practice timing, balance and keeping a sense of humor. For over 20 years our youth leadership program has provided our youth leaders with a relevant, fun, experiential and creative environment to gain and practice the skills they need in this complex world.
For 2021 we continue to push outside the box to put our good where it does the most. This is the time to think innovatively and to look at how we can be together in creative spaces, even if it’s not in person right now.

Voice For The Human Being In shared communities like Camp Winnarainbow, home, or school, our individual voice is a tool to be explored and used for clear communication–of thoughts, hopes, visions, jokes, and dreams! The voice is not as simple as you may think. In this class, we will explore what it means to be human and have a voice. How can the exploration of your voice help you approach things like public speaking, important conversations, sharing ideas, and stepping up in your community? How can identifying your inner artistic voice help you find the change you want to see in the world? Things needed for class: wear comfortable clothes you can move in, paper, writing utensil, coloring tools, and ONE MEMORIZED SENTENCE — it can be as simple or complex as your heart desires, like what you ate for breakfast or what you want to be when you grow up. just one sentence. Sat. March 13, 2021 12:30 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada) Session Led by Erica Davis
