Meeting a Need for Arts Enrichment
At the beginning of 2020 Summer, The Well noticed that many summer camps were cancelling due to covid and families were being left with no options for kids to engage with arts and culture organizations. So The Well, ArtWorks and Wave Pool teamed up to offer Camp cARTwheel, an arts and culture virtual summer camp and fall programming.
At the core of Camp cARTwheel were the Camp Kits that came with art-making activities and supplies. Along with access to an additional “channel” with videos and supporting documents for those who wish to have a self-guided experience. Between our summer and fall programming, Camp cARTwheel reached 400 youth with activities from 40+ artists and arts and culture organizations. See our impact during the summer session in this Summer Camp cARTwheel Recap.
