Upcoming PJDS camp days: 

On December 8th we will learn all about the month of Tevet as we go inside ourselves and reckon with our emotions. We will consider how weather affects us as we connect to nature on our winter gratitude walk. We look forward to a day full of collaboration and exploration. Learners will experiment with salt paint, movement, marble mazes, and stained glass window making as we dive into social-emotional reflection. 

On December 13th we will continue exploring Tevet with collaborative making exercises and self-regulation meditations. We will turn inward and consider our relationship to music as we collectively build a mandala. Through experiential and joyful activities we will consider the tools that best set us up for success. While creating supportraits, kiddos will reflect on what supports their emotional needs. We will utilize natural materials and upcycled trinkets to let our creative energy flow. 

Camp at Makom is a special time, having the day to delve into a subject is a true gift. To read about our most recent School’s Out Camp days at Makom Community, click here. We look forward to learning and growing with your kiddos. We hope to see you there!
