Up with People Jr.

Up with People Jr. offers a fun performance arts based experience while helping children develop life skills such as:

  • Sense of Community
  • Confidence and Independence
  • Global and cultural awareness.
  • Collaborating with others

We have taken inspiration from the internationally acclaimed group Up with People, and developed a day camp curriculum for 8–12-year-olds, culminating with a high energy musical show. Using the performing arts as a catalyst to explore cultural appreciation, and global awareness. Each song our show is accompanied by a lesson plan to enhance the student’s understanding of the song and its message.

Children who attend Up with People Jr. will participate in community volunteer projects, introducing young people to the importance of helping others, and the joy of giving. In addition to volunteering, cultural awareness and the performing arts, Up with People Jr is just a lot of fun for any child’s summer.
