Building Community through dance

 

Summer Arts Camp 2013

Champey Arts Association  hosted  its first Summer Arts Program in August and September.  In addition to the children who are now becoming “ regulars” at Champey,  summer  campers came from included more than 30 children from the Phnom Penh Municipal Orphanage and several from our   AIDS Patient Family Support Program ( FSP) . Children enjoyed a half day session learning  traditional Cambodian dances and music.   Traditional Cambodian  music is  a key part of the dance and teaches children the history and stories  behind the dance.   

Local daily attendance has continued to increase at Champey, with some days seeing as many as  100 local children coming to participate during the course of a day.  Our goal of building community and becoming a place for kids is gaining ground among local street vendors who  found the summer program a great way to safely occupy children during the school break.

The camp session ended with a field trip for all of the campers  to a local water park and a graduation  performance and party to celebrate their accomplishments.

Your  support of our efforts  gives us the opportunity  create a sense of pride of culture in these students by exposing them to Cambodia’s rich cultural heritage.
