ECA's intergenerational camp returns! This program is structured so that teens play together in a special morning session. Teens later take the lead to help teach their senior band-mates when the whole group meets -- with the objective to provide leadershhip and mentor opportunities to both teens and older adults.

* Please note: As this camp involves collaboration between teens and adults, ECA is required to run background checks on all adult participants. This is a simple, free-of-charge process that will check exclusively for crimes against persons. Once adults have registered, ECA will forward a consent form to run this check. Please contact Gillian Jones at gillian@ec4arts.org or 425.275.9483 with any questions or concerns about this process.

ECA's Summer Arts Enrichment Camps are made possible with funding from The Hazel Miller Foundation. Special thanks to Nancy Bittner for her generous support of summer camp scholarships.

"I think he may have a love for the arts and we just didn't recognize it. His excitement for your puppet camp surprised me; I always thought he was more of the sports type because of his activity level. So, I thank ECA for giving us opportunities to expose him in fun active ways that are affordable."

-- Parent of 2014 ECA camper
