COMMUNITY CAMPS

Eayikes connects youth from neighborhoods across the socioeconomic spectrum through camps.  Our first and foremost goal for each camp is creating a safe space. It's in these spaces that we aim for transformation with the help of our powerful community of young professionals. They serve as counselors, modeling courageous childlike-wonder and teaching unconditional love. We facilitate a-ha moments by encouraging an open mind to the views of others, emphasizing activities that center on the sharing of life experiences and stepping out of comfort zones to self-reflect, self-explore, and build self-esteem.


SEED ARTS

To kick-off the year, Seed Arts brings us together to explore our creativity through mediums such as DJing and photography.  Counselors and professional artists focus on planting seeds of self-belief, teaching not only skills, but about process & passion. The three days of conclude with a showcase, where we invite family, friends, and the local community to celebrate our learnings.

WILDERNIZZLE

Wildernizzle takes us out of our comfort zone and into nature where we pitch tents and disconnect from day-to-day living. This camp strives to go deeper, helping us identify what makes each of us great and recognize how our gifts contribute to each family group we are a part of (e.g. born-family, friend-family, Eayikes-family).
