Multi-Arts Programs Receive Funding for Summer Camps

| September 5, 2022 | 0 Comments

This past summer the San Diego Foundation awarded the VAPA Foundation $900,000 to deliver an enriching expanded learning program for San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) students as part of Level Up San Diego Summer 2022. As part of the award, the VAPA Foundation hired local arts organizations to offer summer camps at 12 schools across the City of San Diego.

VAPA camps consisted of multi-arts programs that were available throughout the SDUSD district and allowed students to discover, experience and learn many types of art and design. From dance, set and costume design, and digital animation to painting, or creating their very own musical, VAPA campers built their day based on the subjects that interest them. There were a total of 966 registered students, (including In Play and paper registrations), with a total of 12 participating schools, including Hamilton ES, Perkins K-8, Zamorano ES, Pacific Beach Elementary, Hickman Elementary, Sequioa Elementary, Oak Park Elementary, Webster Elementary, Wilson Middle School, Marshall Middle School, Madison High School, Lincoln High School, and 17 art organizations, including ArtReach San Diego, Center for World Music,  Classics 4 Kids, Malashock Dance, San Diego Youth Symphony, and The Old Globe.

The San Diego Youth Symphony was one of the recipients of the VAPA Foundation funding.
