Harambee Youth Connections Camps!
The Harambee Youth Connections is a restorative program available to 5 – 18 years old. We are a village for the village, which means this program is facilitated by Black indigenous People of Color in the community for youth and children that identify as BIPOC to restore reconciliation within the body.
HYC includes cultural workshops such as Inspiring Art (with Bilingual creative arts and Afrocentric Art) plus Somatic Movement (which includes singing, dancing and drumming), and ethnic foods. Youth will have a chance to engage in sports activities (including large and small body movements, hiking trails and punching boxing bags), and spiritual awareness moments (that includes gardening, yoga and engaging with farm animals).
