+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

CULTURE CAMP is a creative conference curated especially for traditional and non-traditional Pre-K–8 educators. Explore, learn, and connect with different cultures through craft, cuisine, music, and dance.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

We live in a global community – and our classrooms are microcosms of the vibrancy and vitality of the rich diversity of culture, tradition, and heritage that defines the new American mosaic. CULTURE CAMP is a daylong creative conference curated for traditional and non-traditional Pre-K–8 educators presented by purple suitcase. This learning lab will inspire and support classroom-based enrichment that celebrates the unique diversity of our communities and builds bridges of understanding and respect among students.

​WHAT YOU’LL LEARN + EXPERIENCE

Explore, learn, and connect with different cultures through craft, cuisine, music, and dance. Artisans, chefs, musicians and cultural experts have created cultural experiences and gathered resources ready to implement. Educators will explore ways to adapt cultural modules for their teaching environments, and connect with fellow CULTURE CAMPers to exchange best practices and forge collaborations.

​ABOUT PURPLE SUITCASE

purple suitcase, a digital journey + cultural education organization, founded CULTURE CAMP for those looking to discover resources for their teaching environments, from school classrooms and after-school programs to home learning environments and camps.
