COACHART VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMPS
CoachArt’s free virtual art & athletic programs improve the social and emotional well-being of kids & teens impacted by chronic illness.
We fully enrolled our free virtual summer camps in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, Portland, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Activities included painting, music, yoga, and more. All supplies were included in our “CoachArt Kit,” which we shipped to the homes of participating families.
Thanks to the popularity of this new program, we are considering offering more virtual camps in the future. Stay tuned for further details.
