Alumni Play Work With Parks & People Foundation
For the past 15 years, MICA's School for Professional & Continuing Studies has coordinated a partnership with the Parks & People Foundation to provide arts programming for approximately 70 rising second, third, and fourth graders at one branch of the SuperKids Camp. Two MAT alums, Caitlin Kambic '12 and Eric Allard '10 '11 have worked as instructors at the camp.
“It was so nice to come into camp each day and see how excited the kids were to work with clay. Most of the campers didn’t have clay experience, and sometimes had no art experience,” Cambic said. Allard, who had just received his MAT and was looking for a summer job when he heard about a position at the camp, said, “Coming out of the MAT program I was completely ready to handle the students and had no trouble adjusting to the way the camp was run.” Allard has gone on to work with developmentally delayed children in a special needs preschool in Owings Mills, Maryland. Kambic hopes to volunteer with the SuperKids Camp program again in the future.
