The Prism Project is a performing arts program developed by Ball State University and designed to be physically, developmentally, and cognitively appropriate for youth with disabilities of all kinds. The program is a four-week camp culminating in a final performance, which this year will take place Sunday, June 25, in the Studio Theater at the Center for the Performing Arts.

The goal of the Prism Project is to provide an engaging performing arts program and close the gap in recreational activities for individuals with disabilities ages 6-22. The program’s unique design enables children to express themselves and engage with others while developing self-confidence, gaining creative art experience , and building friendships.

Jungle Jams

July 24-28, 9-11:30 am
Cost: $130


Imagine living among animal friends in a jungle filled with rhythm instruments, music, and movement. Miss Lisa and her stuffed animals introduce children ages 5-7 to the fun and excitement of recreational music-making. Jungle Jams is a creative summer camp program in which kids learn about positive character qualities as well as concepts like rhythm and groove through music and physical activities.

Each daily session includes active music-making, creative movement, playing instruments, and singing. Kids begin to build a sense of community and self-esteem as they contribute to the “group groove.” During the week, each camper will make three simple musical instruments to bring home. Family members are invited to join the Community Drum Circle Celebration for the last 30 minutes on Friday.
