Mahana Magic believes that expressive arts are an integral part of healing for children. It is a creative, non confrontational way for children young and old to explore their emotions.
We offer a wide selection of expressive art programs. We work with the Davis Art Studio to offer art programs and summer camp scholarships. We sponsor an Online Teen Writer’s Workshop. Children 12 to 18 can participate in a 6 week workshop. They can explore and express their feelings through writing and support from a facilitator. If cooking is more their style they can join our new cooking program.
Healing Winds Vermont creates lasting memories for individuals with cancer, and their loved ones, through the therapeutic experience of sailing. The sailing excursions are refreshing, relaxing, and spirit-lifting and provide an opportunity to create lasting memories.
Mahana Magic sponsors fun activities throughout the year for children impacted by a parent’s or caregiver’s cancer. These events allows children the opportunity to meet other children who are going through similar experiences, realizing they are not alone.
Some of the activities that we sponsor
are sailing with Healing Winds USA, ropes courses with ArborTrek, UVM Outdoor Adventures and MetroRock.
This is a 6 week online writer’s workshop for children ages 12 to 18. Each week the participants will receive a poem with a writing prompt to explore their emotions in a creative and supportive atmosphere. They can choose to share their work with just the facilitator or with the group, giving the opportunity to express their feelings without judgement.
