If you’d like to help the workshop’s students be more comfortable in our new facilities where they’ll be eating, sleeping, and living story for six weeks this summer, there are ways for you to help! 

The Summer Workshop needs items large and small for the students every year—from coffee to whiteboards and beyond. This year we especially need additional safety supplies to be as safe as we possibly can during the pandemic and to meet our COVID protocols. If you’d like to help out, you can purchase items from our Amazon Wish List.

Thank you so much for helping support our students and our workshop!

Travel is expensive for the students and the instructors! Especially this year, with higher flight costs and delayed entry to our new facilities. If you have extra travel points, hotel points, or miles, please contact Marnee at director@clarionwest.org to see if any of these can be applied to reduce the travel costs this summer!
