Joshua’s Stage – Fostering Creativity, Self-Confidence, and Social Skills Through The Creative Outlet Method™
Joshua’s Stage is the premiere enrichment program for children ages 3 to 18 and adults with a wide range of special needs; featuring after-school programs, camps, workshops, performances, and exhibits in theatre arts, improv, dance, photography, and Create-A-Story.
Programs at Joshua’s Stage are conducted using our The Creative Outlet Method™.
“We LOVE your program and really appreciate what you provide. Being a special needs family can feel isolating at times and you are like a big hug from the wider world..”
–Parent of a participant from 2017 Summer Camp
The Creative Outlet Method™ is the process used to enhance every participant’s unique abilities while providing them with the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity and to increase their self-confidence. To foster and maintain a warm and welcoming environment for everyone, qualified staff and volunteers are trained to implement the CUPSS of The Creative Outlet Method™:
Create – create and conduct activities with our passion for the fine arts
Unique – celebrate every participant’s unique abilities while recognizing their accomplishments with our “Ferris Wheel Round of Applause”
Positive – develop and maintain a positive relationship with every participant
Support – support participants so that they encourage each other to achieve their best
Success – provide an environment for every participant to feel successful
“She was shy at first but she got warmed up and opened up. Teachers were great!”

Develop Positive Relationships
We learn about each participant’s favorite things such as TV characters, movies, songs, and activities. We include each participant’s interests in our fine arts showcases so that they are empowered to always achieve their best.
“Ferris Wheel Round of Applause”
We celebrate every participant’s accomplishments with our celebratory applause that includes, “Right hand up, left hand up, cross ‘em in front, and pat yourself on the back” so that everyone feels successful.
