Week 1 – Drama 101 Week
In this new dramatic camp, campers will be introduced to theater basics through games and activities. Campers will learn about skills including improv, pantomime, character development, and stage presence. Campers will have the opportunity to learn about fun improv games where they will have to think quick on their feet to perform a scene. They will also work with other campers to develop characters and perform short scenes. Campers will also learn about different genres in theater and write their own skit to perform for each other at the end of the week.
Week 2 – Let’s Get Crafty Week
Do your children love arts and crafts? Do they love to get creative and make things using all different types of objects? Does your child love to get messy with paint, paper mache, and more? Then this is the week for them! During this week the children will be doing multi-step projects and will have the chance to work with all different types of craft items. While we normally do crafts every day at camp, this week will give the children an opportunity to do more detailed crafts that may take multiple days and steps to complete. With different painting crafts, papier Mache, DIY projects, and more, the children will get the chance to use their creativity and put their own spin on all the different crafts and projects created throughout the week.
Week 3 – Theater Week
During theater week children will be practicing throughout the week to put on their own show. The children will learn all about what goes on behind the scenes in order to put on a show. They will be introduced to acting, dancing, and singing through some favorite Broadway songs and scenes. The children will also have the opportunity in arts and crafts to have a hand in making props and sets for their show. On Friday the parents are invited to come see all the hard work their children put in to prepare their show as they perform all that they learned!
Week 4 – STEM and Slime, Oh My! Week
Do you have a child interested in coming up with ideas and putting them to the test? Maybe they enjoy thinking through problems and finding new solutions. Or perhaps they just enjoy mixing things together and creating all types of slime. Well then this is the week for them! During STEM week, the children will be working in teams to put their hypotheses to the test! They will be participating in many activities that require critical thinking skills and teamwork as they use science to problem solve, design structures to hold the most weight, save an egg from breaking, put their cars and boats to the test, and many more! The campers will also have many opportunities throughout the week to try all different slimes including ones that are fluffy and some that are edible!
