Cost: Camper: $415.00, Counselor in Training: $100.00 After its fouth year's "smashing" success, theatre camp returns! Does your child have an interest in acting? Are they a “ham” in front of the camera? Perhaps they love to draw or to build things? Theatre Camp might just be the most fun week of their summer. Children in grades 3-9 are invited to help us put on a theatrical production! The week will feature designing and building sets, creative costuming, learning lines, and getting comfortable in front of an audience. We can’t guarantee the kids will be Shakespearean actors after camp, but they will have a great time, be inspired in the creative process, and learn what it takes to put on a play. A performance will be held for the parents Saturday morning before the children leave camp. There will also be plenty of time for regular camp activities such as swimming, hiking, and campfires!
