Ensembles

Choir: Do you love to sing? This is your opportunity to sing in a group that will focus on the best ways to sing together with expression, phrasing, diction, and more. If you like to sing along with the radio, in the shower, or all through the day, then this ensemble is for you.

Drama: Campers will work on the fundamentals of theatrical performing (including the art of projection, “cheating out,” and making clear and appropriate facial expressions) while rehearsing for—then performing—an original play on the last day of camp.

Musical Theater Dance: Campers will enjoy working together to help tell the story of the production through music and movement. This class offers building skills such as coordination, hearing rhythm, and team building. 

Set Design: Be part of creating stage scenery and props. This class will produce the backdrop for the final performance of camp.

Workshops

Workshop 1

Break Dance: Use hip hop fundamentals to create a group dance for the final production. Campers get to freely express their love of moving to the beat while keeping it cool.

Comic Strip Drawing: Calling all creative comic book and cartoon lovers who are eager to express themselves creatively and have fun in the process. Write and develop stories and characters and draw them into comic strips.

Creative Weaving: Do you know what warp and weft are? Do you enjoy being creative? We will be making a couple of easy weaving projects, then you will get your own small loom and plenty of yarn and fibers to create a special piece of woven art. You even get to take the loom home . . . and find out the meaning of warp and weft!

Drum Circle: Campers will learn to read, create, and play rhythmic patterns using snare drum sticks and ordinary objects ending in a fun music performance on Friday.

Torn Paper Pop Art: Using layered, torn construction paper, we will create stunning three-tone portraits and works of art.

Workshop 2

Origami: Did you know the Japanese first used origami to teach young ladies to fold their kimonos? Now it’s a wonderful art form—folding a variety of objects out of a square of paper, no cutting, no glue!

Photography: We will photograph people, birds, butterflies, flowers, trees, water, fire—whatever we can find. Your creations will be combined in a slide show presented on the last day for the whole camp and parents to enjoy. Bring your own digital camera or borrow one of ours for the week.

Sock Puppet Jam: What has fuzzy ears, a cape, and sings? A lip-syncing animal superhero sock puppet! Each camper will build a puppet, learn basic puppeteering techniques; and we’ll all learn a song so we can jam out (and show off) at the final performance. 

Still Life Painting: Learn the process of drawing and painting what you see in front of you, how to see color, and how to mix colors. Take home your own beautifully painted canvas.

Vocal Technique: A fun introductory course where campers will learn how to make healthy sounds while speaking and singing, without the pressure of having to perform for an audience.
