Kid Crew:
Summer Camps 2017

Creativity. Performance. Community.  FUN!

 

JOIN US this summer for two new arts and performance camps!   Mixed ages 6 & up.

Each week, campers form a storytelling “art crew”. They will build a performance using folklore and world mythology, creating puppets, masks, music, dance, costumes and scenery, learning collaboration and leadership skills along the way.  At the end of the week, the crew gives a performance of their work and celebrates with a potluck for family and friends!
