Each camp is one week long; each week is based on a different production, so that campers who register for more than one week will be able to build more skills while working on different material each week.
Campers work together within age groups of (a) 6-8, (b) 9-12; and (c) 13-16, to create an end-of-week presentation, performed on Friday afternoons for an audience of family and friends. To promote equal participation and accommodate a range of student interests, each age group performs its own separate scenes for the Friday show.
Campers will learn about many aspects of theatre and musical theatre, including: stage movement, character work, improvisation, voice, theatre dance, acting techniques, singing, and working with scripts.
They will also be involved with theatre games, storytelling, warm-up and cool-down activities, as well as the creation of props, scenery, and costumes. These activities are designed to develop concentration, creativity, teamwork, confidence, and a sense of belonging and achievement.
Campers will work both with scripted materials and with developing their own creative content.
The camp day:
Activity periods are thirty-minute to forty-five minutes long, with the schedule including skills development, rehearsals, games, crafts, and improvisation. There is a 30-minute break for lunch, followed by supervised activities; 15-minute snack breaks are scheduled for morning and afternoon. The day begins with warm-up games and ends with cool-down and reflective activities. To be integrated with their group and prepared for Friday’s performance, all campers should arrive on time and stay for the full day.
The camp program is fun, appropriate and challenging for both boys and girls.
We will select material based on the mixture of ages, student interest, the ratio of boys and girls, and the level of experience. On the first day of camp, campers will choose the material we will use in our Friday show.
