Arts Smarts 2024 – Week 2: THEATRE Morning Session – Grades K-2

Monday, June 24, 2024
Doors: 9am | Performance: 9am

Into The Wilderness
In this camp, students will explore the ideas of imaginative play to go camping!  We will discover all that the wilderness has to offer from all sorts of flora and fauna, campfire songs, and even whitewater rafting – all in the Ware Center.  Campers will use all of the actor’s tools – body, mind, voice, imagination, etc. to create and perform scenes as if we were camping deep in the wilderness.

Campers can register for morning sessions from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, afternoon sessions from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, or both! (For those staying all day, there is a supervised lunch period. Lunches must be brought to camp and will be refrigerated.) Morning and afternoon snacks are provided. Both mornings and afternoons feature a “Common Hour” in which all campers join together for a large group creative multi-disciplinary activity. On Fridays of both weeks, there are morning and afternoon performance showcases and art exhibits for families and friends featuring the campers’ work of each week. Drop-off and pick-up at the Ware Center is supervised by the staff. Registration deadline is May 17, 2024.
