Campers can sign up with their age group for one or both sessions. * Register by April 11 for an Early Bird Discount – we have Sibling Discounts too*
——– Session 1 (July 5 – 15): Ease on Down the Road ——-
Come along on a funky musical journey down the yellow brick road.
Drawing inspiration from “The Wiz,” we’re creating our own mini-musical over the course of this 2-week session. Campers will explore their creative voices and the themes of home, courage, and friendship using a mix of performing and visual arts. Working together with our teaching artists, they’ll create their own dances using Jazz, Hip Hop, and basic tumbling moves, and compose musical numbers using African djembe drum rhythms. Campers will also make masks, costumes, dioramas, a Brooklyn-themed Emerald City set, and more. At the end of the session, campers will get to show their family and friends what they’ve created in a fun performance for all.
—– Session 2 (July 18 – 29): Laughing Trees: African Fables —–
Join us on an adventure through enchanted forests full of magical creatures.
Campers will enter the magical world of African and African-American folklore in this 2-week session. Using books like Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters, campers will explore their creative voices and play in a world filled with kings who can change into snakes, trickster animals, and laughing trees. They’ll learn riddles and games, and create songs and dances based on West African and American folk traditions. Campers will also paint dioramas of enchanted forests and create puppets, masks, and costumes of the creatures who live there. At the end of the session, campers will get to show their family and friends what they’ve created in a fun performance for all.
