BIBLF Summer Theater Camp!
Basics: Believe in Books Summer Theater Camp is a day-camp that is theater & story based. At Believe in Books Literacy Foundation, we believe in the healthy development of young minds through literacy programs that encourage early reading, imagination, and physical activity. Campers will be encompassed in the performing arts as they learn the basics of storytelling and performance. In addition, they will experience daily doses of fun camp games and walks through our wonderful trail system. Throughout the day, campers will experience the art of how stories can take us on a magical journey through our imagination, and will then get to make those stories come to life.
Logistics: Camp takes place at the Theater in the Wood. Where we use the theater, the theater stage, lobby, and the outside property for all our rehearsals and camp activities. On the last day of Camp, at 4:15pm, there will be a Show, showcasing all that the campers have worked on, that will be free to all friends and family.
Kids ages 7-14 come prepared to have fun filled days including acting, singing, dancing, crafting, creating, playing games, listening to and reading stories, and enjoying the fresh outdoors! Campers are asked to provide their own sack lunch, as well as a small snack for later in the day.
Schedule: Drop off is at 9AM, Pick Up is at 4PM, Monday through Friday. Days will begin with some morning activities. Once all campers arrive, we start our activities! Throughout the day we have blocks dedicated to learning a foundation of:
Acting – which will include a small audition (by reading some lines with fellow campers) and once roles are announced, we will rehearse scenes from the performance;
Dance – Campers will learn a couple dances that will take place in their show;
Music – where we learn how music can enhance a piece of work, and work on songs featured in our performance (in the form of tracked music)
Games – Some fun basic camp inspired games sure to make playtime, fun and inventive
Story Time – where we can read stories, share stories and talk about the art of storytelling
Outdoor Adventure – Where campers are taken out on our fantastic trail system for some interaction with nature
