Our Summer Camp Theme for 2023:
To be found, you first have to be lost. In keeping with our mission to foster literacy at all levels, we have selected "getting lost" as our 2023 camp theme. Performances will feature the beginnings of great works of children's literature. The goal is to keep the audience thirsty for more stories and adventures by getting them fascinated with the books our performances could be based on:
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter
Lilly's Crossing by Patricia Reilly Giff
These stories describe different types of being lost: abandonment, orphanhood, displacement in another country, and magical journeys. After all, it isn't always a bad thing to be a little lost!
As always, the ultimate selection of material will be based on each child's individual need as both an actor and a reader. If you have any questions, feel free to email the Artistic Director (Spike Wilson) at email@example.com, or call at 765-860-7557. To enroll in the camp, please click here.
What Else Does Our Camp Offer?
Each summer, we offer theatrical adventures with classic children's literature. We are also proud to be the most inexpensive theatre camp of its kind in central Indiana. Our camp is longer, more intensive, and more individually-focused than the others. We also offer:
✓ Essential training in acting, auditioning, voice, stage movement, and all things theatre.
✓ A program that is active, dynamic, and fun while remaining intensely educational.
✓ Curriculum built for each individual camper, whether they are with us to learn to read, become better readers, or take on more advanced literature.
✓ For emerging and early readers, phonics- and story-based learning.
For more advanced students, exposure to and training in classic literature for children, youth, and young adults.
✓ Optional reading tutoring to prepare kids for the next school year.
✓ One-on-one and small group work with a dedicated teaching staff.
✓ An excellent teacher-student ratio.
✓ A welcoming environment for shy children and those with "stage fright." We foster confidence, self-esteem, teamwork, leadership, and an overall love for learning.
