ABOUT THIS CAMP

Campers are introduced to the fundamental concepts and skills of improvisation, story creation, and positive collaboration with an ensemble of mixed age peers. The ensemble will select a topic based on the question "What challenge is the world facing that our story can explore and help solve?" They will create characters and devise an original story culminating with a performance for family and friends at the conclusion of the week. The original story will be transformed into a paperback book complete with illustrations created by the campers which they can keep forever.
