2017 – 2018 Sessions

Each session meets once per week for 6 weeks.

Session 1: Tiny Masterpieces

Consecutive Fridays, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
September 29; October 6, 13, 20, and 27; November 3 (2017)

Visual arts fun for smaller masters! This 6-week camp for pre-Kinder and kinder kids is the perfect intro to art-making and famous masterpieces! (Some mess-making will be sure to occur as we paint the town red)! Campers will start each day with active games, grow their imaginations, brush up on their painting and drawing skills, and design their own art too. And then campers will recreate great works of art with a preschool spin!

Session 2: Animal tales

Consecutive Fridays, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
February 2, 9, 16, and 23; March 2 and 9 (2018)

Stories to act out and theatre skills to grow on! This creative, imagination-filled Dragonfly camp is for young fans of animals! Whether they're pets, working with people, or out in the wild, animals have so much to teach us! This camp offers a menagerie of drama skills, so we'll be practicing animal noises, pacing or stalking like animals, and putting together creature-themed stories! Campers will also try out scenes from animal-focused plays (like Charlotte's Web) or take on the roles of animal performers (like Dumbo), all for a rollicking and tail-thumping good time!

Session 3: How far we'll go

Consecutive Fridays, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
May 4, 11, 18, and 25; June 1 and 8 (2018)

Sing along and learn with us in this Moana-themed Dragonfly Camp! This camp is all about springtime and the beach: the tides, the sun, the sky (and we'll try to explain every natural phenomenon in the wonderful world you know)! We'll be both musical happy clams and explorers reading every sign learning things about where we are, and then we'll let what we've learned guide us! Each day, everything is by design: loaded with art, play-along drama games, and especially music! Join us to set a course to find how far you can go, and learn how that sing-along voice inside is who you are! Find all you need in this 6-week, fun, kinder-aged spring camp!
