Ahoy, mateys!

Through dramatic storytelling and guidance from professional theatre artists, campers will create a pirate play for the outdoor stage. Participants will learn about story structure while embodying different characters and crafting a nautical story all their own.

Daily activities include:

  • Play-based dramatic storytelling
  • Music
  • Crafts
  • Outdoor play
  • Free choice time to nurture social and emotional learning, friendship and imagination

At the end of the week, students will perform a final show for their families theatre-in-the-park style at Skinner Park, 1331 W. Adams St.

The full camp rate is $980. Learn more about scholarships/financial assistance opportunities.
