Due to the provincial government’s recent decision to delay March Break, Creativity Camp has been suspended until further notice.

 

The Thousand Islands Playhouse is delighted to offer a virtual half-day March Break Camp for participants aged 8-10 years old. Creativity Camp will meet on Zoom every morning from 9am-noon (3hrs), where kids will be led through exercises that will have them up on their feet, telling stories, making art, moving, and grooving.

Creativity Camp’s main goal is empowering kids towards unabashed self expression. Our camp facilitators, Sophia and Delaney, are committed to creating a safe and supportive atmosphere where creativity is celebrated and imaginations can run wild.

A typical day at Creativity Camp will include:

•    Drama games and character creation exercises
•    Group storytelling and work with simple puppets
•    Music, movement, and dance
•    Arts and crafts
•    Themed dress-up days like Crazy Hat/Hair Day and Hallowe’en in March Day

We know the pandemic has been hard on the young people in our lives, so we are working to make Creativity Camp extra special. Each participant will be sent a GOODY BAG containing simple costume and prop pieces, as well as arts and crafts supplies. With parental consent, we will also be recording elements of Creativity Camp and editing a compilation video so families and friends can get a sneak peek at what we’ve created.

DETAILS

•    Dates: Monday March 15 to Friday March 19 from 9am-noon (3 hours).
•    Time will be allotted for a snack break mid-morning.
•    Ages: 8-10 years old.
•    Small group size: 10 participants with 2 facilitators.
