Theatrical Week (August 20-24)
Lights! Cameras! Action! This week join us for some theatrical fun, including acting lessons, costume making, hide & go seek in the bamboo forest, role-playing, art al fresco, creative writing, story and song, garden expedition, and an original camp theatrical production!

This week will end with a Family Fun Friday performance from the Toe-Jam Puppet Band on Friday, August 24. The Toe-Jam Puppet Band offers a special brand of hands-on children's entertainment that grown-ups can actually enjoy. This interactive performance will encourage kids and parents to sing and dance along with the band, as they entertain with a unique combination of original songs, masterful shadow puppetry, storytelling and just plain old good fun.
