Event description

We know hand puppets from the Muppets and Sesame Street and now your kids can learn how it’s done! So if your camper loves acting & crafting, and wants to get behind the scenes to see how storytelling works, this is the perfect camp. Kids get an understanding of both the technical and theatrical aspects of puppet plays. By the end of the week, campers have hands-on experience with the planning, development, design, production, and be ready to show off their creative work at a grand performance!  We will also video our puppets and watch ourselves perform.

The 5-day, weeklong camp ends with a performance for family and friends in The Auditorium. Participants will be proud to take home their own creations on the last day of camp.

Dates: August 8-12,
Ages: 4-5 yrs, 6-8yrs or 9-12yrs
Hours: 9-4pm
Students are required to bring a packed lunch, all puppet supplies are included in the fee.

Recycling Opportunity!
If you have any of the following that you would like to donate, puppet camps will use: large cardboard boxes and tubes, hola hoops, fabric, drier vent tubing, bowls, gift bags, markers, magazines, paint, craft supplies and toilet paper rolls.   Albert Community Centre is not air conditioned so if you have a fan to loan us that would be great too 😉

Wide Open is always on the lookout for overhead projectors, projector markers and sheets.  If you have any of these to re-home please let us know!

*All camps will be offered pending sufficient registration.  Wide Open reserves the right to cancel a class for which minimum numbers have not been reached.  Final class confirmation will occur July 1, 2016.
