Our Virtual Camps have everything your kiddo needs this season:
- Authentic & Immersive Interaction with teachers and their fellow campers. Collaboration and socialization with small groups is vital for their socio-emotional development.
- Movement! All of this time inside means that moving our bodies is more important than ever before.
- Imagination! We firmly believe that with a little bit of magic and imagination, we can transform a difficult situation into one that your mini adventurers will leap off the couch for.
Our camps will be a maximum of 8 kiddos to be sure that each child has lots of personal attention and interaction.
Virtual After School Camps: 3:00pm-4:30pm
In our weekly After School Camps, students will explore the semester’s theme with movement games, collaborative activities, dancing, craft projects, storytelling & more!
3:00-3:40pm – Warm Ups & Dance Time!
3:40-3:55pm – Craft Time & Snack
3:55-4:30pm – Story Drama & End of Day
Zoom link for each camp day, plus additional information will be sent by email the week prior to your camp starting.
**CRAFT DELIVERY – We are thrilled to offer contactless drop off of craft supplies in select Brooklyn neighborhoods, as well as shipment of crafts to any campers near or far. To receive craft supplies, campers must be registered one week in advance of the camp start date.
Those registered afterwards will receive any printable craft documents, as well as a list of household items to have on hand to complete the week’s crafts. We know that parents are working incredibly hard right now, and we don’t want to add any unnecessary stress, so all crafts will call for simple items that everyone will most likely have lying around their homes.
If available to you, items to have handy for crafts include:
– markers or crayons
– tape or glue
– paint and paintbrushes
We are so thankful to still be connecting with all of our wonderful kiddos, and meeting so many new friends in this virtual world!
Outdoor Camps: Ages 3-6 yrs
Come join us as we explore the world of drama and dance using the themes and music from our favorite stories! Each day will be filled with dramatic games to warm up our bodies and voices and get our imaginations ready for theatrical exploration. Students will learn essential theatre skills and terms, engage in dramatic play, explore dance and movement, and create artwork each day.
All camps include an online album of photos and video at the end of the camp so you can see your child’s work.
Whether your child already enjoys performing or is a little hesitant, our camps are aimed to boost their confidence and get them excited about being themselves!
