Our talented, experienced teaching artists are planning a rich, fun, and rewarding Online Mini Camp experience this summer! We will use a combination of the Zoom video-conferencing platform, which we like for its reliability, ease of use, and option for campers to use virtual backgrounds as desired for privacy purposes, (or just for fun!); specially tailored online videos that campers can watch anytime; and “Camp In A Box” craft packets that will be available for curbside pick-up at the theater!
Shelby Edwards will be our Mini Camps Lead Teacher! Returning campers will recognize Shelby from her work at our Mini Camps last summer, where our post-camp surveys indicate she was deservedly beloved. Shelby has this to say about 2020 Mini Camps Online:
“I’m very excited to work with Mini Camps again this year! As a former Live Arts student, I LOVE being able to teach the next generation of movers and shakers through ZOOM. If your kid is ready to wiggle and giggle, this camp is perfect for them!”
Jennie Bottas will be our Mini Camps Assistant! Jennie also worked at our 2019 Mini Camps, and she was also a huge hit with campers and parents alike. We feel so lucky to have such a quality returning staff! Jennie says this about this summer’s camp experience:
“I have been using ZOOM to teach this age group all spring in my capacity as a preschool educator, so I feel very comfortable with the platform. I’m really looking forward to fun with your kids this summer!”
A sample Daily Schedule is below. We will set up clear and simple invitation emails with which a parent or care-taking helper can assist campers.
9am-9:30am: Warming up bodies and imaginations plus drama games and short songs.
9:30am-9:45am: Stretch Break
9:45am-10:15am: Simple craft time using the “Camp In A Box” craft materials, plus using the crafts as the basis for imaginative play.
10:15am-10:30am: Stretch Break
10:30am-11am: Storytime with Shelby plus acting and moving with the story.
11am to 11:15am: Warm down and goodbyes!
In addition, each day we will provide a 30 minute original video crafted by veteran teacher Edwina Herring with more age-appropriate games, poems, stories, and fun! The links will work any time this summer.
