Class Experience


Campers become storytellers, directors, and puppeteers as they bring their creations to life! Throughout the week, your camper will develop a character and create their own puppet and props.  We will also explore a variety of styles from finger puppets to shadow puppets. Campers will work collaboratively to build sets, imagine dialogue, and perform a show at the end of our week together.
