Storytellers (June 24-28)

Once upon a time there was a summer camp full of children who battled evil, saved the damsels, and taught monsters how to make friends through the power of storytelling and imagination. Come learn story structure through theatre games and use your imagination to design and build original set pieces for our Friday Show & Share.
