Creative Drama: Superhero Adventures

One-week session 
June 10-14 
9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. 
Preschoolers (Age 4) through rising Kindergarteners
$300 per session

What to Bring: Water bottle, snack, sunscreen (Labeled with name), clothing and shoes that are easy to move in. Costumes are welcome, but weapons are not allowed. If your camper wears a dress or skirt, please be sure they wear shorts or tights underneath.

*Before camp begins, all campers MUST be fully toilet trained and have graduated from training underwear. Please see Landon Summer’s Toilet-Trained Policy and definition. Landon Summer reserves the right to dismiss campers who demonstrate that they are not toilet-trained to the standards of the policy.  

Calling all Superheroes-in-Training! Whether your favorite is Superman, Ironman, or team PJ Masks, you can hone your superpowers and skills of service while using your imagination to the extreme. We will explore different superhero stories and characters using action, song, movement, and art. Using play, campers will be exposed to literacy skills like identifying the characters, setting, problem and solution. They will learn drama skills like pantomiming, creating characters and theatrical design. Finally, they will learn life skills like creative problem solving, spatial awareness and teamwork. 

We’ll move quickly to keep active minds and bodies engaged. We’ll begin each day with theater games to warm up the campers’ ability to use their bodies and voices in imaginative ways. Next, we’ll read the story of the day and begin exploring it with activities like freezing as different characters or acting out movements to a superhero song. Then there will be a snack break and free play outside. After they get some wiggles out, campers can dig in and act out the story in guided dramatic activities. Campers will next be exposed to set, costume, and prop design through daily art projects. On the final day of camp, families will be invited to the amphitheater to witness an adventure the campers created together. Our goal is that all campers have a blast acting out heroes while developing confidence, creativity, and friendship. Save the world with us this summer!
