Creative Drama: Superhero Adventures
One week session
9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
Rising 1st through rising 2nd graders
Calling all Superheroes-in-Training! Whether your favorite is Superman, Ironman, or team PJ Masks, you can hone your super powers and skills of service while using your imaginations 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 super hero 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!
