MINECRAFT (Ages 8-12)
Typically, kids play Minecraft at home with little to no direction or goals in mind. Now, approach gameplay from a new angle to learn how to think critically about your work with the infinite possibilities of the game. Create themes, storylines, dialog between characters, objectives, goals, and more. Most anything imaginable can be performed in Minecraft. Itis the epitome of creativity–limitless opportunity to build, discover, and problem-solve. In recent years, the game has gained traction as an educational tool, acknowledged by many as an important vehicle for engaging kids in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields such as programming, video game design & development, level design, and more. There will be supervised breaks with outdoor activities planned.

IMPROVISATION CAMP (Ages 10-12)
Get ready for a week of laughs! This one week program will explore the fundamentals
of improvisation by developing support, trust, risk taking, and confidence with each
young actor. This means developing not only a quick-wit but some physical comedy as
well. Everyone will participate in many exciting and fun theater games, movement exercises,
and ensemble-building activities that will culminate with a live improvised performance.
Learning improv is a valuable skill both on and off the stage. Real life is improvised after all.
