Calling all theater lovers wanting something exciting to do from home this summer: We will be offering an online version of some Theater Camp Activities! This is your chance to expand your knowledge of theater from home and work on some specific skills. Join our Theater Camp Director, Meg Buckner, as you explore the following: what makes a good audition, play improv games, learn what “found space” can be, work on monologues, connect with the power and possibilities in the voice, get energized with energizers, learn the ins and outs of storytelling (while writing your own!), and so much more! Participants can also come with their own ideas of what they’d like to work on. The goal is to keep connected and creating with our amazing theater community until we can be together again. We will meet a few times a week online all together so we can talk about these projects. Participants will then have time to create what we’ve covered. Everyone will get one on one time online to work with Meg as everyone creates their masterpieces! At the end of our 2 week session, we will showcase what we’ve learned!

As you continue evaluating your summer needs it is important that you understand what guidelines and protocols the JCC camps will be following this summer. Our goal is always to provide a safe and comfortable place for your child(ren)

• All campers and staff will begin the day with health screening, including temperature checks
• Campers will be placed in a group of no more than 10 that will be their camp group for the entire week
• Camp groups will maintain proper physical distancing between each group
• Staff will wear 'Personal Protective Equipment' (PPE) at all times and campers may be asked to wear masks in between activities
• Campers who show signs of illness will be isolated from other campers and picked up by parents immediately
• Camp facilities will be cleaned and sanitized frequently throughout the day

Additional forms, waivers, and policies will be shared with you once your registrations have been confirmed.

 


 

THINGS TO CONSIDER
• Because this summer will be different than the ones your children have experienced, we ask that you spend some time explaining these changes with your child, prior to the start of camp.

• In addition, we encourage you to look for opportunities to engage with us before camp begins, so that we can better address any questions or concerns you and/or your campers may have.
As guidelines and state regulations continue to evolve, we may find that things could change throughout the camp season.

As promised, we will keep our line of communication open, as always.
