What will my child do at camp? Each day or week ends with a stellar performance. Throughout the day/week, Jitterbugs work on songs, choreography, possibly skits or puppet shows, movies and more for their performance, depending on the theme. Camp curriculum includes singing, dancing, acting games & improvisations, costume design, prop creation, set dressing and of course, tons and tons of fun! Our nurturing atmosphere allows children's confidence to grow and provides an outlet for children who already perform all day every day!
Will my child get to bring anything home from camp? Yes!! Each day/week, performers will get to take home their costumes and/or props they made! make their own costumes!
