Children’s Drama Camp
Jul 14 @ 9:00 am – Jul 25 @ 5:00 pm
The Prairie Arts Council is pleased to announce registration for the Twelfth Annual Children’s Summer Drama Camp for children entering 2nd-9th grades. There will be a morning camp and an afternoon camp (9-12 and 2-5 PM) running July 14-25. The camp cost is $85 with special rates for siblings. Need-based scholarships are also available upon request for those who meet the criteria.
Each camp session culminates in the performance (12 PM and 5 PM on July 25) of an original play written specifically for the campers and, to a large extent, tailored to the needs and abilities of the campers.  Campers in each session of camp name their own production. Children get the hands on experience of creating a show, from set and light work to costuming to performing.
Payment is expected by June 1. Please make checks payable to The Prairie Arts Council.
