Life is better by the campfire surrounded by friends, theatre, and spooooooky stories.. In two fun-filled weeks, students will explore classic campfire stories and folk tales, collaborating with theatre teaching artists to recreate their own campfire chronicles for the outdoor stage. Each day at camp will include play-based dramatic storytelling, music, crafts, outdoor play, and free choice time to nurture social emotional learning, friendship, and imagination. At the end of the week, students will perform a final show for their families theatre-in-the-park style at Skinner Park, 1331 W Adams St.

Prior to camp, registrants will have the option to sign up for free aftercare at CCT (100 S Racine), or agree to pick their child up immediately after camp at Whitney Young at 3:30pm.

This camp is in-person. For information on precautions we are taking during the pandemic, please see our Education Policies & FAQs.
