This fun camp is all about puppets! You will develop and build your own rod puppet from a maquette model to a full-body design. Learning to engineer joints and limbs, you will bring their creation to life. You will also study movement techniques for full-body puppetry. Improvisational skits and puppet performances will be enjoyed by an audience during our Friday Art Party at the end of the week. You’ll also make a giant paper mache puppet head and smaller puppets while learning construction techniques.

Students are encouraged to align with the camp of their rising grade. Parents are required to complete an Emergency Medical Form SAC 2020. Students should wear clothes that can get messy. Campers should bring an insulated sack lunch, beverages, and snacks every day. Each week, camps will culminate in a Friday Art Party, where students will share the artwork they have created throughout the week. Friends and family are invited to bring a snack to share and enjoy the artwork from 2:30-3:00pm.
