With just under 100 days until the start of camp, it’s time to make your plans for summer fun! Your camper can spend the summer creating masterpieces in Visual Arts Camp, or exploring their acting and improv skills while shining on stage in Imagination Alive or Take Two. Summer at Friends has created the perfect place for your child to explore their interests and talents in the arts!
Visual Arts Campers (ages 6 – 12) spend their mornings learning about different artists, styles, and techniques. Each day is full of fun projects that allow campers to explore new concepts and their own creativity guided by caring and enthusiastic staff. The rest of the Visual Arts camper’s day will be full of classic summer camp fun like swimming and outdoor activities.
Summer at Friends’ theater camp, Imagination Alive, is for kids ages 7-10. Campers spend four weeks activating their imaginations, exploring their innate creativity, working as an ensemble, and building their stage confidence as they write, prepare, and perform a play! Imagination Alive campers spend a portion of their day developing new theater skills like improvisation and playwriting. Other parts of the day include a blend of outdoor activities and recreational swim.
For our older actors, Take Two, offers a four week intensive for ages 10 to 13, tailored to the group’s interests. Campers have the opportunity to explore various modes of performance and theatre through workshops such as: improvisation, puppetry, monologues, advanced scene work, playwriting, miming, directing, Shakespeare, the art of comedy, and more! Take Two campers also spend part of their day developing independent or group performance pieces. Guided by the staff, these performers will develop their projects, preparing to share them at the end of the session! Four weeks full of opportunities to create, imagine, play, and inspire one another!
All Summer at Friends Fine Arts Camps include daily lunch and snack, plus recreational swim time and other fun activities. Friends School’s 35 acre campus houses everything campers need – including performance stage, art studio, and plenty of outdoor space — so there’s no need to travel!
