Theater and language learning can each open up a world of possibilities for children. Now they have a chance to do both during one unforgettable and unique summer camp experience. Your children will develop invaluable lifelong confidence and interpersonal skills through games, stories, music, reading, and more while learning German. 

Campers will work primarily within their age group in either the "elementary" (2nd-5th grade) or "intermediate" group (6th-9th) while enjoying nearly 35 hours of drama experience in German! 

Example of daily activities (all activities listed will be done with the targeted goal of 90% German usage):

8am-10am: Arrival, warm-up activities, drama games, new vocabulary through motions and games from the play script.

10am-10:15am: Morning break and snack

10:15am-11:30am: Applying new vocabulary to the play script and doing readings together. 

11:30am-12:00pm: Lunch and outdoor language games. 

12:00pm-3:00pm: Scene study, performing and rehearsing scenes from the play, character work. 


The one-week day camp will conclude with a short performance for parents of an all-German version of the classic tale "Bremen Town Musicians". There is no prior acting/theater or German experience required, but campers with prior knowledge are welcome! The camp is limited to the first 24 participants to register.
