NEW for 2018! We've fallen in love with puppets around here. There are endless ways to design, construct, and perform with puppets. From marionettes to Muppets, puppets are a maker's dream. In this week-long camp, participants will explore puppetry traditions from all over the world. We will learn about present day and historic ways in which people made and performed with puppets. But most of all, we'll spend our days designing and constructing our very own puppets and puppet theatre. Puppets are a perfect way to experiment with simple machines by developing puppets with moving parts. Students will have access to our shop full of tools and materials with which to create puppets from fabric, wood, and more.

We will follow the lead of the group to develop scripts and stages for our puppet show masterpieces. The last day will be dedicated to rehearsals and performances. There's something for everyone in this creative camp!
