Multi-Arts Camp culminates with a presentation of Go Fish! for family and friends in Straw Hat Theatre. First-time participants are welcome – no artistic or theatrical experience needed! Summer Multi-Arts Camp is a great way for kids to try new activities, make new friends, and use minds, bodies, and voices to create something special. All campers should bring packed lunches, and should bring a white, 100% cotton T-shirt to the first day of camp for screen printing.
