Merrigong Theatre Company presents

Merrigong Creativity Camp – July School Holidays

Interactive 5-day theatre-craft & performance workshops for kids aged 5 – 13.

10 Jul – 14 Jul

During the 2017 April, July and October school holidays, Merrigong Theatre Company will again hold its renowned Creativity Camps. Open to any child 5 - 13 years of age, these camps build self-confidence, creative and social skills. The perfect school holiday activity.

Under the guidance and supervision of professional performing artists and qualified educators, children will be taken on a journey of creative exploration culminating in a performance for family and friends at the conclusion of each camp.

Creativity Camps aim to expand each Camper’s imaginative world. Children will develop their story-telling and acting skills through improvisation and other activities, and get the opportunity to learn about set, costume and prop design by working with a professional theatre designer who, in collaboration with them, creates the design elements for the end-of-week performance.

Our camps are fun, educational and encourage Campers to develop ongoing friendships with other like-minded children, many of whom attend the camps on an ongoing basis. 

July's theme: Shhh! It's a secret.
Ever had an imaginary friend that no one else could see? Always wanted to belong to a mysterious club? Know how to keep a secret?

Join us as we enter a world of mystery and intrigue during Merrigong’s Creativity Camp. Over 5 full days we will explore the world of spying, magic and illusion, hidden worlds using the spoken word, music & movement. Campers will conclude their stay with a family & friends performance, plus attend CDP Kids production of Mr Stink, based on the award winning book by David Walliams.

Age: Children 5 – 13 years are placed into groups based on age and confidence.
