Kids arrive and start the day with a specific morning project that then leads into a time of warm-up. The day is spent moving through specific activities relating to the theme. These activities range from games to specific exercises in acting, movement, visual arts and storytelling. Lunch time is accompanied by a time of fun and games outside and the day ends with a healthy snack. Each day explores a specific piece of the theme which culminates in a small showing the final day of camp.
