Creative Day Camps Let Kids Shine
Is your phone full of videos that your kids have taken of themselves doing skits? Are they first in line to volunteer for a solo during the spring musical? Are their handmade cards the hit of every birthday party? Boise has numerous creative day camps to offer your young artists this summer.
Aspiring thespians have a lot of choices, two being Idaho Shakespeare Festival and the Morrison Center. Both companies are known for high-quality performances and they give kids a taste of what it must be to tread the boards like professional actors. ISF offers workshops for kids as young as three and as old as 18 in subjects such as musicals, improve and, of course, Shakespeare. The Morrison Center camps are very popular and are currently only accepting waiting list applications.
With summer camps filling up already, it’s important to talk with your kids today about what they’re hoping to do during the long break. If dance is their thing, consider Ballet Idaho. Younger kids, ages four to seven, will love the story ballet camps. This year they can participate in Sleeping Beauty and Peter Pan. Older dancers with more experience might like the summer intensive lessons. Ballet Idaho is currently accepting auditions via YouTube and DVD.
If your child is more into drawing and painting, then you’ll have to look into the different offerings at Boise Art Museum. BAM offers workshops for ages four to 12. The classes are left small, so that the students get a higher level of attention. Check out the website for available times, as some camps are longer than others.
Make sure to keep checking our blog over the next few weeks as we showcase more of the summer activities available!
