Ivy Tech summer camp spots still available in theatre and art
Ivy Tech Community College-Bloomington and Bloomington Playwrights Project (BPP) have partnered again this year to offer several unique theatre summer camps, serving youth in grades K-11. There are four theatre camps, with start dates ranging from June 3 to July 8, and there is still time to register. Fees vary.
“Our Youth Education programs deliver a learning experience in a fun environment,” said Chad Rabinovitz, Artistic Director, Bloomington Playwrights Project. “The Ivy Tech/BPP Youth Education program allows kids to both create and act in their own productions. For example, in one of our popular camps, Girls Camp of Rock, the girls write songs, hone their performance technique, and then rock out in a real venue at the end of the week.”
Another popular and one-of-a-kind camp, Youth Musical Theatre Ensemble, allows kids in grades 4 through 11 to write, produce, and perform an original musical, culminating in a final performance for an audience. Kids will not only perform, but they’ll learn how theatre works behind the scenes by participating in rehearsals and collaborating with theatre professionals.
Additionally, Ivy Tech is offering arts-related camps through its year-round Ivy Arts for Kids program, and those camps take place downtown at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center. Ivy Arts for Kids is available to kids in grades K-5. There are four sessions of classes with start dates ranging from June 17 to July 29. Fees vary.
