Magicarium Camp
In this half-day camp, children ages 4-10 will explore the magic of the world we live in. Inspired by local lore and legend, as well as the mighty powers of nature, projects will open the eyes of even the most skeptical kids, prompting the question: do you believe in magic?

A morning meeting will follow, including an introduction of the day's project. We will break for snack before we spend the rest of the morning engaged in making!

Art and Movement Camp
Through mindfulness exercises that consider each and every part of the body as a tool for mark-making, students will be given a GIANT “canvas” to investigate and work on over the course of the week. We will use our hands, arms, legs, feet, and more to invent new ways to apply paint to paper. Explorations into basic engineering, such as the construction of a pendulum for dripping paint in an arching shape, will open up new and exciting possibilities!

Rompatom Music Camp 2019
Students will be immersed in a variety of challenging instrumental and vocal material, learning about improvisation, theory, and composition, and creating a vibrant performance that will be shared that Friday at the end of the camp. A focus on rhythmic work and ensemble playing, combined with movement and theatrical elements, brings a deeper understanding to musicianship and music making that is enthralling for this age.

Students who play other instruments (uke, piano, violin, guitar, etc) are welcome to bring them to the camp and we will incorporate them into the performance. Keyboard on site.
Ages: 8-14 years old
Price: $270/week
