Summer Arts Enrichment Camps 2020
Investigate, Adapt, Act! Camp
July 6-10, 2020 | 9:00 am-3:00 pm
What if you could bring your favorite book to life?! With Book-It Repertory Theatre, students will dig into the juicy parts of a story - characters, setting, sequence, point of view - then take it apart and put it together again as a script to act out on stage. After spending the week in teamwork with their peers exploring stories in a fun, physical way, this new acting ensemble will share its work in a final performance for family and friends.
CROWS: Caws & Effect Camp
July 13-17, 2020 | 9:00 am-3:00 pm
In a new partnership with the University of Washington Bothell, ECA presents a STEAM-focused week of crows! Crows and ravens are smart, quirky, and mysterious. CROWS: Caws and Effect is a week-long exploration that combines the study of the natural world, the arts, and corvids [the crow family]. Learn how crows and ravens communicate using tools to gather food, create crow-inspired artwork, and discover their meanings in cultures from around the globe. How will these clever creatures inspire your curiosity?
