Well, we have completed our one week theatre camp and it was so awesome! We all shared many laughs with each other while playing games, and had lots of fun making crafts. Of course, we also worked really hard to put together our show for Alice in Wonderland. All of the campers worked so hard during the week to help bring the show together. 

Some of my favorite moments from camp was making the tea cups for the tea party scenery in the play. All of the campers were so creative when we were painting these, so many fabulous and different colors. I also loved creating the scenes of the performances. It was so awesome to watch everything from my mind come to life after reading and studying the script. Another favorite moment was when we did the fashion show with all of our costumes on. The campers loved doing this, and it was fun to watch. We got to go for a nice walk during the week to the gazebo on the waterfront, and we played many games outside when we were there.

The campers started showing a lot of progress throughout the week, and I could not believe how well the play was coming together. So many great things came from camp, but the biggest thing for me was seeing the progress form everyone at camp. We only had 5 days to put together a show, and we did it all amazingly! The show in the end was done so well, as they are all so talented and we are so proud of every single one of them.

This week could not have been possible without the help of everyone. This includes the parents, the Quick As A Wink board, and Joanna and Laura. Joanna and Laura have helped Shelby and I so much with both camps and we are so grateful and appreciative for them to have been there. We truly could not have done it without them.

Besides camp, I still have been hosting some of the Trivia Nights! The last week I hosted a “Back to School Theme.” We went back to school, and though some found it hard to remember their junior/senior years at school, it was quite funny to watch and see. There were categories such as history, science, health, geometry (one of my favorites), and even Driver’s ed. Remember when you were first learning how to drive, and you had to remember every rule of the road, some of these were talked about during trivia! 

The next two weeks we will be busy with our Musical Theatre camp, for ages 12-17. We are excited to get started, and on that note, I still have a few things to do, so I am going to get back to it! Stay tuned for more information and what we are doing this summer with Quick As A Wink!

Cheers,
