June 25-29 features special puppet workshops from Z Puppets Rosenschnoz of Minneapolis!
The weeklong camp will host two groups. In the morning youth will learn shadow puppetry.
In the afternoon, youth and their adult companions will learn blacklight puppetry. The afternoon session will include accommodations for youth with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), although it will be open to youth of all abilities. Many people with ASD find blacklight soothing.
At the culmination of the weeklong camp, both groups will perform along side the professional artists as
the Sailor Chorus in one sensory-friendly performance of Monkey Mind Pirates, a stage performance on Friday, June 29 at 7 pm. Youth emerge from camp with puppets they created as well as skills in mindfulness that will fuel and sustain the artistic process throughout their lives.
Registration fee is $40 before June 22
