Summer Camp '16
SUMMER CAMP AT HEARTWOOD
Registration is underway for Heartwood’s 14th session of summer camp, with three sessions scheduled June 27 thru July 7, for students entering grades 1-12. Heartwood’s theater camp is designed with dual purposes: building skills and building confidence - onstage and off.
“Sprouts Camp” is the perfect introduction for young students entering grades 1-2. This 4 day, morning session focuses on storytelling, movement and theater games. Students blossom under the care and instruction of Heartwood staff, along with visiting actors/artists with youth theater teaching experience.
“Kids Camp” is a popular 8 day program exploring the areas of storytelling, stage combat, improvisation and movement, designed specifically for students entering grades 3-8
For high school students and middle school students with previous theater experience, the 8 day “Intensives Camp” focuses in multiple areas: scene work, stage combat, graphics, playing classical, improvisation, poetic language, movement and monologues.
Camp Instructors include a veteran professional staff: Griff Braley, Heartwood’s Artistic Director and LA Drama Teacher, Alison Machaiek, award winning Drama Instructor at Oceanside High School in Rockland, Mark Bedell, certified fight master and professional stuntman / fight choreographer and Karen Montanaro, mime/dance artist and teacher.
Several visiting actors in residence for Heartwood’s summer production, “The Tempest,” will work with students in all three sessions, lending their expertise, experience and enthusiasm.
Many sponsors make summer camp possible, including Heartwood’s Season Sponsor, Bath Savings Institution, Season Youth Sponsor, Damariscotta Hardware, and Camp Sponsor, The First.
