CREATIVE KIDS CAMP Ages 6-12

Hidden Lands

Campers spread their wings and soar at Creative Kids Camp, where the emphasis is on self-expression, creativity and fun! Each camp day is spent exploring: Acting and Theater, Singing and Music, Dancing and Movement, Ceramics and Visual Art.

Creative Kids Camp
Greenbelt Community Center – 15 Crescent Road*
Ages 6-12
In addition to daily creative activities, campers enjoy supervised free swim twice per week and daily outdoor recess. To balance all the excitement and help campers to rest and recharge, we have a quiet time after recess, during which older campers can read or play a quiet game and younger campers can hear a story read aloud.

Instead of going on field trips, our campers perform in a show for parents and others to come and see.

Our show this year is Hidden Lands, which tells the story of three schoolchildren who are transported by a magic ring to an enchanted island, where they meet the powerful Phoenix and help a down-hearted prince. Imagination and sharing are the true magic they discover – and your camper will, too.

Stagecraft Teen Internships and Adult Volunteer Opportunities with the Creative Kids Camp

Teen interns (ages 15-17) and adult volunteers (ages 18+) are invited to help make original costumes, masks, props, puppets and set elements (as needed) for this year’s Creative Kids Camp shows. No prior training needed – just an interest in creative collaboration with fellow artists of all ages. Flexible schedule. No fee to participate.

Stagecraft artists work primarily with each other and with a staff mentor in our production studio. Interns and volunteers also help facilitate classes in which the campers themselves can help make elements for their shows, and assist backstage during dress rehearsals and performances. While projects are under construction, stagecraft artists may work for extended periods in the studio without constant staff supervision, although staff are available if questions or issues arise.

CREATIVE KIDS CAMP Ages 6-12

For Summer 2014, CKC proudly presents an all-new show: MESSAGE TO TOMORROW

She’s BACK! Wonderful, irrepressible Grandma from Magic In The Attic, who helped kids use their imaginations to bring an attic full of toys to life, returns to Creative Kids Camp this summer, with a brand-new show full of old-fashioned fun! She’s here to help the Up-to-date family, whose members are addicted to their cellphones – they even use them to say “Pass the salt” at the dinner table! Grandma intervenes with some vintage fun and games, teaching the Up-to-dates to party like it’s 1938 – and to emulate Greenbelt’s founders by creating a living legacy that sends a Message To Tomorrow.

The magic of art and performance unfolds for campers at the Greenbelt Community Center, where they are mentored by teaching artists and enthusiastic counselors as they explore theater, movement, music, ceramics, and visual art. At the end of each session, campers will present a live musical theater performance at the Greenbelt Arts Center. Self-confidence, coordination, and presentation skills are among the developmental benefits that come with performing in the CKC musical.

This camp is ideal for the camper who prefers creating to competing. Campers experience the joy of collaborating as a community as they jointly create the imaginary world of the camp show. Campers enjoy supervised free swim twice per week. There are no field trips.
