K-M Drama Summer Camp | August 2022
The Drama Summer Camp will be happening on August 6th, 2022. The high school students have worked hard to put together an amazing day. Children going into the 5th-9th grade are able to sign up as campers. The fee for the day is $15 per camper. It will start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 7:00 p.m. Campers will need to bring a sack lunch, snack and a refillable water bottle to use throughout the day. Dinner will be Domino's pizza provided by the camp. There will be classes offered in every area of the theater. The day will be broken into different blocks of equal time and the students will be able to choose what class they want to attend during that time period. Five parent volunteers will ensure every student is in a class and safe at all times.
The day will end with a skit written and performed by the high schoolers. It will incorporate different aspects of the camp and be a fun way to end the day!
Every camper once arriving will be provided a name tag and a packet. In the packet, there will be a schedule of the day, a map of the school, and contact information for emergencies.
All teachers are high school drama students and will be wearing the camp t-shirts and a name tag. All parent volunteers will also be wearing a show shirt of their choice and a name tag. All campers will be introduced to the instructors at the beginning of the day with a meeting in the PAC. The instructors will go over the plan for the day and how to read the packet so every student is more comfortable with the day. Spare packets will be printed and provided as well as name tags for those who lose them.
All classes will be taught in the PAC, Music department, or The District Office Meeting Room M109 at the high school.
