Performance art on the land

August 12–16, with Friday-afternoon performance for parents/families

Living Tree Alliance, in collaboration with The Royal Frog Ballet, presents Theatre Devising! a performance-art camp for rising 6th through 9th graders.

Kids will create an original piece of theatre through improvisation, movement, clowning, puppetry, and character exploration. No theatre experience necessary—just a willingness to collaborate and try new things. Camp includes fresh food from the farm and river swimming alongside performances of possibilities and magic!

Friday-afternoon community performance will take place on the land.

Cost: $315
