WHAT COVID-19 MEANS FOR RAVEN SUMMER CAMP

Summer camp will be hosted on Zoom from 10am-1:30pm and limited to 14 students per class!

During this time of shelter-in-place and social distancing due to the widespread effects of the COVID-19 virus, Raven’s Take Flight Education Team wants more than ever to continue to bring quality arts education to our Take Flight community. We want to help young people exercise and hone their creative energy while we find innovative new ways to build ensemble across distances and ensure our community remains connected.

To participate, students will need access to a computer or tablet, a good Wifi connection, basic knowledge of the Zoom app, and an open and creative mind!

JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH
Based on the book by Roald Dahl
TEACHING ARTIST: Mechelle Moe


Orphaned and friendless, James Henry Trotter lives with his two horrid aunts, Spiker and Sponge. Life there is miserable, until James accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree and very strange things start to happen. The peach at the top of the tree begins to grow, and before long it’s as big as a house. Inside, James meets a crew of oversized friends—Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, and more. With a snip of the stem, the peach starts rolling away, and the great adventure begins!

Nobody has seen Willy Wonka—or inside his amazing chocolate factory—for years. When he announces his plan to invite the winners of the five Golden Tickets to visit his factory, the whole world is waiting for the candy mysteries to be revealed! Who will pass all of Wonka’s chocolate-ly tests? The spoiled Veruca Salt? The gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde? The television-obsessed Mike Teevee? Or maybe it could even be the poor paperboy Charlie Bucket and his Grandpa Joe.

TAKE FLIGHT FAQs

How are the days structured?

An average day at camp might look something like this:

10:00-10:55 WARM-UPS and ENSEMBLE BUILDING (Get to know each other, and learn about the Actor’s Tools through fun games and exercises.)

10:55-11:05 SCREEN BREAK! (Bathroom/Water and give your eyes a break from the computer.)

11:05-Noon  REHEARSAL (Work on the play! Explore characters and build the world of each story.)

Noon-12:30 LUNCH CLUB (We love going to the park at lunch, and making new friends! In an effort not to lose that part of our camp, we are offering social time for the ensemble to eat lunch together and reflect on the morning, overseen by Raven staff, and maybe learn a fun new skill like juggling! This is an optional part of camp, not required.)

12:30-12:40 SCREEN BREAK! (Clean up/bathroom/grab materials for Tech Club.)

12:40-1:30 TECH TIME (Craft project or work on/build set/props/costumes for play) and/or additional REHEARSAL TIME (Adapting/Rehearsal/Scene Work/Runthroughs)

REFLECTION/WRAP UP: Did we meet our goals? What did we learn? How do we feel?

What are the group sizes for camp and the ratio of staff to kids?

The maximum size of each age group is 14 campers. With each group we have one Lead Teaching Artist, one college teaching intern, and one high school theatre student Counselor-In-Training.
