We are so excited for another summer of fun, silly, and safe adventures! Our Take Flight Summer 2021 Camp will feature two virtual sessions (conducted of Zoom), centered around the wondrous works of Roald Dahl, as we learn about the mysterious ways of The Witches and take to the sky with James and the Giant Peach! Kids from any part of the country can join in on the fun with this year’s virtual camp setup!
$300 – Early Bird Registration (Ends June 1st)
$325 – Regular Registration
Great for beginners looking to learn the basics of performance or more advanced actors looking to hone their skills, Raven’s team of professional teaching artists will help kids feel the confidence to contribute to the artistic process and the courage to try something new. Over the course of two weeks, campers will create their own virtual theatrical adaptations inspired by Dahl’s adventures.
Our first week will focus on ensemble building, exercising and developing our actor’s tools, familiarizing ourselves with the world of the story and creating our script. Our second week, we’ll work together to bring the world of the play to life through rehearsals, costume/prop/set creation and filming. The culminating movie of our play will be shared with families at a special viewing party the week following our final day.
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! Limit 16 students per class.
A young boy learns from his grandmother that witches are indeed real, and they don’t like children! In fact, they really don’t like children. Witches despise, loathe, and detest children! Unfortunately for the rest of the world, it’s hard to tell a witch from a non-witch, because they’re really good at disguising themselves. So this brave young boy and his grandmother go on an epic adventure to battle the witches and save the children of the world. Note: While some of this material can be scary for younger students, the content will be adjusted to the ages of the camp.
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!
Don’t delay in joining in on our summer of virtual fun!
