ASAP to hold summer camp
The After School Arts Program based in Washington, which serves northwestern Connecticut, is accepting registration for its 2016 summer camp.
The camp, open to children ages 41/2 to 13, will run Aug. 1-12 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Washington Montessori School, 240 Litchfield Turnpike in Washington.
For the first time, ASAP’s summer camp will offer After Camp Care until 5 p.m.
ASAP’s full-day camp offers a comprehensive arts camp experience, featuring visual arts, creative writing, dance, drama, music, photography, textile arts, circus arts, magic arts, yoga, and costume making with teaching artists who are all professionals in their fields.
Campers will have an opportunity to participate in “Welcome to the Band” with Emily Robb, who will lead the two older groups in the many facets of being in a live band, from learning instruments to writing and performing original songs.
Campers can also choose from Circus with Matica, with the younger children focusing on creative and dynamic movement, scarf juggling, plate spinning and rolling globes and the older campers participating in Chinese yo-yo, juggling, unicycling and stilt-walking.
Edwin Olvera, a former member of the world renowned dance group Pilobolus, will teach creative movement, dance and yoga.
The camp will include a festival on the last day featuring participants’ art in special exhibits and performances.
The cost is $650 and includes all materials. There is a $60 additional per week for after camp care fee. Financial aid is available.
