Theater Week: “Jabberwocky”
“Jabberwocky” is a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll about a battle with of a creature named “the Jabberwock.” It was included in his 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, the sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Campers will bring this poem to life under the direction of Cindy Garren, ‎ ‎director of cultural programs at SFSC’s Alan Jay Wildstein Center for the Performing Arts.  From make-up to costumes you will produce, direct and star in a final production.  It will be a little eerie and spooky and really fun! Camp Adventure friends and family members can experience the “Jabberwocky” for themselves at Thursday noon’s performance at SFSC.

Survivor Week
 Join a tribe (team) and compete to be the number one for the week.

 Week 6:
July 24-28
Celebrate Good Times!
Celebrate with us on the last week of Camp Adventure 2017.  We are going to party with wacky games and even wackier dress up days.  Oh, and let’s not forget our traditional sundae bar and pizza party on Friday.  Hint:  The more creative your outfit is the better our “parade invasion” will be.
