Regular Camp Information
A musical theater and fitness camp for kids ages 6 – 12! This is a weekly camp (M-F) 9a.m. – 3p.m. with a convenient Drop off time at 8:30 for parents that need to get to work. A complimentary continental breakfast will be served at that time for Kids on the run including muffins, bagels and orange juice! Each week campers will celebrate a unique Musical experience with an end of week presentation of our work for family and friends. Campers will also enjoy camp songs, team building exercises, arts & crafts, the movies & a taste of fitness; obstacle course, relays, and more for prizes!
A typical day at CSS: Campers enjoy a quick light breakfast. The morning begins with ice breakers and theater games to build acting skills, self esteem and learn about our new friends. Campers then begin into rehearsals for the themed play of the week; they learn blocking, sound and music queues and character work to name a few. Lunch is at 12 noon every day. Campers bring their own cold lunch. Following lunch, let the games begin! Campers are divided in groups and work together as a team to compete for prizes. Some of our team-building games include, obstacle courses, charades relay, nerf-ball and our famous toilet paper model walk! Sometimes if we are feeling really silly, we have a fun food contest but watch out – it’s messy! All prizes are normally something to be shared by all the campers. For example – “pop-party”! The winners of the game win popsicles for everyone!
