Drama Camp 2023

We are very pleased to share our Drama Camp program with the youth of Haldimand County again this year. Last year was a wonderful,  eye opening experience for everyone involved! We witnessed  inspired growth in our students and in ourselves. We watched and participated in the joy of creativity, the willingness of students to work together, and the blossoming of their personal expression as they developed their confidence while learning new skills. This experience was valuable to both the shyest and the most confident of youth—and to us. We look forward to building on this success this year.

Let’s have a look at some of the fun we had in last year’s Drama Camp:

Tableau of a road trip

A group prepares a tableau for “Road Trip”. This was a fun exercise that everyone enjoyed.

Another group prepares their tableau exercise called “So Embarrassed”. No one was injured in the preparation, practice or performance of this exercise.

And these are just some of the things we did!
