2019 SESSIONS

While each session has a specific theme, we always offer circus arts, lots of time outside, visual art and space to work on a collaborative performance at the end of the week. Storycamp is a child-directed program; when kids are especially excited about something, their interest helps shape the curriculum.

Session 1:
June 10th - June 14th
Wilderness Survival in the Wild West

This is a chance for children to build their relationship with nature through story and role play. Our setting is the Wild West and here we will learn about our environment and practice basic bushcraft skills. Activities include scavenger hunts, shelter construction, fire-building, plant and animal identification, injury treatment and prevention, archery, knife skills and knot tying. At the end of the week, come visit the Storycamp Saloon, enjoy a stiff Sarsaparilla and witness firsthand demonstrations of important skills necessary to survive in the Wild West.

Session 2:
June 17th - June 21st
Circus As You Like It

During this week the children will be introduced to a number of circus skills; aerial dance, partner acrobatics, juggling, stilt-walking, unicycle and clowning. Along with opportunities to cook throughout the week, kids collaborate to produce wonderful spectacle-driven circus acts. We also practice hospitality, inviting friends and family to enjoy a culmination of our culinary efforts with the original performance.  

Session 3:
June 24th - June 28th
Rock and Roll Story-amp

Ever dreamed of bringing art to life through animation, directing a movie, playing with sounds and music to tell a story? Here kids get to do all three, working together to make music videos! This session we have opportunities to use puppetry, stop-motion animation, story-boarding, set-building, dance, and foley art to create a piece that is musical and story-rich. Kids have ample time outside to build their sets and incorporate any of the circus art or survival skills we have practiced throughout the summer.

Girls' Overnight
June 30th - July 2nd
Wild at Heart
Location TBD 

This is an opportunity for girls to connect and build confidence in nature. Our first day will include lessons in fire-building/ tending, tent set-up, appropriate packing, knot-tying, navigating, plant identification, and basic first aid. We have opportunities for building a temporary shelter, understanding water purification, reading a compass as well as camp cooking. No experience is necessary, all levels are welcome.

Session 4:
July 8th - July 12th
Circus Scientists

Children are the scientists, inventors, and solution makers to questions that arise after the discovery of a new planet. Much like ours, this newly discovered world faces challenges in the immediate future. This is a playful and innovative session, encouraging kids to observe and connect with the environment around us so that we may better understand the other. At the end of the week we will have a scientific fashion show where kids strut the cat walk, showcasing inventions intended to maintain the health of the planet and its inhabitants.

Session 5:
July 15th - July 19th
Mission Survival: Choose Your Adventure

While other sessions include role play, here we delve deep into an imaginary universe. Drawing from Dungeons and Dragons, incorporating live action role play, campers get to build and story complex characters. Together, we embark on a journey of skill and strategy, exploring heroism and challenging the understanding of villain. It’s choose your own adventure with team-building, map-making, circus art, bushcraft and puppet-making. Kids collaborate to complete a grand mission. At the end of the week, campers invite families for an interactive theater game of their design.

Session 6:
July 22nd - July 26th
Mythical Creatures from Around the World

Primary elements include: connection with nature, circus art, sustainable building, and theater. Storycamp seeks to embolden children, to encourage curiosity and build fresh relationships with a rapidly evolving world. Our activities are designed to facilitate embodiment, vast imagination and the ability to respond empathetically in diverse circumstances.
