Free Camp provides platform for creativity
Spring City, TN — The Tennessee Valley Theatre free drama camp for youth provided opportunities for young people to expand their creativity. There were children from Kindergarten up to 6th grade in attendance. Kids were separated into age appropriate groups and counselors worked with children on creativity, imagination, listening, planning and just plain having fun.
There were several fun activities that consisted on pantomimes and other games centered around creativity and teamwork. This camp went from 9 am to 2 pm daily, a good amount of time for mentors to work with the campers. On the last day of the workshop the youth put on a show for parents and family.
Each age group performed a short skit/musical to end the day and week. Great job by the youth and counselors to help develop these young peoples creative skills and teach them how much fun acting can be. It is great that the TVT provides a camp for these young children of the community at no cost.
Most of the counselors had themselves been a part of one of these camps in the past. Leah Mishelle O’Neill ran the camp this year. Leah has extensive theatre background and truly enjoyed the opportunity to help young people discover their creative side. Karen Holmes Beck and the staff at Tennessee Valley Theatre were very appreciative of all those who participated and instructed in the camp.
