The Steinbach Arts Council's Summer Arts Day Camps have had wonderful month of July full with busy campers, fun creative activities, energy and community field trips.
Summer Arts Day Camps kicked off the summer with Aloha Summer. The campers explored Hawaii, blue waters, summer outdoors, sang camp fire songs and much more! The following camp weeks explored Wild Wild West, Land Before Time and Spy Kid.
Each of the camps included much dance, music, drama, visual arts and recreational activities that were facilitated by the Camp Directors and local guest clinicians.
A few exciting visual arts activities throughout July included a large paper mache bone for Land Before Time, WANTED posters with the country rustic feel for Wild Wild West and Secret Agent offical badges for Spy Kid week.
Dance was brought to the camps by XCOMPANY Steinbach as well as other local clinicians. The campers participated in Hip Hop, line dancing, freeze dancing and creative movement.
Exciting drama activitities were instructed by Assistant Director Malcolm Roulette (Assistant Director of The Backyard Theatre Company). Costumes, props, improv and character building were expressed through these activities.
Musical activities and sessions were infused with energy, creativity and unique songs. Instruments, different styles of music, music learning games and so much more. Music clinicians visited the camps to play flute, piano, guitar and ukulele.
The campers have been involved in many community field trips some including Golden West Radio, Jake Epp Library, Mennonite Heritage Mueseum, Kidzone, Steinbach Aquatic Pool, Steinbach City Hall, Splash Park, Southwood School, KR Barkman Park. In August the campers will be visiting more locations within the community.
