The Cape Ann Y is launching their first ever all ages Performance Camp. This four-week performance camp for young people age 5 to 17 years old runs from June 27 through July 22 and culminates in two public performances of the classic beloved musical The Wizard of Oz at the Cape Ann YMCA at 4pm on July 21 and July 22.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn from theatre professionals in all areas of production including acting, music, dance and scenic, prop and costume design while developing self-confidence, communication and teamwork skills as they are introduced to the skills necessary for professional theatre. The production offers a wide range of roles for all actors to discover their creative potential and shine. Based on the classic novel and award-winning motion picture, The Wizard of Oz follows the story of Dorothy, a young girl from Kansas, as she travels to the magical land of Oz to find the true meaning of “home.”

Gloucester Museum School – Project Adventure Summer Camp – Rowing the Jones River Salt Marsh
Martin Del Vecchio submits-
This is how kids start their day in the Project Adventure Summer camp; by rowing the Jones River Salt Marsh to the day’s destination. My kids have done this camp for four years now, and they absolutely love it.
This Thursday (3:30-5PM) is the last origami class for kids this month at Art Haven! The content and level of difficulty of the class is entirely flexible according to the needs and interests of those who sign up.
So, for example, if your child (or a child you know) has an origami book and has stopped using it because he/she is stuck on a difficult model or discouraged, register them for the class and bring them with the book in question! I will help them through whatever difficulty they may be facing, and we can fold some model(s) from the book with the other students.
The possibilities are endless! Contact Art Haven for details on pricing and registration, and if you do register and have a specific interest or need, let me know ahead of time so I can prepare if necessary (you can comment on this post). Here’s a photo from a previous class, showing me with budding origami artist Leon Calvo:
We folded a boat, a dragon, a lotus flower, and a Brontosaurus (aka Apatosaurus). Leon’s father David Calvo is a wood carver who does beautiful work and teaches classes as well.
It’s not too late to sign kids up for Theatre Camp at the YMCA! I’ve heard great things about this program. “Murder on Rocky Neck: The Opera” was the result of a similar program with Henry Allen in the past.– Matthew Green
