2015 Summer Camps




July 6 - 10, 9 am - 3 pm, ages 8 - 14 years

Campers spend a week at the historic courthouse playing improvisation games, role playing historic figures, and learning the basics of improv and stagecraft. Campers learn about character development, voice and diction, storytelling,  public speaking and performance. Campers will create flash performances of some of their favorite characters and will recreate historical events with a twist. Creativity, fun and

learning are at the forefront in this unique camp experience.

A great alternative for children's fun, these enriching camps will teach children how to write creatively and to view writing as a fun process. Led by award winning children's book author Mary Ann Rodman, children will learn to tell their stories clearly while engaging their audience through the use of guided exercises and creative thinking. Campers will use the exhibits at the DeKalb History Center and the Decatur square area as inspiration.

After care available until 5 p.m./$10 per day. Must register in advance.
