My week at summer camp

September 10, 2019

I was at Culture Camp this summer with my sister, Holly, and it was pretty fun.

I was at Culture Camp this summer with my sister, Holly, and it was pretty fun. We did a play (musical theatre) and the name of the play was Emotion Commotion. Musical theatre camp isn’t the only camp they have, there are others like visual arts that was in the same building when we were there. I don’t know much about visual arts, but I do know about musical theatre.

The instructors we had were Ash and Curtis. They taught us that if you are in theatre, you have the chance to be someone you are not. You also learn how to dance and sing. You play games and even perform your play in front of your parents. My grandma and grandpa came to watch too. You also get to make new friends.

This was probably my favorite camp, so if your parents have to work during the week in the summer, you should ask them to go to this camp.

I did lots of other activities too, like going to the park a few times a day and on our last day we walked to the Scott Block Theatre to see what a real theatre looks like, how the lights and sound work and check out behind the stage – that was really cool.

The play we did was all about emotions. I was Fear, which was good because I am scared of a lot of things! We sang songs like, “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana, “I Wan'na Be Like You” from The Jungle Book, “I'll Make a Man Out of You” from Mulan, “Do-Re-Mi” from Sound of Music and “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story.

I am not usually a singing and dancing type, but I really loved this camp, learning the songs, performing and making a new friend. I hope we get to go to this camp again next summer.
