Alberta Theatre Projects is excited to be bringing back Play Dates, a series of online digital day camps! These digital day camps will consist of a combination of both active instructional time and independent activities to entertain your child for the day while limiting the screen time required. Each camp will take place during a CBE scheduled non-instructional Professional Development (PD) day.
With each day camp focusing on a different theme of theatre performance and creation, Play Dates camps will help kids hone kids’ creative skills through fun, imaginative and engaging activities.
Students are welcome to sign up for any number of camps – no prior experience is necessary! Students who attend all camps during the season will come away with fundamental performance and theatre creation skills.
How does it work?
The day before the camp, each child will receive a special delivery from Alberta Theatre Projects containing their Surprise Supplies which will both reveal the camp’s theme and aid in the camp’s activities.
Each camp will have 4 separate 45-minute instructional blocks throughout the day (for a total of 3 hours of screen time). In between these blocks, campers will be sent off to work on activities independently at home, and then share their work with the group upon returning for the next instructional block. No parent supervision or participation is required!
Schedule and Dates:
Day Camp Dates: Sept 24, Oct 8, Nov 12, Nov 26, Dec 10
All camps take place from 10:00am – 4:00pm
