Shoreline Community Middle School Hosts Explorations Camp

Table of Contents


With Explorations funding of $5,000, Shoreline Community Middle School hosted a two-week arts camp for 32 children aged 8-14. The camp focused on improvisation and sketch comedy skills as well as storytelling and other theatre arts with recreation breaks in the school gym. Students prepared and performed two comedy shows for friends and families; for many campers, this was their first theatre experience. The overall success of the camp has prompted organizers to plan future camps, including some of the graduates of this program.

Explorations provided students in kindergarten to Grade 7 with opportunities to explore arts, sport and recreation in summer camp settings. The program, which ran from 2005-2008, served students who were otherwise unable to attend summer camps due to location, local resources or financial limitations. Explorations was supported by the Province of British Columbia.
