july | gallery 7 | theatre camps

Cool theatre stuff at Gallery 7 in Abbotsford this month. The first session has already begun, but if I've got it right, there are new ones starting up throughout the month. By the way, the original email included a billion links, but I'll just give you one: HERE is their website, you should be able to find what you need there...

Gallery 7 Theatre & Performing Arts Society presents
Summer Drama Blast 2010
July 5 – 23, 2010

Theatre camps for kids and teens ages 6 – 18.

Age-specific generalized camps for kids ages 6 – 13. Topic specific camps including Performance Intensive, Playwriting and Directing.

MEI School Campus
4081 Clearbrook Road, Abbotsford.

Summer Drama Blast is an exciting and interactive drama program for children and youth ages 6 - 18. This camp-style program is designed with the whole person in mind and endeavours to help the young budding artist establish strong foundations for a life-long enjoyment of the arts in an environment that is supportive, affirming and encouraging.

Camps are lead by qualified, trained and experienced instructors dedicated to creating a fun and interactive learning experience where the total individual is considered and respected. The focus of Summer Drama Blast is on process rather than the final product, giving children the opportunity to explore the dramatic arts in a non-pressured and fun environment.

And of course, Summer Drama Blast is about fun, fun, fun, making it a not-to-be missed annual summer activity!
