Summer Camps
Camp Ages Dates/Times Final Performance
Magic Camp #WatchMeAmazeYou
Teacher: Professional Magician Scott Piner

“You call your mom on her cell phone and ask her to look inside her purse where she finds a deck of cards. Pretty Awesome. You then instruct her to pick a random card. You couldn’t possibly know her card, right? But after your instructions, you remind your mom that you can’t see or touch the cards, but with confidence, you name her chosen card! #AWESOME!”
Students will learn magic and study their performance to help them build confidence, explore their creativity, and discover their unique character. Focus will be given to helping students perform magic with confidence and have fun creating magic that shares their unique perspectives. Camp will conclude with a magic show with students as the performers. All students will receive a selection of magic supplies for the week.
