St. Thomas camps loaded with fun

More than the bare necessities

    St. Thomas Church is the site of more drama than just Easter’s Passion Play each year with two camps offering kids a chance to tap into their showbiz side.
    Children ages of 4-13 are invited to attend Company B Performing Arts Day Camp from June 9 through June 21. There is a half day camp for ages 4-7 and full day for 8-13.
    Both groups will be learning all the parts and pieces going in to the production of Disney’s “Jungle Book Kids,” a musical about a young boy’s adventures with many jungle animals on his way to a “man village.”
    Days are spent in age-appropriate rotations of acting, singing, and dancing, all working towards a three day run of “Jungle Book Kids.”
    Campers help embellish their costumes for the show.  
    The performances of Jungle Book will be June 19-21 at 2 p.m. in the Community School Theater for families, friends and the entire community.
     The youngest campers will attend from 9 a.m. until noon. After noon, kids can enjoy an action packed daycare until 3 p.m. Bigger kids will attend from 9 a.m to 3 p.m.
    St. Thomas Playhouse is also presenting the seventh annual Summer Performing Arts Conservatory Camp (SPACC) for youth ages 10-18 from June 23-28.  
    This destination, immersion camp is located in the Sawtooth Mountains at Camp Perkins, nestled among soaring pines and on its own private lake.
    Campers immerse themselves in various genres of the performing arts attending workshops in theater/acting; singing techniques/music theory; all types of dance; film; Rock Band; and stage movement.
    There are no auditions or pre-requisites for participants; first-timers are welcome.
    The six days culminate in a Share/Showcase where campers present their talents and skills to parents, families and friends.
    To register for SPACC or for more information, call Sara at 726-5349 x16.  Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis for youth needing tuition assistance.
