If laughter is the best medicine then these camps are the prescription to health.
You can have your fun two ways: hometown or in a cabin in the woods.
For kids grades 3-9, there is Camp Little Laugh, Laughing Stock Theatre Company’s sleep-away camp Aug. 3-8.
The camp returns to Camp Sawtooth located eight miles north of Ketchum near the SNRA headquarters and features a traditional camp experience within a week of theatrical classwork in mime, improvisation, acting, art, dance and music.
Chill time offers recreational games, hiking and evening campfires. In the evenings campers enjoy lip-syncing, performing skits, or having fun dancing.
Price is $850. Scholarships and payment plans are available. A grand finale performance is Friday, Aug. 8, at the nexStage Theatre.
Summer Stages Day Camp is back at the Community School campus from June 30 through July 18. This camp provides a venue for young people ages 4-16 to exercise their imaginations and grow in wonderful and unexpected ways. The final free performance is at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum.
This theater day camp will focus on theater arts on and off-stage with professionals Patsy Wygle and Keith Moore.
