Take a look at what our Executive Chefs are cooking up! This class for campers entering grades 3 through 6 allows them to pick recipes, order supplies, and execute their own meals. They’ve learned all about following recipes, practicing food safety, properly cooking meat, and baking desserts. They’re so excited to show off their new skills that they asked their instructor if they could host their own dinner showcase on Friday for their guests! We know their friends and family will enjoy tasting their delicious creations.

Our campers in Annie Kids have been hard at work! In just two days, they have already auditioned for parts and started learning their lines, songs, and choreography. The campers on the tech crew have painted backdrops and built almost all of the props needed for the production.

Annie Kids – On Stage is led by Ms. Mary, who is a local private vocal lesson instructor, and her assistants. They’ve loved getting to work with this talented group of campers! Join us for the performance on Friday, June 12 at 2:00 in Hockaday’s Small Gym!!
