well-structured educational environment.

Parent Review of PAW’s Online Summer Camp Authored By: Kristine, PAW Mom, Camper Age 8

PAW’s summer camp has been a savior for our family this summer. Not having in person camp seemed like such a barrier to our daughter enjoying her summer break, but PAW was able to make zoom camp a success (and gave her parents some time to work). My daughter, Frankie participated in two weeks of camp in June. She especially loved the Theater Games and Improv camp with Ms. Kristy.

Ms. Kristy created interesting games and fun activities for the campers. Initially, Frankie was a little shy engaging with other campers through zoom, but Ms. Kristy’s ice breakers and enthusiasm helped Frankie quickly warm up. By the end of the week, Frankie was eagerly waiting to log on and she loved being assigned an acting role in the mini scenes created by her fellow campers.  After the session was over, Frankie would play some of the games she learned with her family at home.  Thank you PAW for creating this memorable experience!

Camper Review of PAW’s Online Summer Camp Authored By: Lucy, Age 11

I have only been going to PAW for about 2 years now and I already know that I will be going for several more. The thing I love most about PAW is not only that everyone is so inclusive, but the teachers and staff make whatever class we are taking educational and fun for the students. For example, this week for the first time I tried an acting camp and whether we were playing an object game to help us learn about improvisation and acting on the spot, a pose game where you learn to portray a scene using only one simple statue or even mafia where you have to keep a good poker face, we are always learning so much about how to improve our acting while having an incredible time!

Last summer my friend and I went to PAW for the first time and we did the debate camp. We were the only ones in this program and we had the most amazing experience. We learned so much about the different methods of persuasion, (some I’ve used even to convince my parents!) how to weigh the pros and cons, how to find reliable resources to support our arguments with evidence, and so much more!

As we all know, this summer we couldn’t be together because of COVID-19, but regardless PAW has put together the best program on zoom and I am so fortunate to have such inspirational teachers and classmates to work with. Although we are on Zoom now, I don’t feel too much of a difference between the in person experience and online. This just goes to show how well everyone is adjusting to doing things on screens. I have to give a special shout out to Ms. Kristy who has been such an amazing teacher via Zoom. Her class is the one I look forward to every day at 11:00 and she is such a technical genius with all of the breakout rooms she provides for us. I am doing the debate camp this week and I am so excited to see how it goes. I am sure I will have an amazing time as always with the best teacher Ms. Shaindi. These are just some highlights of my time at camp but there are so many more factors that make PAW so special.

Now and forever the PAW community will continue to have the option to come together through Zoom!
With our groundbreaking Online Summer Camp, we are able to bring our Arts mission to even more children across the country as well as to communities that may not otherwise have Arts programs available to them. By connecting children from different geographic regions, from cities, from rural towns, from the West Coast to the East Coast, we have the privilege of helping to create lifelong connections and friendships that will grow our children’s communities beyond their own neighborhoods. While our Online Summer Camp came about as a result of our need to innovate due to what the year 2020 threw at us, it is now becoming a staple in many of our families’ lives as they attempt to maximize their children’s enrichment experiences while balancing work, school, and family time.
With PAW’s Online Summer Camp, we bring our exciting
award-winning arts curriculum including Acting Technique, Singing, Dance, Guitar, Comedy, Magic, Debate For Kids, Theatrical Makeup, and Karate to you via Zoom, the most popular online video meeting interface trusted by schools and universities across the nation.
For the Summer of 2021 we are offering 9 one week sessions beginning June 14th through August 13th. Many of your favorite PAW teachers will be here with us via Zoom teaching curriculum from eight of our student’s all-time favorite musicals. Each session is Monday thru Friday and you can choose from our “Partial Day” of one workshop per day, “Half Day” of two workshops per day or even our “Full Day” with three workshops per day. PAW has created a schedule where families will log on and off providing time for snacks, rest periods, screen-time breaks, lunch and restroom breaks. We are including group Chit-Chat sessions and End Of Day Hurrays which will inspire each child, leaving them feeling happier and more connected every day that they participate.

Magic is theatrical high art. In PAW’s Magic Workshop, kids are given the chance to peek behind the curtain and peer into the top hat. After taking the magician’s oath, our campers will be taught by master magicians, straight from the World Famous MAGIC CASTLE, on varied aspects of the craft. Designed for beginning & experienced students alike, kids are able to work at their own skill level. Each day of camp will include additional tricks to try, with our students learning, developing and perfecting the various elements that will become part of their act.
Students begin with the foundation of the magician’s craft, learning about sleight of hand, redirection, hand and finger exercises, flourishes and magic theory. From there, our campers will progress to the mainstays of the magician’s repertoire, such as card tricks, the classic cups and balls, coin tricks, rope tricks, and more. And just as importantly, our campers will be taught how to fine tune their tricks into a polished presentation that they can share at home or online with their friends. Children can also stay on for multiple sessions of the Magic Workshop and expand their “act” along with their skills. The mastery of magic offers its practitioners a number of benefits, including the development of confidence and self-esteem, hand-eye coordination, critical thinking, multitasking thoughts & actions, fine motor skills, manual dexterity, and so much more!
Basics of Magic
Card Tricks / Coin Tricks
Close-Up Magic Technique
Showmanship / Creating a Character / Presentation
Flourishes and Object Manipulation
Sleight of Hand & Redirection
Perfecting Your Routine
With community safety in mind, we have created a curriculum that is awesome and can be performed with things kids already have at home. Your child will need: a plastic stick or wand, deck of traditional playing cards, plastic cups (red or blue “solo cups”), several cotton balls, small cotton or silk handkerchief, writing pad or paper, writing utensils, colored paper, envelopes, & 4 quarters. The instructor may add to this list with additional items found at home, as needed.

Should children be allowed to have cell phones in schools? Should wearing helmets be mandatory when bike riding? What’s the better gaming platform – Xbox or PlayStation? Are video games beneficial or harmful? Which is better: the Harry Potter books or movies? These are just some of the issues and questions that kids ponder every day. You have an opinion, but how do you prove your opinion is the better opinion?
Working off a foundation of voice, speech, and diction, we use debate and round table discussions to teach students the art of organizing and articulating ideas, structuring and supporting arguments, listening and countering, and more, in a fun, safe, and non-competitive environment. This summer find your voice in PAW's Debate Camp as you experience the World of WordCraft! This is your chance to get involved, empower yourself, and begin a life-long exploration of the majesty and wonder of words and ideas.
We utilize the Project LEAD curriculum to give students tools to deal with peer-pressure, develop empathy, constructive dialogue, civic-mindedness, self-confidence, public speaking skills, build a powerful vocabulary, an appreciation for words and ideas and learn the finer points of language arts. Words and ideas can change the world!

Camper Review of PAW’s Online Summer Camp Authored By: Meredith, Age 12

When I found out I wouldn’t be physically going to PAW this summer, I was devastated. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like without seeing my friends in person and all my wonderful teachers. After finding out PAW was doing online classes each week, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. On my first day doing it, I had a lot of fun. I did acting and theater games with Ms. Kristy, who I never met before, and had a great time. We did some of my favorite improv games, and although I met Ms. Kristy for the first time, I felt as if I knew her my whole life. I went to that class every day until Wednesday, and on Thursday and Friday, I visited Ms. Haley for singing. I knew Ms. Haley, for she was at the location I went to for the last three summers. She greeted me with a warm welcome when I joined and it was so great to see her and all my other friends in the class. We did vocal warm-ups that I couldn’t forget from the year before and got right into songs from Frozen. We were each assigned a solo from the songs we worked on and after we listened to it once and ran through it once with the lyrics, we performed it without the lyrics a cappella. I had so much fun singing and talking with my old friends and we got to watch videos from our shows we performed the year before and talked about old memories. On Friday, Ms. Haley’s class did a talent show and I enjoyed watching other’s talents. They are all so talented!

I came back for the week of Cats and did the theater games with Ms. Kristy again. I got so many opportunities to participate in their games and skits. On Thursday, I decided to try something new and joined the LOL comedy class with Mr. Jace. I learned so much about how to perform a good joke and what to do when improvising. He was an incredible teacher that gave me skills that I could eventually use in the future. On Friday I joined Ms. Haley’s class again for the talent show. After we got through everyone’s talents, we got to talk about old memories at PAW and play games. It was so great to talk with everyone! I can’t wait to come back next week for another incredible time and I hope I will get to see everyone again! Coming to this online camp each week was truly a breath of fresh air in these unpredictable times.

Camper Review of PAW’s Online Summer Camp Authored By: Amanda, Age 12

Going to PAW’s summer camp are always the absolute best part of my summer! Since the in person summer camps are so amazing, I knew that the online summer camp would be just as good! And I was definitely right, the summer camps have been tremendous! I took the Cats summer workshop and am going to take The Greatest Showman starting Monday. So far I’ve taken acting, singing, and dance, and I absolutely love it! All of the teachers make the summer camp just so much better!

In the mornings, I take singing with Ms. Amy. I had Ms. Amy last year and I couldn’t ask for a better singing teacher. She’s just so kind to everyone and so much fun to be around! We always laugh and crack jokes together, and I’m so happy that we got to see each other again. In the mid-afternoons, I take dance with Ms. Aaylin. This was my first time having her, but it certainly won’t be the last! I love all of her dance choreography and I can honestly say that it’s one of the best! She’s so nice and caring in helping us learn the dance. In the late-afternoon I take acting with Ms. Kelly. Again, I have never had her. But she is just such a great acting teacher! She always picks the best scenes to read and gives the best tips to be the best actor possible! She’s such an uplifting spirit and it makes the energy so positive! Since I’ve had Mr. Joey for 2 years now and we always talk and laugh together, after lunch, Zoe (one of my PAW friends) and I join Ms. Amy and Mr. Joey just to talk a little. Overall, I couldn’t ask for a better way to spend this virtual summer!
