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!

Welcome to the ultimate artistic form of expression and discover the power of the voice! Spoken Word is a way of allowing your audience to hear and feel poetry in the most memorable and dramatic way. Slam poetry, open mics, and dramatic monologues are often where Performance Poetry is delivered. Our campers will learn how to create and express their poetry in a way that is memorable, moving, and impactful! They will learn how to deliver and perform poetry through projection, annunciation and rhythm. Drawing inspiration from memories, topics they are passionate about, and even from personal experiences, our poets will write and compose their own poems and have the opportunity to deliver them aloud as a performance piece.
This workshop will take your child’s expression and passion to another level while working on their public speaking skills, presentation and expanding on self-awareness. Along this journey they will also learn about memorization, rhyming, storytelling, articulation, directness while engaging their audience and giving their own written word a voice!

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

Perfecting Your Routine
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.

Make Friends, Make Memories, Make Magic!
Should children be allowed to have cell phones in schools? Should wearing helmets be mandatory when bike riding? Are video games beneficial or harmful? Is protecting wildlife important? Is access to clean water a right or a privilege? Is it better to adopt or shop for your pet? 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 that your opinion is the better opinion? In this summer camp workshop, kids will delve into a world of wordcraft where they will learn how to “find their voice” and empower themselves.
Working off of a foundation of voice, speech, and diction, campers will go on a journey through a variety of age-appropriate and relevant debate topics. Using debate and group discussions, we 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 unique summer camp experience equips kids to share their perspectives and debate with confidence, empathy, respect, and conviction. They will learn how to take the information they are absorbing, determine credibility, read between the lines, analyze it, and then learn how to form and express their own opinions.
Campers will focus on developing their skills under common debate categories including: Delivery, Courtesy, Appropriate Tone, Organization, Logic, Support, Cross Examination, and Refutation. They will learn how to structure arguments, find credible evidence, roadmap their points, ask cross examination questions, and consider opposing arguments. They will also walk away with skills in active listening, collaboration, public speaking, leadership, critical thinking, and civic mindedness.
Words and ideas can change the world!

5-7 Year Old Campers
To maintain a sense of community for campers between the ages of 5-7, we offer a prearranged day of singing in the early morning class, followed by acting in the mid-morning class and end with an exciting dance class in the afternoon. Our young campers will follow one special teacher throughout their camp day, which will allow them the opportunity to foster a greater comfort level, develop a closer bond, and truly enjoy each workshop over the course of the week.
An adult must be present in the room for children ages 5-7.
8-14 Year Old Campers
Campers between the ages of 8-14 can truly à la carte their camp experience! Every PAW workshop is designed as a mini “master class”, allowing campers to structure each day to suite their unique interests. Your child can select to follow a set series of workshops each day, to sample classes they have never tried but have always been curious about, or to advance by following their favorite workshop and enjoy the next curriculum offered by that teacher. Our camp is intentionally designed to encourage & empower our campers by providing the ultimate arts experience they can have!
An adult must be present in the home for children ages 8-14.

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.
