Camp Dates: June 21-25, 2021
We will be communicating with you before, during, and after camp, via our Facebook page. Please “like” the page so that you will see our posts and pictures in your newsfeed!
Fine Arts Day Camp is open to children who are currently in grades kindergarten through 6th grade in the 2020/2021 school year. Current 6th-grade students may register this year due to camp being canceled in 2020 due to covid.
Covid policies and protocols are being looked at and updated weekly. We have not finalized our plans for FADC but here a few things that are currently in place. The size of each group will be smaller along with the overall camp size. We will have “one-way” hallways, limited homemade snacks, and as of today, Bent Tree is still asking our elementary age kids to wear a mask. Servants and staff are currently wearing masks as well. Please keep in mind that these policies could change by mid-June and we will keep you updated if/when they do.
Friday: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Performance: 6:30 p.m.
All campers are placed in a small group and spend the week together as a group, while participating in larger group activities. If you are bringing a guest, or are a guest of someone, please be sure to indicate the other campers’ names on your registration form. This is the best way to ensure that your child will be placed in a small group with his/her guest. Campers who are more than one year apart in age will not typically be placed in a small group together. If you have a special request regarding small groups, please let us know. Camper group assignments will be emailed to parents the week prior to camp.
Lunch & Snacks
Campers will bring their own sack lunches each day and will eat together with their small group. A fun and creative snack will be provided each day during camp. If you are serving, you will be contacted via email about purchasing lunch.
Please note that due to the number of children and servants we serve, we are not able to prepare gluten-free or allergy-free snacks. If your child has food allergies, please be sure to indicate this on your registration and plan to send an alternative snack with your camper to camp. A snack list will be provided in your information packet the week before camp so you can prepare accordingly.
Your camper will be involved in a variety of activities during the week, including learning cool dance moves, participating in improvisational drama, and singing their hearts out learning all the fun songs for the musical. Early in the week, the kids will be painting set pieces for the performance. They will be using latex paint that will not come out of their clothes. We will be providing them with old t-shirts to use as paint smocks, but you might also want to send them in clothes that you would not mind them getting paint on.
Get ready for Wacky Wednesday! On Wednesday we encourage the kids to dress as wacky as they can. Let them get creative and mix it up a little. Encourage them to pick a character and come dressed as that character. Crazy socks, wild hair-do's, and shirts inside-out are just the tip of the iceberg with what they can come up with. This will be a great outlet for the kids’ creativity, so let’s get wacky! Volunteers are encouraged to participate in the wackiness as well.
Thursday will be Jersey Thursday! Kids and volunteers are encouraged to wear their favorite team’s jersey or t-shirt.
