Summer Camp 2022
Since 2005, it has been our privilege to provide unique and fun summer learning opportunities for students ages five to sixteen. There are different activities during each of our four summer camp weeks. We are blessed with a beautiful, comfortably shady backyard, so that we are able to be inside (air conditioned) and outside throughout the day.
All programs have been designed right here at Renaissance Kids, Inc. We teach real skills in fun and imaginative ways, and strongly believe that music and the arts provide positive outlets for individual expression. Our camps, like our year-round classes, provide opportunities for students to work effectively with others and as individuals. We strive to inspire students to seek creative solutions to problems and to help them discover their full potential.
A description of what is covered during each of the Summer Camp weeks can be found below. The camp day runs from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, Monday through Friday. For parents needing an early drop-off (8:00 am) or late pick-up, please pre-arrange the days and times that you need. The cost is $12.00 per hour for the amount of time that you would like. Students that are here for after hours partake in arts and crafts activities, music activities, and can even learn elementary piano if they are interested. There is an early-bird discount for registering by April 16, 2022, and an additional discount for currently-registered Renaissance Kids students (please refer to the registration form for details). All campers should bring a lunch, snack, and extra water. Feel free to call us with any questions.
Session 1: July 11 to 15 – Musical Theater for Ages 5-16
Campers of all skill levels will have fun performing in a short production. Students are immersed in all aspects of the process, including building sets and making costumes. This is a fun way to practice and develop skills in acting, singing, speaking, reading, and memorization. There are also lots of fun games and music activities designed to help performers become comfortable and confident on the stage. Students will be grouped age appropriately. There is a performance at the end of the week.
Session 2: July 18 to 22 – Claymation Movie-Making for Ages 8-16
Campers work in age-appropriate groups to create their original animated movies. Finished movies are posted on our YouTube Channel. Students work hands-on, from the initial idea, to creating the story-board, designing and building the sets, character design and creation, planning the shots, lighting, camera work, recording dialogue, sound, visual effects, and editing. There will be a movie screening at the end of the week.
Session 3: Aug 1 to 5 - Music Video Production for Ages 8-16
Make a music video! Students participate in phases of the production, from the initial idea to creating the concept and story-line, designing and building the set, planning the shots, acting, lighting, camera work, sound, dialogue, effects, and editing. All skill levels welcome. It is NOT required that students play an instrument or sing. There will be a movie screening at the end of the week, and all participants receive a link to watch their movie.
Session 4: Aug 15 to 19 - Art & Music Around the World for Ages 5-16
Learn about people and places throughout the world through arts and crafts, music, games, story- telling, and other fun activities.

There will be an exhibit and a performance at the end of the week. Students will be grouped age appropriately.
Session 5: Aug 22 to 26 - Designing Clothing, Costumes, & Accessories for Ages 8-16
Campers create their own fashion and unique designs. The camp will cover elements of design, color, draping, sewing, types of fabrics, types of fibers, and pattern-making. Students will be grouped according to age. Each groups activities will be tailored to their age group. No prior experience is required. This camp is suitable for beginners or any level of experience. Students should bring at least one or two items to embellish or “repurpose.” We will also be creating new items, and invite students to bring in any fabric, buttons, etc. that they may already have at home and want to use.
