Who is this camp for?
Boys and girls entering 3rd through 7th grade in the fall of 2016 who want to learn amazing feats of magic and illusion can now experience the most exciting hands-on program ever!
What will campers do?
Campers will construct and learn some of the great “tricks of the trade.” Some highlights of the program are: card tricks, sleight of hand, misdirection, coin magic, rope tricks, street magic, mind reading skills, improv games, performing tips, and more! Campers will also improve eye-hand coordination, multi-task thinking, and communication skills as they interact with their teachers and fellow campers helping to build self-esteem and confidence.
What is each day like?
A typical day will include magic classes that focus on technical and performance skills, games, crafts and plenty of time to practice those new skills. Each camper will create their very own magic kit with all the materials and special items included in the tuition. We will be joined by surprise guests who will join us for special sessions. On Friday we will extend our time at camp in order to rehearse and then present a magic show for the student’s families featuring all the campers and a performance by David Black and Julia.
What do campers need to bring?
Campers need to bring lots of imagination, a positive attitude, comfortable clothes and shoes and a bag lunch.
