TYKEs Vacation Day Camps

Wednesday, November 11 – Veteran's Day
8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Optional before-camp care from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. available at no extra cost.
Hart Theater
Ages 8 and up

This new vacation day program offers the unique opportunity for fun and friendly theater competition. Children will use their imagination to create an on-stage "TV commercial" promoting an innovative new product they've invented themselves to solve a world problem. Participants will select their own topics, write and rehearse their scripts (memorization not required), and create their unique products using craft supplies and recycled materials. We'll explore the concept of "tikkun olam" and brainstorm cool things kids can do to help "repair the world." Commercials will "air" live on stage at 5:30 p.m. for friends and family to enjoy!

$70 Members: $60 per day
