Program Description: A new camp for 2019, as an integral part of dramatic play, puppets are an enormously popular tool used by different cultures throughout history to tell stories. Truly ANYTHING can serve as a puppet! In this camp, participants will explore basic storytelling with the help of finger puppets, paper bag puppets, flat puppets, glove puppets, sock puppets and finally shadow puppets. Come laugh with us as we create original puppets to tell our stories!
