Arts on Stage

Campers love a day out to the theater, and Arts on Stage makes it easier than ever for educators to find the perfect show for their group. Each show online comes with a grade level suggestion, as well as a study guide to enrich the experience. Shows start at 10:15AM and noon, so everyone is sure to be back by dismissal. Then, all educators need to decide is what the focus shall be. Science? Check out Butterfly: The Story of a Life Cycle. Social Studies? Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. Multiculture? Choose between The Shanghai Chinese Acrobatic Circus or the Calpulli Mexican Dance.

Indoor Entertainment - Arcades Fun Facts

Have campers take a (quick) break from the fun on the next trip to an indoor amusement center, and have them think about the design and day-to-day operations of the venue. How is it designed and laid out? What games and features (batting cages, arcade games, redemption games) go where, and why? Have them take a look around at how many people are there enjoying themselves; what is the maximum number of occupants, and why? How does the management go about heating and cooling the venue at different times of the year?

Speak to the staff about these questions; learn the "why" behind how things are arranged, and consider the role of safety. Relate this to how things are organized and what the rules are back at the camp.
