Early registration encouraged for MAC camp

Space limited to 20 children aged 8-12 years for drama camp at Parksville's McMillan Arts Centre Aug. 17-22

Summer is just around the corner and The McMillan Arts Centre in Parksville has announced it will host a six-day summer drama camp this August for children ages 8-12 years old. Although the camp doesn’t start for a few months, early registration is recommended as the workshop is limited to 20 participants.

Over the course of five days, the children will co-operatively put together a drama piece. Participants will be involved in drama games, improvisations and story-building activities. They will then share their work with family and friends on the final day.

The class will be led by drama instructor Linda Watson, who has over 25 years of experience in the public school system as a drama/theatre director.

The camp will run August 17-22 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. The cost is $100, which includes all supplies.

For more information or to register, contact the MAC at 250-248-8185. You can also email info@mcmillanartscentre.com.
