Aaliyah Cabellero-Cortez '23, a senior majoring in theatre at SUNY Potsdam, discusses her leadership role at the Creative Arts Camp, as she works with drama students to create and memorize scripts, before performing for a live audience in the Black Box Theater.

Campers can choose from four separate tracks, depending on their interests:

Creative Arts Camp Image9 - 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 - 3 p.m.
$250 per session
$450 for both sessions
K – 3rd grade

Each day campers will explore a variety of art forms including the visual arts, drama and dance.  Visual art mediums will include drawing, watercolor and collage. The August 6th final presentation will exhibit work made throughout the camp. 

Note: K-3 campers who sign up for a morning AND afternoon session must bring lunch. Supervision and activities will be provided during the hour break between the morning and afternoon. 

Drama Image9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
4th – 7th grade
8th – 12th grade

Drama campers start with team building exercises. They go on to explore improvisation, learn the basics of acting and rehearse scripted plays.  Both 4th- 7th graders and 8th - 12th graders perform their play on August 6th.

Creative Writing Image9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
4th – 8th grade

Campers exploring this art form write in a variety of genres including short stories, poems, non-fiction and plays.  Additionally, they review exemplary forms of the styles they are writing in, both as print and video. Not every moment of the day is spent reading and writing, however, as the campers will engage in other activities to explore their creative style. A final exhibition of their work will take place August 6th with readings of work selected by the campers themselves.

Dance Image9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
4th - 8th grade

Campers will learn the fundamentals of dance in a fun and relaxed setting.  They will develop awareness of their bodies and how they move in space. A variety of styles of dance will be explored, including ballet, jazz, and modern. Finally, they will experience the choreographic process in preparation for their performance on August 6th. Beginners are welcome and will receive special attention to ensure they learn technique safely.
