2019 ALL-DAY CAMP

PLAY SESSIONS

One of the best part of All-Day Urban Camp is that you get to try not one, not two, but THREE different activities! Check out some of the options you'll have to choose from. All Play Sessions are led by seasoned instructors with a vast array of experiences and backgrounds. Not only do you get all the instructions and guidance you need, but we make sure that all the supplies are ready for you to dive right in. What's going to turn into your next hobby?

Here's what we did at Camp in 2019

LET'S GET PSYCHICAL

Bunraku Puppetry is a form of Japanese puppetry that dates back to the 16th century. It requires 3 people to operate the puppet and make it come to life. We'll be making our own puppets using newspaper, masking tape and string (a quick form of mocking up a puppet) so that we can then learn how to make it breathe, stand up and walk. All without talking to each other. It's a magical feeling to make an inanimate object become real in a matter of a few well-coordinated movements.
