Cre8tive Drama
Day Camp

July 8-12, 2024

Ashe County Little Theatre  presents "Cre8tive Drama Day Camp," a week-long summer day camp packed with fun drama and theatre activities. Appalachian State University faculty member Gordon Hensley and his trained teacher assistants lead these lively classes.

The camp is $100 per child for the week.  A limited number of scholarships are available, please email with scholarship request. 

 The curriculum utilizes eight drama structures. Process style drama activities are lead by trained teachers of theatre to strengthen eight areas: developing and strengthening language and communication, problem solving, positive self-concept, social awareness, empathy, values and attitudes, and developing an understanding of the art of theatre.
