A one week morning day camp will be offered Monday, August 22 – Friday, August 26, 8:30 – 12:30, for children aged 6 through 12 years old at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 48 Middle Street, Gloucester, MA. “Cape Ann Arts Alive” will offer music and more as we explore Cape Ann through the lively arts.
Campers will have opportunities to sing and make music, participate in movement, creative drama and dance, write haiku and more. The camp experience will culminate with a showcase of the week’s highlights at 11:30 AM for family and friends.
Drama and music will combine as we discover the stories of colorful, local characters Howard Blackburn, the Witch of Dogtown and the Gloucester Sea Serpent.
