- Omaha Community Playhouse (theater camp)
- UNO Aim for the Stars (science camp)
- UNO Basketball Camp
- Hummel Day Camp (outdoor rough and tumble camp)
Last week they started their first camp at Omaha Community Playhouse.
I don't mean to sound negative, but...
- In the past they had a performance up on stage. They didn't do that this year. A lot of parents didn't know what they were doing, or where to go.
- Mica said he didn't know what his group was doing at all.
- My Mom was unable to go down the steps to see Isaak preform. She had Polio, so her legs don't work the best.
- The boys performed in different spots, so I had to run back and forth from downstairs to upstairs.
- It seemed like a scattered mess - unfortunately. It's really too bad because the boys actually do have fun at that camp. I've always had great things to say about it.
Where there's a negative there's a positive, so...
- Isaak's class did seem to have it together. I don't know if his teacher has been there longer, or what the deal was.
- Isaak learned about puppets, which I love. He made a cardboard mask, and worked with shadow puppets.
- Mica's performance was more like a bunch of games. He did learn to project his voice. My parents said that he was easy to hear, and moved around well, which is what they were supposed to do.
- They enjoyed each day. The camp seemed to wear them out pretty well. They were tired around 8. For summer that's a great thing.
- I think this is the first year they have gotten t-shirts.
Isaak's class acted out the story from the book, The Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters.
Then his class made shadow puppets. They acted out fairytales. This was The Gingerbread Man. They did the voices behind the puppets as well.
I went up some steps to peek in on Mica's group. They were just playing acting games, but didn't really perform anything.
This is really the best photo I could get, since I had 2 kids in different spots. I didn't get a good seat.
My parents did say that Mica acted out his exercise really well. I was hoping for more. I think all of us were.
I took photos of the boys with their theater shirts on at The KANEKO Museum that night.
Have you ever been disappointed in something you were once happy with?
