CONCORD – Camp Cannon offers several drama camps for both experienced and aspiring actors ages 6-17.

Campers ages 7-10 can learn popular songs while channeling their favorite TV star in “Glee Club,” offered June 17-21. Or they can participate in “Acting Shakespeare,” for ages 13-17, and build fundamental acting skills by bringing Shakespeare’s characters to life. Camp Cannon offers “Drama: Dr. Cannoli’s Crazy Cures” for campers ages 6-9 who are interested in exploring drama through a play inspired by the book, “Mrs. Piggle Wiggle,” from July 22-26.

The youngest campers, ages 3-5, explore the world of Curious George, Dr. Seuss and Blue’s Clues in individually-themed weeks through stories, crafts, games and other activities. Children ages 4-7 can enjoy visits from princesses during “Princess Tea Party” or create crafts based on familiar stories in “Story Time Drawing.”

“Daring All Girls,” ages 7-10, allows campers to use “The Daring Book for Girls” to come up with creative ideas and exciting projects while understanding the spirit of cooperation and friendship. American Girl dolls get dressed up for “Adventures for the American Girl,” ages 6-12.

An annual favorite, “Harry Potter: Magical Mystery Tour,” for children ages 6-11 has campers following in Harry’s footsteps playing quidditch, writing with invisible ink and more in a hands-on science approach. For a more artistic take, campers can enjoy “Potter and Skywalker: Come to Life Through Art,” where children ages 6-11 learn to draw the characters from Harry Potter and Star Wars books and create movie props.
