About The Camp
The Young People's Center for Creative Arts invites your child to experience theater, music, art, and self-expression at our YPCCA Junior camp! Open to students entering first grade through sixth grade, YPCCA Junior will offer workshops in all aspects of theater. At YPCCA Junior, your child will be able to express her or his creativity in a supportive environment. Not only will your child learn new songs and dances, they will also build skills in cooperation and listening while creating lasting friendships and gaining confidence. The one week camp will culminate with a production of our summer junior show with every student in the camp playing a role in the production.
Each day begins with Welcome & Games from 9:00-9:30 run by the staff for the entire camp to get all the kids ready for the day. Next, the kids take part in a Theater Workshop where they learn about acting and being on stage. 10:30-11:15 is spent in Music Rehearsal, singing songs from the show and enjoying music. A Hands-On Art Workshop will meet before lunch where the kids will work on crafts and projects. Lunch & Games is held from 12:00-12:45, students bring their own lunch and juice is provided. The afternoon is spent rehearsing for the production of our summer YPCCA Junior show.
YPCCA Junior is excited to announce this summer's production:
Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime. Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. follows all of your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.
Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York's Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world.
