Milwaukee Public Theatre announces open registration for SuperStars Camp, a lively, interactive two-week summer arts and drama camp for children on the Autism spectrum and their siblings and friends, ages 4 and up.
“A day at SuperStars Camp consists of music, drama, movement and art,” said Julie Borouchoff, lead teacher (and clown). “Using the arts as our vehicle, we work on building self-esteem, social skills, and having fun. This year our theme will be We Can Make the World a Better Place. “Campers” will express themselves through painting, drawing, singing, dancing/movement, script writing, acting and other creative modalities.”
In addition to MPT artist Julie Borouchoff, other teachers are certified in Autism, the arts, and education. A light healthy snack is provided each day. Activities are tailored to fit the needs and ages of individual children. All children participate in the final upbeat public performance for family and friends on Friday, June 26 at 11 am.
The sessions will be held from 9 to 11:30 am, Monday through Friday, June 15-19 and June 22-26, at St. Marcus School, 2215 N. Palmer Street, Milwaukee. The fee for the two-week session is $100 per child. Contact Julie Borouchoff at 414-699-9013 with questions. A downloadable application form can be found at www.milwaukeepublictheatre.org.
