Summer 2014: Three One-Week Musical Theater Camps
Who: Kids entering grades 2-8
What: Theater games, improvisation, script development, stage movement, and live performance!
When: Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm, July 21st – 25th, July 28th – August 1st, and/or August 4th – 8th (after-care available; see below)
Where: Concordia University Theater (Fine Arts Building), corner of NE 27th & Highland
How much: $175 per kid, per week (family discounts available; see below)
Why: Because musical theater is fun, creative, collaborative, and uses all aspects of one’s mind and body!
Family and friends will be invited to a special, fully-staged performance on the last day of each camp at 2pm in the Concordia University Theater.
Each week’s music, story, and performance are completely independent, so kids are encouraged to attend one, two, or all three camps!
Campers will be provided with morning and afternoon snacks, but will need to bring a sack lunch daily.
The registration fee is $175 per kid, per week. A 10% discount is available for additional family members who sign up for camp OR for single campers who register for additional weeks. Examples: 2 kids, 1 week (or 1 kid, 2 weeks) = $332.50 ($175 + $157.50); 3 kids, 1 week (or 1 kid, 3 weeks) = $490 ($175 + $157.50 + $157.50); 2 kids, 2 weeks = $665 ($332.50 x 2)
After-care is available Monday-Thursday, 3-5pm in the Theater: $15 per kid, per day; $10 per day for additional family members. Pre-registration is requested.
Call Sarah Grace Shewbert at 503-544-4308 or email email@example.com to register or for more information. You can also download the registration form (PDF).

About MADE for Kids
MADE for Kids is Music, Art & Drama Education, a community-oriented opportunity for children who live in North and N.E. Portland. Established by Concordia University in 1996, the program is designed to encourage underprivileged children with interactive arts experiences beyond their regular school programs. MADE for Kids incorporates diverse student help from Concordia's theatre, art and elementary education programs. Saturday Arts Carnivals and Summer Camps have featured local artists-in-residence like Will Hornyak and Tears of Joy, while some CU theatre productions and arts activities are Made for Kids. This intergenerational, interscholastic experiment has been supported through grants from the Pamplin Foundation, Herbert Templeton Foundation, Autzen Foundation, Union Pacific Foundation, and the McMenamin Brothers. Recent MADE activities have included Concordia's own Case of the Broken Zoosafone (presented to eight neighboring Elementary schools), Aladdin (Summer Camp), Folk Tales and World Legends (presented at Faubion Elementary classrooms by Concordia education students) and the 2006 original one-act musical Mirror, Mirror, Off the Wall.
MADE for Kids has been made possible in the past by generous grants from The Herbert A Templeton Foundation, The Anne A. Berni Foundation, Wells Fargo and Co., The Wyss Foundation, Union Pacific Foundation, and McMenamins Brothers.
