The Refinery Arts & Spirit Centre
609 Dufferin Ave, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, S7N 1C4

Lucky participants are introduced to the magic of puppets and puppet theatre. In addition to constructing their very own puppet character, your child will have the chance to explore different styles of puppetry, working with existing puppets and creating new characters.

We will be creating stories using whatever characters the kids want to create (Minecraft, princesses, ponies, avengers… anything!). The emphasis will be on having fun, involving everyone and making stories that are well rounded. We will explore shadow puppets, rod puppets and hand puppets and film some scenes to make YouTube videos (videos will feature puppets, not children) for sharing with family and friends.

A day at Puppet Camp is a day well spent. Campers spend lots of time up and moving as they engage in theatre games and explorations. Then, to slow things down a bit, they concentrate on designing and building their very own puppets. The 5-day, weeklong camp ends with a performance for family and friends in The Auditorium. Participants will be proud to take home their own creations on the last day of camp.
Ages: 5-6yrs, 7-9yrs and/or 10-12yrs
Hours: 9-4pm
Students are required to bring a packed lunch, all puppet supplies are included in the fee.

Includes tickets to The Adventures of The Gingerbread Man on February 15th!
