Logistics: Camp takes place at the Theater in the Wood. Where we use the theater, the theater stage, lobby, and the outside property for all our rehearsals and camp activities. Kids ages 7-14 come prepared to have fun filled days including acting, singing, dancing, crafting, creating, playing games, listening to and reading stories, and enjoying the fresh outdoors!

Pick up will occur Monday through Thursday between 4:00 pm and 4:15 pm in the same fashion. Once all campers arrive, we start our planned activities & rehearsals! Throughout the day we have blocks dedicated to learning a foundation of:
Auditioning – Campers will learn a dance, sing a song, and read some lines alongside other campers of similar ages, and will be cast appropriately for age & ability!
Acting – Once roles are announced, campers will rehearse scenes from the performance;
Dance – Campers will learn dances that will take place in their show;

Games – Some fun theater & camp inspired games to make playtime, fun and inventive
Story Time – where we can read & share stories and talk about the art of storytelling
Outdoor Adventure – Where campers are taken out on our fantastic trail system for some interaction with nature.

Our very own News Director Christian Mower took up the task of no shaving for the entire month of November to show his support for the Kevin Peare Memorial Skate Park. The Organization held their 2nd annual Grow A Beard for KP competition this past month with beard growers competing for four different categories; Glorious Beard, Red Beard, Viking Beard, and Perfect Beard.
Mower decided he would throw away the razor for a month to help spread the word about this great cause in the Mount Washington Valley.
You can see his transformation from baby smooth 12-year-old looking Mower to burly bearded Mower below.
Mower Took a selfie every weekday during the month to document his beard-formation, which you can check out in the Gif. below.
The Kevin Peare Memorial Skate Park has all sorts of great and creative fundraisers happening all the time. The next one they have is a Holly Jolly Christmas event on December 9th at the Albany Town Hall. They are also looking for artist in the valley to participate in their Annual Skate-Art Show.
So far the Skate Park has raised almost $25,000 and there’s still a long way to go! For the latest information on all the great fundraisers the Kevin Peare Memorial Skate Park has going on, visit the Kevin Peare Memorial Skate Park Facebook Page!

California-based singer/songwriter Jason Mraz makes laid-back, melodic pop with stylistic nods toward folk, jam band music, hip-hop, and soft rock. Since coming to the public’s attention with his 2002 hit single “The Remedy (Don’t Worry)”, Mraz has proven himself to be a reliable pop craftsman whose crowd-pleasing melodies can encompass both cheeky humor and earnest sincerity.
Born in Mechanicsville, Virginia, in 1977, Mraz grew up amidst the sounds of the Dave Matthews Band and local roots musicians the Agents of Good Roots. However, it was Mraz’s interest and participation in musical theater that served as his first introduction to music. Following high school, he moved to New York to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, but dropped out a year later when he took up the guitar and began to focus on songwriting. Nonetheless, Mraz’s training as a vocalist would later show itself on his debut album, which was marked by the pure clarity of his tenor range.
Over his career, Mraz has won two Grammy Awards and received two additional nominations, and has also won two Teen Choice Awards, a People’s Choice Award and the Hal David Songwriters Hall of Fame Award. He has earned Platinum and multi-Platinum certifications in over 20 countries, and has toured in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and parts of Africa. As of July 2014, Mraz has sold over seven million albums and over 11.5 million downloaded singles.
Amiable West Coast singer/songwriter Brett Dennen first drew attention in 2004 with the single “Desert Sunrise.” The tune, with its easy groove and soulful phrasing, garnered enough spins on KCRW to warrant the release of his self-titled debut the following year. Stylistically, Dennen’s thoughtful, laid-back tunes fit in with the burgeoning singer/songwriter scene that had produced stars like Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson..
When he wasn’t headlining his own tours, he could be found opening bills for Dave Matthews, Taj Mahal, Ziggy Marley, and Jackson Browne, among others. Dennen’s fifth studio effort, Smoke and Mirrors, was a success and landed Dennen in Billboard’s Top 200 for the first time.
