WILD SWAN THEATER ANNOUNCES
CAMP DoYaWANNA 2019 SUMMER CAMPS

ANN ARBOR – Wild Swan Theater is offering a lineup of drama camps once again this summer. Camps begin June 17th and run through August 2nd, with sessions available for children ages 4-12. Wild Swan Theater drama camps are fun experiences where kids can feel safe and comfortable exploring the imaginative world of theater. Our main goal is that every camper has a great time cultivating their creativity and leaves camp feeling successful. Activities include warm-ups, theater games, and improvisations that bring people together in a nurturing, memorable way. Some weeks also include craft activities such as making props and costume pieces.

Class registration is available through our website at www.wildswantheater.org or by calling our office at 734-995-0530 now. All classes are held at Wild Swan Theater’s office and studio space at 6175 Jackson Road, between Zeeb and Baker Roads. Camp DoYaWanna sessions for the 2019 Summer are:
