So we’ll have expanded free time: long music jams, games, hiking, or just hanging out having fun. Rhonda, Alex, and Ruth will teach weeklong rapper dance class for teens and adults: it’s a fast-moving, intensely athletic dance form from the north of England. Kalia will hold a crafts session, and others on staff will lead intriguing one-off workshops, and you’re invited to lead a workshop, too. So, campers—think of great music, silly stunts, or goofy games that you’d like to share, and bring ’em out! We’ll also have age-specific activities for the youngest campers built into the program.|
