Participants enjoy an acting class at the first WRAPS Kids Arts Camp in Ashcroft.

First Kids Arts Camp a huge success

The first WRAPS Kids Arts Camp goes off without a hitch.

This past week was the first “Under W.R.A.P.S Kids’ Arts Camp, presented by the Winding Rivers Arts and Performance Society, with three different types of classes for the participants to enjoy. The art portion was presented by Jo Petty, aided by local SuperMom Susan McLean. The kids painted, made mosaics, and drew wonderful pictures.

Nadine Davenport, with Pamela Ainge, taught the kids about musical rounds and how to keep a beat, and Kamloops star Sabrina Weeks taught harmony and voice skills.

Throughout the four-day camp Sydney Wolstenholme, with the help of Gareth Smart, taught the art of drama. Some of the subjects tackled were story telling, character development, and improv, with stage fighting for the older kids. There were also drama games and lots of silliness!

Two dozen kids participated, making this first camp a great success, and the plan is to make next year’s even bigger and better. A big thank you goes out to everyone who made the camp possible: parents, teachers, and especially all the kids who took part and had fun.
