Theatre Wakefield Camp

Theatre Camp is back! 

Two 1-week camps for Ages 9+

One 2-week camp for ages 12+


Legends, Fables and Fairy Tales

In this year’s Theatre Wakefield Summer Camp, we will be exploring animal fables, legends and fairy tales that come to us from the fonts of wisdom (and perhaps other places too). Through movement, speech, imagination and observation, we will create characters, learn to work together as an ensemble, as well as put our new skills to use in forming a theatre piece. An exciting program for ages 9 and up!

For more information on camp, please contact Leanne Olson at 613-263-3157 or info@theatrewakefield.ca (please do not call the Centre Wakefield La Pêche).
