IMG_8544Hello everyone! It’s a beautiful Manitou day and we are fully in the swing of Session 2!

Yesterday was our first full day of second session, and everyone was ready to jump right into things. Our day began with campers trying out their options for daily warm-ups after breakfast. We have the option of yoga, dance, theatre games, and body and voice to start our day. Each camper got to try all of the warm-ups so that they could decide what will work best for them for the rest of the session. Then we went off to our first Masterclass, which are led by our fabulous directors.

After Masterclasses, campers heard from our elective teachers about the classes they will be teaching this week.  Our teaching artists are offering a wide array of classes-- from Storytelling through Folk Song to Power Up (a fan favorite last session), it's going to be a great week of classes!

In the afternoon, everyone had a show Q&A with our five directors and our musical directors, and then had some audition workshops. The audition workshops helped walk the campers through what they need to do to have a fantastic audition.

Our evening activity was our Staff Showcase, where our bunk counselors, senior staff, and directors displayed their variety of incredible (and sometimes unusual) talents for the campers.  This was followed by a S'mores Social in our Mini Ampitheater.  Campers had to make a S'more for someone they didn't know and get to know each other while they munched on these yummy snacks!

Here's to a great session!
