Guest Blog: Summer Camp from a Volunteer’s Point of View

Two weeks at Theatre Action Project summer camp and those days were filled with adventures a plenty. I have experienced realms and fantastic tales – I have even journeyed around the world! My right-brained world has been re-awakened with songs, plays, artwork, Shakespearean quotes, and most important of all – imagination. This was accomplished with the help of the most creative children and staff I have ever encountered! What a joy it has been to experience such colors and sounds – and all through the eyes of a child. It is an experience I will never forget!

“To watch imagination grow in front of you is truly amazing. That is exactly what has happened to my two boys and myself.”

After participating in two weeks of TAP, the creative side of us all has blossomed and our right brain has exploded with fun. All of the teachers have been able to “tap” into our imaginations like never before. The creative and passionate team members that facilitate and volunteer throughout the camp made all this possible. Bravo to all of those who have touch a child’s imagination – and did it all with enthusiasm, joy and most of all, FUN, FUN, FUN!!!!
