My summers as a kid were never structured in the traditional sense: no camps, no sports, no classes, no extended vacations to faraway places. There were a number of reasons why—I had 2 parents that were home all summer, and I was a very curious, self-directed child who always wrote and completed a list of summer projects.
While this worked out for me, I do wonder what my summers would have been like if I got to spend them going to fun camps like those we offer here at Theatre Action Project (TAP).
I challenge you to sit down and create your own list of summer goals, and include at least one self-directed challenge to give back to your community.
Here are some of the ways that you can experience the joy of Summer through a child’s eyes with TAP:
- Volunteer at one of our 4 Summer Camp locations. We are particularly in need of volunteers in the mornings during June. Fill out our application form to join us!
- Volunteer to assist with Summer Pageant in the Park classroom programming
- Help TAP construct large puppetry elements on Summer Pageant Build Days
- Come into our offices to help us with various craft and data entry needs.
Make it a priority this summer to give time to TAP.
