Summer Camp Brings Lasting Memories

by Erik Weasenforth, Marketing Associate VISTA

I remember as a kid, the excitement of the last day of school. Once I got off of the bus I would rush home as fast as I could because I looked forward to all the things I would do that summer with no homework to do! One of the things I looked forward to during summers was camp. I never attended a sleepover camp as a kid, but had gone to several basketball camps, Boy Scout day camp, and a computer game camp.

Every camp was different in its own way, but I’d always leave each camp with the same things:

  • New skills/knowledge learned
  • A sense of accomplishment and improvement (trophies, medals, prizes, good experiences, new skills)
  • New friends

Like all camps, Theatre Action Project (TAP) will give kids those 3 things and more. At TAP Summer Camps, kids will learn new skills (dance, film, creative thinking), make new friends, and learn lessons that will help them grow to be Creative Artists, Courageous Allies, Critical Thinkers, and Confident Leaders in their communities. Campers will come away with memories that will last a lifetime.

P.S. My favorite Summer Camp memory was winning 3 contests (free throws, 3 on 3, and shooting challenge) at 7th grade basketball camp.
