With shadow puppets, simple finger puppets and marionettes we’ll explore the voices and characters of these flexible friends.  Campers will work with fabric, foam, felt, and paper mâché to create animals, people, and fantasy characters along with constructing sets for their plays. Children will develop a short script, translate their two-dimensional ideas into three dimensional forms, then perform their puppet play at the end of the week.

All camps are for children ages 6 to 12. Children must be turning 6 during the calendar year to register. Camps run Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm with free before and after care (8:00 to 8:30 am and 4:30 pm to 5:00 pm).

Join us this summer as we bring Art Camps back to Museum London. Our summer camps are fun, safe, and educational. Campers can express themselves through creative practice and outdoor activities. The combination of our world class art collection and rich natural surroundings allows Museum London to offer campers a complete summer experience, combining outdoor recreation with art-making activities. As a member of HIGH FIVE, we’re committed to excellence in children’s recreational programming.

Camps include exhibition tours, demonstrations, and hands-on activities. Recreational activities include hikes, games, and trips to the park and splash pad.
