Participants in the Creative Arts/Enrichment camp, offered through Weston Youth Services, capped off their three-week camp with a performance for family and friends on July 20. Under the leadership of Jean Dovo, Liz Ward, and Jane Jessup, the campers, entering grades 3-6, created the props and scenery used in the performance, entitled, “Opposite Flow.”
The campers created and choreographed their own dance and musical ensembles and applied their artistic talents in creating a group conceived illustration representing a fun place and the joy of life and being a kid, reported Charlene Monn, Weston Youth Services program coordinator. The finale consisted of a choreographed group ensemble dancing to the music of “Home.”
Throughout the three weeks, the participants also learned about cooking under the direction of Cathy Klein and Shelley McConnell. They made their own food and by the end of camp, had tasted different types from around the world.
The mural, described as colorful and vibrant, was created at the camp and donated to a Domestic Violence Awareness Center Safe House.
