In spite of the current uncertainties surrounding COVID-19 and state and local mandates for social distancing, the Arts Council of Wilson is moving forward with plans to hold all of its currently-scheduled performing arts summer camps, with some minor modifications to ensure the health and safety of all of campers.

If for any reason the Arts Council is unable to move forward with a particular camp due to state/local mandates, a prompt refund will be issued to all enrollees.

The first scheduled theater camp will be “Madagascar: A Musical Adventure Jr.” Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, “Madagascar” follows all of the favorite madcap characters as they escape from the zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the outlandish world of King Julien’s tropical rainforest kingdom. This one-week camp will run from July 6-10, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is open to performers age 5-15.

The second theater camp will be “Frozen Jr.,” based on the modern classic from Disney. Elsa, Anna and the magical land of Arendelle will be brought to life onstage, with all of the memorable songs from the animated film. This is a two-week camp that will run from July 20-31 (weekdays only) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is open to performers age 5-15.
