Camper to Staff ratio
Campers are placed in small groups according to the grade entering in the fall of 2017. Each group is led by an adult teaching artist and a teaching assistant. All of our teaching artists are seasoned professionals who have a background and professional life in theater and teaching and who love working at our camp.
Our camper to staff ratio is as follows: One staff member for every five campers ages 4 and 5; one staff member for every six campers ages 6 to 8; and one staff member for every eight campers ages 9 to 14.
White Bird is happy to accommodate a request for placement for your child with one other child. This information can be included on the registration form in the “Please inform us of any special information necessary to care for your child” section.
All requests for placement must be made in advance, by the Friday before your child’s first day of camp. No late requests, or requests for group changing on the first day of camp will be accommodated.
Each week campers will develop and perform a theater piece. The professional staff of adult teaching artists will work with the campers to create and develop a performance that will be presented each Friday for family and friends.
