“I don’t really know what you did but it works!”
“(My son) has grown socially, and he’s been in the company of very smart kids and instructors. I think in general drama programs are very good for kids who are still finding their way, socially.”
“Language on Steroids! (This camp) is a foundation for future study and appreciation.”
“The camp curriculum is extensive and the kids get the whole experience—learning lines, being on stage, practicing swordplay, adding their own panache to the performance, wearing costumes, and much more. I highly recommend this camp. The staff are trustworthy, knowledgeable, and most of all fun!”
“The discipline of learning their lines and stage direction, the exposure to the literature in an active way, the incredible staff.”
“My kids were pushed to perform in ways beyond their comfort zone (this was a good thing!) Now they are really proud!”
“I know that Superheroes has increased her self-esteem and self-confidence. It has also assisted her socialization skills and helped her to stick with something. She loved it and was determined to study her lines and be the best she could be.”
“(My daughter) is completely enamored with Shakespeare as a result of this camp, and often is the first to laugh during a Shakespeare play— her understanding of Shakespeare is astonishing to me. I owe it to the truly extraordinary people who run the Superheroes camp. They have made Shakespeare come alive for my daughter.”
“(My son) has had a great time every year and this camp is always on his must go list. He is really looking forward to being old enough to participate in the more serious productions the high school kids get to go to.”
“The bottom line is that he loved it. He so thoroughly enjoyed it that immediately afterwards he asked if he could do it again the following summer. He had a great time during the two weeks of the camp and at the end of it got on stage confidently. It has really helped boost his confidence and improve his presentation skills for projects at school. He is very much looking forward to doing it again this summer.”
