Campers will spend the day singing, dancing, creating and having a blast. The week will conclude with a rousing performance of Broadway Junior’s highly acclaimed "Jungle Book KIDS." Adapted from Disney's beloved animated film and the works of Rudyard Kipling, the “man cub” Mowgli, bounds through the jungle and learns what it means to be human.
Musical Theater Camp will be directed by Darlington faculty members and staffed by fine arts students.
Each camper should provide their own lunch, water bottle and snacks.
