Paramount Theatre offers virtual camps this summer
This summer, many summer camps have been shifting how they operate to keep social distancing in mind and practice safety during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Paramount Theatre typically offers its musical theater Camp Paramount and play-creation Camp Story Wranglers, and this year is no different, but the camps are now on virtual platforms.
Each two-week session will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and campers will need a Zoom-compatible device to use as well as a reliable internet connection and headphones.
Some of the camps will be on-screen, some will be at-home activities.
Camp Paramount is offering two sessions, which will be different: June 15-26 and July 20-31. Each session is $550. It’s for grades first through 10th.
Camp Story Wranglers is July 6-17 and will involve story-writing, songwriting, costume and prop design and acting. It’s for third through 10th grades. $550.
