Puppet Palooza Summer Camp June 2011, in Riverside, CA
Puppet Palooza was great! Wonderful creative children and parents. Thank you, Lori Beilby for co-teaching with me! Lori brought her expertise in fabrics to the camp and the puppets show it. Jasper Bernbaum has created an amazing video of the camp, please take a look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AffjnJJKYuE
Below are a few pictures of the campers. I took these. We had two professionals taking pictures. Thank you, Jasper Bernbaum, and Peter Phun. It’s a shame, but we ran out of time, and Peter wasn’t able to take pictures of all the kids. To see his pictures, please visit http://peterphun.zenfolio.com/puppet-palooza.
Kate Anger guided the children in writing and performing the skits. The plays were imaginative and great fun. Thanks!
Great big thank yous to Michael Bernbaum for building the puppet stage, Hanna Bernbaum, Ellen Racobs, Lauren Adams, Kira Roybol, and Kris Law for helping the students and giving them support and enthusiasm. And to Jane Racobs for sharing her love of games and physical education with the campers! Thanks to Marion Mitchell-Wilson and Inlandia Institute for being an affilate. You all made it memorable.
