Musical Theater songs and scenes featuring Inside Out: Ages 4-7 (1-4pm)

Mister Rogers spoke often of his conviction “that when we help our children find healthy ways of dealing with their feelings–ways that don’t hurt them or anyone else–we’re helping to make our world a safer, better place.” Now more than ever we need to be in touch with our feelings and feel safe to express them. Here comes a camp that uses a context kids are familiar with and characters that bring these emotions to life. In this camp we will create new stories and journeys for familiar characters including Joy, Anger, Sadness, Fear, and Disgust and perhaps come up with some of our own! Offered at our Andersonville and location.
