Each, 1 week, session will run from 9-1pm at the Coos History Museum.

Tuition per week: $110 Non-Members / $90 Members | Space is limited/15 child limit per session.

Paper Puppet Theater Camp is a great way to learn about the many characters of Coos County. We will explore the basics of everything you need to start your own paper theater! We will use copies of images from real photos in the museum’s collection to create the set, characters, and storyline for a puppet show performance at the end of each session. This will be a wonderful week of cutting, gluing, writing, and acting, to present a never before seen Coos County tale! If your child enjoys constructing dioramas, making up stories, or acting, this is a great way to collaborate with others and be creative this summer! Each participant will leave with a small personal theater and character pack at the end of each session.
