August 6th through 11th, children aged 8 – 11 will learn about empathy and fairness, for
themselves and others, while creating puppets to tell their stories. “We’re OK – Puppet
Play!”, a summer day camp, is offered by the Aiken Unitarian Universalist Church. The
camp runs from 9:00 to 1:00, Monday through Friday, with a family performance on
Saturday. Campers will learn to design and build their own puppet, collaborate in writing
skits, creating puppet voices and performing, playing games and singing.
The fee is $70 per child, including drinks and two daily snacks. Class size is limited and
scholarships are available. For questions and registration, call (803) 701-9466.
The camp is led by Debbie Brown, artist and retired Visual Art Teacher at the award-winning
Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School in Augusta. Debbie founded and taught
Davidson’s unique Puppetry program.
The Aiken Unitarian Universalist Church is located at 115 Gregg Avenue, off Richland
Avenue, in Aiken. We are a welcoming interfaith community of people from all faiths,
races, cultural origins, sexual orientations and gender identities.
