Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To achieve a full participant rate at the theater camp of 30 participants ranging in ages 8-12. Each theater camp participant will participate in the production. All participants will learn or improve one movement skill, one theater skill, and one music skill.The outcomes will be evaluated through survey questions to the theater camp participants, observations made by the Parks and Recreation staff, and talking circles with the camp participants.

Measurable Outcome(s)

All of the participants were able to experience music theater, and a dance class during camp. In each of these different sessions, participants were not only given the piece they were to perform, but were taught many different skills. In music class, participants were taught rhythms, pitch, and how to play different instruments. The theater class taught participants how to read a script and how to get into character. Two local dance instructors taught skills movements and cultural dances which students were able to execute.
