Camp in a Box: Fairytales and Fables

Bring the magic of theatre to your home today with Camp in a Box: Fairytales and Fables
Business Name: Camp in a Box: Fairytales and Fables
Business Genre:
Short Business Description: In response to the current challenges around COVID-19, Elaine Ellis-Hileman and Sheahan Keinick co-created a fun and safe alternative to in-person summer camps, Camp in a Box: Fairytales and Fables, contains all of the supplies and video links needed for a minimum of five full days of theatre camp, delivered directly to each student’s door!
Long Business Description:

The arts and artists are one of the many industries that have been negatively impacted by the restrictions around COVID-19, even though people need the arts like never before. Camp in a Box was developed by local artists who know that the arts are essential for this generation, and who decided to use this “downtime” to create something that will help foster creativity and storytelling in today’s youth.

Each box contains a collection of classic fairytales and fables, supplies to assemble a simple puppet theatre, templates and supplies to build character and prop puppets, links to instructional videos highlighting the elements of storytelling through the expertise of local professional artists and university professors, and a small prize bag to encourage completion of daily activities.

Fairytales & Fables was designed with 6-12 year-olds in mind, but we think puppet theatre and good storytelling is for everyone. Grandparents will love working with grandchildren to tell these classic tales, older siblings will captivate younger ones with the magic of shadow puppets, and parents will love that children are having fun while building literacy, memory, and imagination.

A regular in-person summer camp in Calgary can cost between $350-$800, depending on the camp and activity. Camp in a Box: Fairytales and Fables only costs $110.00 and includes free local delivery! The boxes can also be shipped anywhere in the world for an additional postage fee, so why not gift it to working parents, bring it to the cabin, or spend time creating with relatives you know who desire to keep their children engaged this summer?
