Hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was full of fun, with my
daughter attending a Princess Tea Party in Greenbelt. She had a blast.
Speaking of Greenbelt, it's a great little community with lots of free
things going on. The city offers several camps for kids (6-12) that
offer community performances at the end of the camp session. My kids
and I love to attend the Circus Camp performance. At the Circus Camp,
kids learn to ride unicycles, juggle and perform like clowns. The
session-ending performance is always lots of fun. It's amazing what
those kids are able to accomplish in just two weeks (though some of
the kids return to the camp each year, and have been practicing the
moves for a long time).
This year's Circus Camp performance is Friday, July 1 at 1 p.m. in the
Greenbelt Community Center, 15 Crescent Rd # 200, Greenbelt, MD, (301)
397-2208. It's fun and the kids love an audience, so definitely drop
by if you have the time. Be mindful that parents are coming to see
their children, too, so don't necessarily snag the most upfront seat
if you're just their to observe. It's also a great chance to see
what's done if your child might be interested in Circus Camp (which
starts at 8 years old).
The Creative Kids Camp also has an end-of session performance. It
requires tickets that are free. The morning performance is usually
least crowded. If you go the morning of, there are usually tickets
left. The afternoon performance is usually the one parents attend, so
bear that in mind if you come to try to get tickets. The performances
are 10:00 a.m. and 2:15 on Friday, July 1.
That's it for me now. Hope this is the start of a great week for everyone!
