Another year at Hogwarts
I am excited to announce that plans are rolling for a 2nd year at Hogwarts. August 12-16 will see Hewett Centre once again transformed into the Great Hall and Hogwarts classrooms.
Visit our Summer Camp page to register now to hold your spot in the 2019 Hogwarts West experience. Harry and UU summer camp is theatre in action for kids ages 7-12. There are volunteer leadership opportunities for youth ages 13+ with a Red Cross first aid certificate.
What we do
This year our social justice focus will centre around water inspired by the national Canadian Unitarian Ripple Effect project. We will identify two local water issues for the children to explore and learn about Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed techniques. The DA Creators will create a theatre as social action piece to fight our Horcrux. It becomes a week of living theatre, social justice, and a unique summer camp experience for Vancouver children and youth.
Families and friends can expect a final performance and picnic at the end of the week.
This experiential camp is for anyone who loves the adventures of Harry Potter and wishes to explore theatre as social action!
Children can expect to make their own wand, create their patronus, taste butterbeer and other magical snacks, participate in lessons of Magic and Sorcery, discover their house and much, much, more!
