Camp Programs

Music / Drama:  

Music: Welcome to Safari Land Music.

Music builds self-esteem and allows children to express themselves imaginatively. Skills such as cooperation, group participation and listening are naturally developed through music. The music program revolves around our camp theme Safari-land and all our jungle animals. Each group has their own special song and every week new songs and activities are introduced based on our theme of the week. Every Friday all the jungle animals gather to have a camp wide concert, which is theme related. Children have the opportunity to develop self-esteem while participating in group songs and actions. All of the music programs are geared to each individual age group with the objective of learning music skills through fun, interactive, game oriented songs.


There is no greater power than a child's imagination!  At Hillcrest Camp, we use drama to provide a voice to children and develop their confidence in order to let their individual abilities shine.  Children will learn basic drama skills and techniques, ranging from story theatre to moving to different types of emotions to miming and tableaux.   To celebrate the children's new learned skills, a final play will be created as the camp session concludes.  This is a stepping stone to becoming first class actors!
