The Middle School Summer Program ended with a bang! Students produced 9 short films, dissected and constructed their own flowers in Earth Science club, wrote and performed monologues and scenes in front of an audience, made ice cream, salsa, and cookies ‘n’ cream brownies in Cooking club, went on a Central Park scavenger hunt and art museum tour, made a trip to the Bronx Zoo for Zoology club, visited the Native American Museum and participated in an interactive show, built a robot out of Legos that entertains cats, and much, much more. There were so many trips, performances, and events that we can only fit a fraction of it into this post. It was a very fun summer with the kids.
The performing arts classes put on a show of original monologues, scenes, and comedy sketches. One camper even made his stand up comedy debut!
The filmmaking camp had a culminating showing of all of their films. Friends and families packed the Center’s Great Hall to watch the films. Over an hour’s worth of short films made by students in 4 weeks? Even we’re surprised and impressed.
