Calling all kids ages 7-12: let's make monsters!


Deadline to register is June 8th!
6-25 through 6-29
Ages 7-12
To Register: Call the Brookline Rec Department at 617-730-2069. We still have room for more campers so apply today!

We love monsters at PST, like our friends Reginald and Bella!  (pictured right) Our vision for creating this programming is to provide a high quality arts education alternative to summer childcare.  

We have a lot of fun planned for this summer!

About the Camp: Can you imagine the world’s craziest monster? Do you like making stuff by hand? Then Puppet Showplace Theatre wants YOU for Monster Makers! In this new one-week summer camp kids will experience the process of puppet design, resulting in the creation of original hand-crafted monster puppets. 

Led by PST’s Artist in Residence, Brad Shur, students will explore the materials and mechanisms used by professional puppet builders to create the creatures that only exist in their imaginations. Students will also take on mini-projects that exercise core artistic skills such as drawing and sculpting. Craftsmanship, attention to detail, and project-planning skills will also be learned along the way. In addition to puppetry activities, campers will enjoy fun recreational outings led by counselors from the Brookline Recreation Department.
