YOUNGER CAMPERS (7-10 years)

Morning International Cooking
with LI Teacher Jill Nichols: During the week, students will practice basic kitchen skills while exploring fun, tasty, and creative recipes. Working in teams, campers will learn how to chop, measure, mix, sauté, and more. We will learn to make familiar comfort foods such as blueberry muffins, as well as delving into more exotic foods from other parts of the world. This course is designed for someone who loves to eat and is excited to learn more about working in the kitchen! The experience will culminate with the presentation of a photo journal, as well as sharing some of their favorite dishes from the week.

Afternoon Dance with LI Senior Dance Student Shelby Benton: Male and female participants are welcome, no matter their experience level. We will practice a daily warm up and stretching sequence linked to the style of the day: modern, jazz, hip-hop, or lyrical. Participants will then work with the elements of dance (time, space, and energy) to manipulate the combinations learned that morning. Dancers will also develop choreography for a culminating performance on Friday. Team-building activities and reflection will be incorporated into the day as well.
