New sessions being added for August! The WizKids Magic Camp at Winmore Studio in Chapel Hill is in its first week and the campers are having a great time! Today our 9-year-old son brought home from Magic Camp twisted-balloon-sculpture poodles, balloon giraffes, balloon hats, and other balloon creations that he learned to make himself at Magic Camp. He and his fellow campers are thinking about showcasing their balloon creature skills for birthday parties, and they look forward to amazing their friends, parents and siblings with their new magic skills!
Magic Camp campers are learning lots of magic tricks including card tricks and sleight of hand tricks, making round balls magically turn into square cubes, turning a handful of little balls into one ball, and many more. As soon as he gets home from camp every day, our son loves to show his sibling his newest tricks!
Update: On the last day of Magic Camp, the campers put on a Magic Show for their families and friends. They came up with their magician stage names and created posters to display in front of the magic trick tables they built during the week at camp. Among the creative magician stage names: “Da Magic Mon,” and “The Future.” (Great stage names, and the kids thought them up on their own!) The magic tricks were great fun – amazing!
A fun time was had by all – and the fun continues! Upon returning home from the Magic Show on the last day of camp, all of our kids played magic tricks with cards, balloons, rope. We went out and bought another deck of cards that evening since we are all having such a great time learning new tricks. Our son loves the magic tricks table he made at camp, and he takes his magic trick practicing very seriously. A summer of magic!
The WizKids Magic Camp workshop is taught by John Paul Middlesworth (the Drama Director at St. Thomas More School for the past 7 years)
