"Green" Puppets


This day camp is perfect for kids who love to learn, create, perform, and make the world a better place. Participants help shape the funny and informative “Red Light, Green Light” script about choosing healthy “green light” actions and behaviors that support people and planetary health. After adapting the script to reflect the group’s sense of humor, we’ll create the sock puppets to star in the show. Then it will be time to practice the show in a professional portable puppet theater. On the last day, we’ll perform the puppet show for a younger audience and celebrate our success.

We are partnering with
