Service Description

Oral interpretation mirrors slam poetry in they are both types of interpretive and dramatic reading that the individual performs to a group of people. This camp will focus on the performance aspect of poetry and oral interpretation skits to help teens boost confidence in public speaking, improve their communication skills, and help them develop and cultivate personal satisfaction in themselves. Teens will have the option to use other’s work to practice their interpretation or create their own poetry and interp skits (See Teen Poetry and Creative Writing Camp or Retreats) for a live performance at the end of our two-week camp. Those that sign up to compete will use this time to practice their slam poetry or interpretation pieces for either group, duo, or solo performance. Those that do not sign up to compete can choose a piece to perform either solo, in duo with a partner, or in group and will practice performance in front of their peers during camp. Our Summer Camps are offered at a weekly rate for five days and include a morning session from 9 AM to 12 PM, lunch from 12 PM to 1 PM and an afternoon session from 1 PM to 3 PM on Monday-Friday. Lunches will not be provided. Children must bring a sack lunch, limited refrigeration so cooling packs are encouraged. Healing Hearts Haven will not reheat lunches. Morning and afternoon snacks are also encouraged.
