Weathervane Playhouse is offering a spring break camp at their “top secret headquarters” in Akron. Join special agents at the all-new Spy Academy. Spy skills will be built in three critical areas – Missions Training, Spy Science Lab and Secret Identity Workshop. Prepare to test your intelligence, challenge your dexterity, code, decode and solve some mysteries in this non-stop camp!
Weathervane’s Spy Academy, offered for ages 5 to 12, will take place at the Playhouse, April 6 through 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with optional after-care available through 3 p.m. Secret Agents in Training (SATs) will rotate through three exciting classes:
- Missions Training will teach stage combat with a focus on safety techniques, self-confidence and mutual respect. Agent Dane CT Leasure Davis is an associate member and certified in stage combat through the Society of American Fight Directors and will lead SATs through the right way to make a battle look intense.
- Challenging obstacle courses to decoding skills will be put to the test in the Spy Science Lab. Jennifer Klika (BS and MS Microbiology, MA in Secondary Ed) will help SATs apply the principals of science with experiments and teamwork to overcome bad guys in this session. Learn the secrets of lemon batteries, marshmallow cannons, disappearing ink and more!
- Marissa Leenaarts, Actors Equity Association, who has worked in such tropical arenas as Disney World, will teach Secret Identity Workshop where she will emphasize how to blend in and create an alias or alter ego should the need arise. SATs will explore costumes, accents and imagination to become an undercover spy.
Weathervane Playhouse, located at 1301 Weathervane Lane, in Akron, will double as headquarters for this special week. Students should pack a lunch to keep up their energy.
Weathervane’s Spy Academy costs $160 for the week of fun and learning from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The fun can continue for an additional $100 until 3 p.m. with even more imagination. Camp will combine the arts and principals of STEM into STEAM that will keep your Secret Agents moving all week long.
Registrations are taken by phone at (330) 836-2626 or through the web site.
In addition to the Spy Academy offered for Spring Break, Weathervane is gearing up for its Summer Theater Academy. All offerings are available at the web site.
