Summer Camp 2019!!

Beginning FEBRUARY 14, 2019 at 12 p (noon!), you can register for camp here on our website! 

*For ALL TWO-WEEK SESSIONS: Signing up for both weeks is required, in order for your child to get the full experience and participate in the camp. This includes ROCK & ROLL NATION, PRESENTATION, AND DETERMINATION! Thank you for your understanding.

OPERATION: salivation! (MAY 28-31) Prorated 4-day session! *Cost: $260

Did anyone ever tell you not to play with your food? Well, this week that’s exactly what we WILL do! Campers will dive into the world of cuisine, getting hands on with sweet and savory snacks. Each day the chefs will get to make and try a different dish. There may even be leftovers to take home... (*as of 3/20, there are open spots for Gallons; the Pints group has a waiting list)

OPERATION: improvisation & experimentation! (June 3-7)

Have a curious mind or a knack for comedy? This week we will exercise our funny bones on stage while conducting science experiments offstage, all in the spirit of trying something new. On Friday, campers will show off their skills to family and friends with an improv performance. (*as of 3/20, there are open spots for both groups)

OPERATION: Recreation! (June 10-14)

Hey, what are you gonna do with all of that excess energy? We have a place for it at smsc! This week we will play all kind of games from all over the world, and we’ll make up new ones, too! All campers will have the opportunity to create and construct games to take home throughout the week. On Friday (back by popular demand,) the Gallons will put together a CARDBOARD ARCADE in the gallery, which the Pints will visit for an afternoon of fun. (*as of 3/20, there are open spots for both groups)

operation: Rock & Roll Nation! (June 17-28) two week session!   

One of our most popular sessions, Rock & Roll Nation will have the campers form rock bands, and come up with names, logos, and T-shirt designs. Gallons will write and record original songs while Pints revamp known classics. Both groups will learn the art of recording from producer/engineer/our friend Dave, who will make sure each track ROCKS! Each child will be mailed a CD with all the songs we record during this incredible session.
***Please note, the Highball listening party will take place at the END OF SUMMER, on AUGUST 16th from 4-7 pm. (*as of 3/20, both groups have a waiting list)

July 1-5 

spilled milk social club will be closed this week!

OPERATION: beautification! (July 8-12)     

For this session of camp, we will welcome back to spilled milk one of our old staff members (and a former camper), artist Patrick Wolf. Patrick will be joining us for a few weeks from New Orleans to teach us all about making puppets and working with papier mache and other media! There will be no shortage of messy fun for all this week! (*as of 3/20, there are open spots for Gallons; the Pints group has a waiting list)

OPERATION: Presentation! (July 15-26) two week session!

Are you a performer and/or creative storyteller? We need you! This session we will create and rehearse original plays based on our own stories and ideas, and inspired by the radical puppetry of the Bread and Puppet Theater from Vermont (look them up!!) A special guest artist (see above) will join us for project time, helping us to make larger-than-life puppets and other fun props to use as part of our show. The two-week camp will culminate in a performance on Friday, July 26th so save the date! (*as of 3/20, there are open spots for both groups)

OPERATION: determination! (July 29-Aug 9) two week session!

No summer is complete without the annual smsc Summer Olympics. Gallons and Spills will form teams to represent different countries and compete in all types of events (physical, mental, creative, and just plain silly!) Pints will represent the host country and will be so kind as welcome the competitors at the opening ceremony. As the Pints learn about their country, they will invite the Gallons and Spills to also explore the culture and cuisine thereof. (*as of 3/20, both groups have a waiting list)

OPERATION: relaxation! (Aug 12-15) **prorated 4-day session! *Cost: $260

Each day will we offer fun projects, games, activities, field trips and more! Our ultimate goal during this short week of camp will be to play hard, chill hard, and enjoy every last moment of summer break! (**as of 3/20, there are open spots for Gallons; the Pints group has a waiting list)

Friday, August 16th, 4- 7p... End-of-summer PARTY AT THE HIGHBALL!

There’s no camp on this day, but let’s celebrate the end of another amazing summer together! All spilled milk families and friends are invited to join us at The Highball (1120 S Lamar), which we’ve rented out from 4 to 7p.
