Each two-week camp ends with a full-length play. All campers have lines, costumes, get to help with set painting, play games, and learn about acting and singing!
Not only do we prepare for the show but we have fun playing water games, doing crazy hair day, learning about acting, and painting sets!

Rene Culler’s site-specific work is a mural in glass that celebrates the species-rich Delta and its atmospheric qualities. The Delta is a changeling environment which is constantly shaped and molded by the weather and waterways. As the grasses, almost transparent, catch the light, Culler’s drawings and painting in glass suggest the landscape that southern Alabama holds so dear. The composition is a wall of natural light utilized as a glass canvas for drawing, painting and printing with vitreous enamels. Slumped dimensional panels and blown glass abstractly portray the location’s dimensionality.
