Campers say goodbye to summer 2015 with “All Things Disney” performance

Finding the best way to end summer can be a tough job for many reasons. First, kids feel sad since they had so much fun and learned new things at camp. They met and made tons of new friends. Then, there’s the issue of going back to school and colder temperatures. But it only takes one week for kids to get back on track at school. But I’m getting ahead of myself!

Here is a little sneak peek into the end of summer show at Goodwill’s New Mountain Academy Family Learning Center.

Last week, seventy-five kids ages 5-13 who attended summer camp at the New Mountain Family Learning Center in Goodwill’s Astoria headquarters had an end of summer show.  It included mystery, as well as their favorite Disney movies and tales. The show began with a few mysteries in which the older campers had the opportunity to write scripts, direct movies, and even act. Goodwill Campers definitely know how to prepare for an exciting career in production and acting!

That’s not all. There was also a mystery portion of the show that featured singing and dancing with some of the great Disney classics: The Lion King and The Little Mermaid. Campers also had a chance to sing “Let it go” from the movie Frozen.

I don’t think there’s a better way to end the summer and this could have not happened without our campers. Thank you all for spending your summer with us!
