Why are dinosaurs extinct? What did dinosaurs look like? What are the different characteristics of plant and meat eaters? These questions will be answered along with many more as we make a paper mâché dinosaur, create your own dinosaur and make your own fossils. July 31 – August 4. Instructor Becky Fisk

Is That a Gnome I See?

You’ll have to keep your eyes peeled at this camp - gnomes will pop up when you least expect them!

FULL - Poetry in Motion Dance Camp (Offered in Collaboration with NHDI, Grades 2-8)

The New Hampshire Dance Institute is in residency again at Keene State College-Kids on Campus this summer.

Join us as we dance to the poetry of Maya Angelou, Robert Frost, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and perhaps, the dancers’ very own poetic work. June 26 - 30. Instructor: Kristen Leach and NHDI staff
