School holiday creativity camp for Illawarra kids

Children with unbridled imaginations have been invited to a creativity camp at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre these school holidays.

Based on the popular children's book 13-Storey Treehouse, a four-day Terrific Treehouse creativity camp will begin on Monday in Wollongong.

Children will participate in workshops to create their own treehouse, based on performance-building exercises.

They will also watch a play based on the book on Tuesday.

Australian Theatre for Young People workshop manager Sarah Parsons said the camp was a success when it ran in Sydney over the summer.

She said her inner seven-year-old was delighted by the creative ideas participants produced.

"The kids had some really interesting ideas, things like slides and secret passageways [in their treehouse]," she said.

"It's completely driven by the children's imagination."

The camp costs $220 and runs for six hours each day at the IPAC.
