Campers Rock the Revolution at the Westport Historical Society. You probably never thought of the leaders of America’s break from England as rock stars, but youth motivational speaker Christina Frei does with a dynamic drama program. Starting Aug. 19, Frei will run a five-day camp for kids ages 11 to 14 at the Westport Historical Society based on her book “5 Rockstars of the American Revolution.”
And her Fab Five are indeed an all-star lineup – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Ben Franklin and Paul Revere. Each camp day will focus on a different star, the idea being to help the kids untap their inner resources and engage in creative fun while learning a valuable lesson from one of these great Americans.
Frei, an animated speaker who has a degree in American Studies from Wellesley and teaches and directs improv, says that in addition to learning the “juicy secrets and backstories” of the Founding Fathers, the kids will act out improvised stories based on their lives.
Contact us for more information about Frei’s “revolutionary” camp, which promises to make America’s early leaders both relevant and interesting to today’s kids.
