How to Run a Magic Drama Camp This School Holiday
A Perfect Holiday Activity For Kids Entertainers
Surely a magic drama camp would require a children’s entertainer to be highly skilled in magic technique. Not so. September Cardiff shares her insights and tips from her magic and drama camp in the recent summer holiday break.

– What ages work best for a magic drama camp?
– Is there a need to run holiday entertainment for children outside of school hours?
– How hard or how easy is it to get parents to send the children to a magic drama camp?
– What the parents expect?
– What type of schedule works best? How long? Start time? End time?
– Do you have to be experienced in magic to be able to teach magic tricks to kids?
– Including puppets, juggling, theatre, circus – what works best?
– Building social skills like confidence, public speaking, eye contact and learning patience.
