Story Camp


Youth get to craft a story of their choosing – from folktales to original to personal stories.


Youth get to “play” with the story and look at stories in another perspective. Re-thinking is what a storyteller does all the time.


Youth get to practice and perform and work through the stumbles and stutters. Stage presence and delivery top off the experience.

Youth aged 8-17 can participate in one of two kinds of Story Camps. Story Camps will take place on Wednesday-Friday, August 12-14, 2020.

The Limited-Sized/Proper-Distanced is free upon pre-registration. We limit to 20 youth with 10 spots reserved for Salt Lake City, Utah residents. The costs associated with this are covered thanks to the generous funding of the Salt Lake City Arts Council as well as the Zoo, Arts & the Parks of Salt Lake County. See 1-minute video on our Live Story Camp and please share.

The Virtual has pre-registration as well as tuition of $55.00/youth. This tuition is due to the convenience factor of doing this from home AND the fact that 100% of the tuition is given to Cherie Davis and Ginger Parkinson, our facilitators. See 1-minute video on our Virtual Story Camp and please share.

Since 2008, Cherie Davis and Ginger Parkinson have been Master Story Facilitators for youth, specifically Story Camps. They already had a full-to-capacity of 40 youth with a Virtual Story Camp in June 2020. With live or virtual, these professionals are exciting for all.

Youth have stories.

Give them the chance to tell.
