Field Trip Day

For the AileyCampers' weekly field trip, they went to Albany Bowl for a few round of bowling. But before they headed off to their buses, the staff needed to do some inventory check of the costumes they had for the final performance on July 31. Turning a tedious task of going through clothings into a fun activity, the AileyCamp fashion show returned and allowed the campers' personalities and confidence shine on stage.

But before the campers put on their clothing, the staffers decided to have some fun themselves and showed how to work the walk on Zellerbach stage.

Once the staffers were done with their demonstration, it was time for the campers to go and piece together their own unique costumes for the runway.

At Albany Bowl, a few representatives from Wells Fargo (Cal Performances' season sponsor and a sponsor of AileyCamp) were there to join the fun!

AileyCamp Open House

AileyCamp had its Open House for the family and friends of campers. Groups of adults and children alike were escorted to different dance class lessons and curriculums that the campers went through daily. This gave the parents/friends of AileyCampers a chance to see and experience the camp.
