Discover Magic©️ - Summer Magic Camp

The Discover Magic©️ program is an internationally recognized curriculum for budding magicians ready to take up the wand.  This early summer workshop offers a unique perspective into the science and skill of executing magic tricks, while building the character and confidence required to interact with an audience. Whether it is to entertain family or friends this program opens up a new world for its students.  Novice magicians will earn a new wand for each of the four magic levels completed. 

This year, camp will be happening on the following 8 days: July 20 – 23 and July 27 – 30, with a final student & teacher performance at 2:00PM on Thursday, July 30th. Classes will run from 10:00AM through 1:45PM with drop-off opening at 9:45AM.

The HMT will be participating in the Bay City Public Schools’ “Meet Up & Eat Up” summer feeding program, therefore a snack and sack lunch will be provided to your students every day of camp. They may also bring their own lunch/snacks, as we have a refrigerator in our building.

Car drop-off & pick-up is located on the 6th Street side of the building, and both the front and side entrances will be open for the students. You must be ages 8 – 14 to participate.
