It’s puppet-making with a purpose! Campers will combine fabric, paint, upcycled materials and more to make larger-than-life puppets inspired by Little Amal. Little Amal is a 10-foot puppet that’s become an international symbol of compassion and human rights. She carries a message of hope for displaced people, especially children, around the world.
