Tomato Patch Programs Both Virtual and On-Site

COVID-SAFE CREATIVITY: Enrollment is underway for the summer Tomato Patch Visual and Performance Arts Virtual Workshops. In addition to virtual, Mercer Activity Camps will take place on site, in person at the Mercer County Community College West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road, with COVID-19 safety precautions in place.

Children can participate in theater, dance, vocal music, visual arts, sports, wilderness-training, and other fun and educational activities with small groups of kids who share their interests at the 2020 Tomato Patch Visual and Performing Arts Virtual Workshops and Mercer Activity Camp, taking place this summer at Mercer County Community College in West Windsor.

Created for kids in grades 4-12, the program offers virtual or traditional on-campus (in person) one-week or three-week sessions. All on-site camp activities will include COVID-19 CDC safety-first precautions.

“We received the green light to get our live Mercer Activity On-Campus Camp going, so we are rolling out some amazing in-person workshops for kids age 7 to 17 with extensive COVID-19 precautions in place,” said Kitty Getlik, artistic director for the Kelsey Theatre. “The sessions will allow kids to be kids again and be together in a fun, structured, and safe learning environment.”

Tomato Patch Virtual Workshops began July 6 and Mercer Activity On-Campus Camp begins July 27 with full or half-day activities running Monday through Thursday, with two special Friday programs in theatre. The popular Master Class in Acting will take place live on campus starting July 27.

Tomato Patch’s Virtual Workshops are offered in two three-week sessions with Session I for grades 8-12 and Session II for grades 4-7. The workshops include personalized learning that attracts many returning students year after year.
