What better way to celebrate the magic of childhood than with the boy who simply wouldn’t grow up? J.M. Barrie weaves a web of pure, unadulterated fantasy and we’ll be siphoning off some strings to use in a craft that defies the laws of gravity. We will split the day into sections, interspersing immersive readings from the book by Christianne with the different stages of constructing our own three dimensional shadow boxes. Campers will choose text from the novel to paper the back of their box before carefully cutting out Peter’s famous flying silhouette. Naturally it would be no fun traversing the skies alone, so we’ll task campers with manifesting a miniature Tinkerbell from fabric and a tiny figurine to pair up with Peter. An artistic ode to the unbridled joy of being a child, you won’t want to miss out on such a spectacular offering.

 The Book

It was Friday night. Mr and Mrs Darling were dining out. Nana had been tied up in the backyard. The poor dog was barking, for she could smell danger. And she was right - this was the night that Peter Pan would take the Darling children on the most breath-taking adventure of their lives, to a place called Neverland, a strange country where the lost boys live and never grow up, a land with mermaids, fairies and pirates - and of course the terrible, evil, Captain Hook. Peter Pan is undoubtedly one of the most famous and best-loved stories for children, an unforgettable, magical fantasy which has been enjoyed by generations.
