SUMMER CAMPS   LACROSSE CAMP One of the fastest growing games in America is also a perfect summer’s pastime for boys and girls of almost any age.

This summer they offer a variety of programs sure to bring out the best in your budding performer. Designed for kids 4 and up these weekly pro- grams include introductions to acting, singing, im- provisation, dance, puppetry, and more! Advanced students will build their skills with in-depth sessions with Bay Street’s professional staff on acting, direct- ing, writing, scene study, Shakespeare, even audi- tions for the stage. For many the week ends with an actual performance on the Main Stage. If that doesn’t send chills up and down your theatrical spine, nothing will! Classes are limited so be sure to call ASAP to secure your spot. In East Hampton GUILD HALL 631-324-4050 also offers summer sessions for ages 8 and up that engage and widen their performing horizons and skills.

CARTOON CAMP You may not recognize the name, but if you love “The Addams Family” you know the talented work of Mr. Charles Addams. He may be gone but his technique of drawing continues in a series of weekly workshops sponsored by the BRIDGEHAMPTON MUSEUM 631-537-1088. Held weekly from July 9-13 kids 7 and up learn the basics of using pencil and pad to begin, polish and finish an idea. Taught by beloved local cartoonist Peter “Wetiquite” Spacek this is not just a great learning experience, but great fun, too!   THE BOTTOM LINE Know that whichever camp you choose your chil- dren will have a great time in one of the country’s best summer vacation areas. Kind of makes you wish you were 10 all over again, doesn’t it? ■ A CHILD’S SMILE O ccasional dental pain can turn a smile into a frown.
