A Day at Camp TV

Head Camp TV counselor, Zachary Noah Piser.

Providing ideas for fun activities to kids who can’t go to camp this summer, Camp TV is hosted by a head counselor played byZachary Noah Piser, a Broadway performer (“Dear Evan Hansen,” “Wicked”) who guides campers as they learn through play.

Head counselor Zach kicks off each episode with a welcome song and announces the day’s theme: silly hat day, camping day, rhyme day, silly sock day, backwards day and more.

Zach will then guide campers through a variety of learning experiences — exploring nature, math, science, the arts, movement, storytelling, writing and more. For example, kids will learn about surface tension while making bouncing bubbles and discover shapes while creating a flying origami star.

Other hands-on creative activities will include learning how to do magic tricks, turn sneakers into tap shoes, create an oboe from a straw and make guacamole.

Kids will be introduced to animals, from a playful bearcat to chickens who like classical music. Every episode also includes a storytelling segment that features a different book of the day.
