Program Spotlight Moonlight Theatre Camp!Boys & Girls Club of Vista partnered with the Moonlight Cultural Foundation this summer to offer a week of theatre camp to our Club members. 16 of our members enjoyed a variety of activities including acting, singing, dancing and drama games all lead by local theatre professionals. All their hard work lead up to a special performance that showcased what they had learned at camp. We are super proud of our members and thankful for such a great partnership in the community.
