VIRTUAL KIDS CAMP
Aug 10 @ 6:30 pm

NACKARD PEPSI AND THE ORPHEUM THEATER BRING VIRTUAL KIDS CAMP TO FAMILIE’S HOMES

 

For the last four years, Nackard Pepsi has worked with the historic Orpheum Theater in downtown Flagstaff to offer a free summer movie series to kids and their parents. This year, with theaters closed and safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds, Nackard Pepsi’s usual programming looks very different.

“Nackard Pepsi has been a valued partner of The Orpheum for many years and continues to support us,” said Orpheum General Manager Susan Walter. “We knew it was necessary to put safety first and not bring families into the venue this summer, but we wanted to find a way to pivot our programming to still bring quality content to children and their families, especially when they are missing that connection to their community.”

The camp, which begins next Monday July 6 will stream every Monday at 6:30pm from The Orpheum Theater’s YouTube channel and features seven local organizations including Little Music Makers of Flagstaff, Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA), Momentum Aerial, Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival, Lowell Observatory, Willow Bend Environmental Education Center, and The Arboretum of Flagstaff. With content for all ages, the camp will take viewers on virtual tours of The Force is With Our People exhibit at MNA, the mushroom garden of The Arboretum, and the night sky through a telescope at Lowell Observatory. Kids will learn how to sing traditional African songs, write a haiku, juggle, and even build their own at-home worm composting bin.

“I have been working and meeting with many local organizations and nonprofits in town, and the overwhelming message was that they were all looking for a way to connect with the community,” said Walter. “This just seemed like a perfect opportunity to highlight what Flagstaff has to offer and give families something to do together while they’re stuck at home.”

Join Lowell Observatory at 9pm AZ/PT on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, for a live stream of the Perseid meteor shower, hosted by astronomer Dr. Nick Moskovitz and research assistant Megan Gialluca.

Every year in early August, the Earth passes through the debris left by Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, which creates the Perseid meteor shower. Join Lowell Observatory at 9pm AZ/PT on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, for a live stream of the Perseid meteor shower, hosted by astronomer Dr. Nick Moskovitz and research assistant Megan Gialluca.

After that, you’ll be ready to find more on your own, when the meteor showers peak in the hours before dawn.

Prescott
8/13/2020: 12 p.m. – 5 p.m., Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, 1202 Green Lane, Prescott
Though this summer may feel different than summers past, one thing remains constant: The need for blood donations to help save lives. The American Red Cross is urging healthy individuals to give blood to restock the shelves for patients battling disease and facing the unexpected.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the country have stepped up to help by giving blood with the Red Cross. Blood donations from healthy individuals are just as essential now to meet patient needs, and those who gave this spring may be eligible to help again.
Donation appointments can be made for the coming days and weeks by downloading the free Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
As a thank-you for helping ensure a stable blood supply, those who come to give Aug. 1-Sept. 3 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email, courtesy of Amazon.* Plus, come to give by Aug. 31 and automatically be entered for a chance to win a trip for four to Cedar Point or Knott’s Berry Farm, redeemable through the 2021 season!^
