Summer Camp Programs
Spellbind your campers this summer with stories they can step into. Jonathan Kruk offers hundreds of tales to meet your theme. Jonathan's 25 years of experience guarantees to enthrall audiences with rainbow dragons, fairy tale adventures, pirates and why the Hudson River flows both ways.
Young children actively listen to finger fables told 'by hand'. Older kids love the history mysteries. Especially in an era of device overload, we all enjoy a well told tale and Jonathan Kruk is the meister of the art of storytelling. You'll find Jonathan a reliable, affable and affordable performer.
"Child or adult, you become completely captivated as he uses his body, voice/sound effects and hands to make his characters practically appear in front of your eyes."

"Jonathan Kruk has a way with the spoken word, the telling gesture, the sprinkling of humor and the appropriate costume for a smorgasbord of stories."
