 Learn to make pickles
Master Food Preservers from OSU Extension Service, led by Carol Nelson, will teach a public workshop to demonstrate pickling methods.

Youth theatre summer camp
 Innovation Theatre Works has announced The Young Artists Theatre Conservatory  is initiating its first Summer Theatre Camp Intensive in August.
ITW’s Artistic Director Brad Hills said in a news release, “We have received resounding enthusiasm for our year-long YATC and Children’s Theatre Workshop  programs along with an obvious thirst for more. We noted there is not currently a summer theatre camp in our region and thought we were at the point where we could offer a fun and comprehensive experience to all age groups.”
The summer camp will be held at Innovation Theatre Works and will be structured as a two-week, four-day-per-week full theatrical immersion camp with the goal of mounting a production in each age group at the end of the camp. The cost of the camp will be $199 per student with a maximum of 12 students per age bracket.
The camp will be held at ITW from Aug. 6-16, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students will be responsible for their own transportation to and from camp.
Each age bracket will rotate through a morning session of fun and interactive classes in voice, movement, acting and other theatrical essentials. After lunch break, each age bracket will concentrate on the production of the play they will be working on. Final plays will be presented to the public on Saturday morning, Aug. 18. In addition, members of the local theatrical and film community will be invited to attend to view the progress of our young thespians. 
ITW is located at 1155 S.W. Division St. in Bend. For more information and to register call 541-504-6721 or email brad@innovationtw.org.
