Arkansas PBS hit children’s series ‘Blueberry’s Clubhouse’ produced
in partnership with Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts to premiere third season
CONWAY, Ark. (Arkansas PBS) — “Blueberry’s Clubhouse” – the original pre-K-2 children's program featuring Blueberry, a curious puppet guide, and her friends at Camp Onomatopoeia participating in fun, engaging and insightful summer activities across The Natural State – returns to Arkansas PBS with an all-new third season Friday, July 8, at 9:30 a.m. The series, produced in partnership with the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts, will air each Friday morning at 9:30 through Aug. 12.
Blueberry is back at camp for another summer of fun! This year, kids will learn about art, science, history and the emotional ups and downs of growing up. As always, Blueberry will be assisted by her best friend Max, Camp Counselor Carol, little brother Miles and Chef Shawn. This season will also introduce new camper Sophie and the musical talents of The Jams.
This season’s theme is “Growing Up.” Both Blueberry and Max, along with Sophie, learn to grow into their new roles in the clubhouse. Max knows this is her last summer as a camper, and both she and Blueberry have to come to terms with getting older, which can sometimes be hard.
This year’s season finale will feature a special dance celebration. Kids across the state are encouraged to submit dance videos to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured. Videos should be 30 seconds or less and must be submitted by Friday, May 6, for a chance to be included in the celebration.
