Posted 20 Jul 2021
Original Pre-K-2nd grade series features virtual field trips, activities
for summer camp experience at home
CONWAY, Ark. (Arkansas PBS) — An all-new season of “Blueberry’s Clubhouse” will premiere on Arkansas PBS Friday, July 23, at 9:07 a.m. as part of the “Rise and Shine” summer learning program. Produced in partnership with the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts, the original pre-K-2 children's program features Blueberry, a curious puppet guide, and her friends at Camp Onomatopoeia participating in fun, engaging and insightful summer activities across The Natural State. New episodes will air Fridays at 9:07 a.m. through Aug. 13.
“Blueberry’s Clubhouse” will air on AR PBS-1, livestream at myarpbs.org/watchlive and be available on demand at myarpbs.org/blueberry and youtube.com/arkansaspbs, as well as in the Engage Arkansas PBS app and PBS Video app.
Season two of “Blueberry’s Clubhouse” will include adventures in art, science and history, while emphasizing the power of empathy. Blueberry will again be accompanied by her best friend Max and Camp Counselor Carol, and this season will introduce new faces, including Chef Shawn and Blueberry’s parents, Huckleberry and Juneberry.
In the first episode of season two, “Family Day Dilemma,” Blueberry is so excited to meet new friends at Family Day at camp. However, she gets confused when only Max’s mom shows up. With help from her mom, Juneberry; dad, Huckleberry; and all of her camp friends, Blueberry will learn that families come in all shapes and sizes.
To dig deeper together, Blueberry and viewers will:
- Explore how to find a person’s roots and create a Friendship Tree with Rachel Reynolds of the Arkansas Craft School and fabric artist Delisa Eads-Wagar. A Friendship Tree is a piece of art that reminds someone of all the people who have helped and supported them.
- Learn about “Passing it on!” and sharing family stories with Courtney Bradford of the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center. She will explain how history is passed down through storytelling and how families can preserve their own oral histories.
- Sing the new songs “I Really Love to Color and Draw!” and “Take Care” with mömandpöp.
Families can bring the fun of Camp Onomatopoeia home with more summer camp fun with printable activities at myarpbs.org/blueberry.
An encore of “Blueberry’s Clubhouse” season two will air Fridays, Aug. 20-Sept. 10, at 10 a.m. each week.
“Blueberry’s Clubhouse: Season 2” was made possible, in part, by generous donations from June H. Williams of Little Rock and another special supporter to Arkansas PBS.
