Walter Breeman (NCS 10) was transformed by the creative process he experienced as he helped to stage and produce theater productions at North Country School. The Walter Breeman Performing Arts Center (WallyPAC) honors his memory while celebrating the many children who had inspirational experiences fostered by the music and drama programs at Camp and School. A truly collaborative space, WallyPAC is utilized by North Country School students, Camp Treetops campers, and visitors of Rock-E House & Basecamp.
WallyPAC is a state-of-the-art building with a Net Zero design. The building features a performance space that has exceptional acoustics and supporting technological features, as well as a dedicated set construction and design space. It also contains a music instruction classroom with digital music composition equipment, as well as four music practice rooms. The lobby is a rounded, soaring space that leads to an art gallery for display of children’s artwork. True to the spirit of North Country School, the central staircase of the building is flanked by a slide.
