Program Highlights

Performance Opportunities

At the end of the session, there will be a two-performance run of the show. This is your chance to take the stage and show your friends and family what you've learned this summer.

Recreational Activities

This might be an arts camp, but it's still camp! In addition to theatre rehearsals, you'll have the chance to explore the woods and swim, play field games, and learn cool skills like archery.

What's Camp really like?

Take a look at the rehearsals, performances, and other fun activities that fill the days of our young actors!

I've learned that it's just not your play. When you work together, you create a puzzle. And the puzzle is the play.
