This camp-within-a-camp provides day and resident campers, ages 11-16, with instruction in acting, singing, and movement. Campers can also explore the technical side of the theater by working backstage or in the lighting and sound booth of our modern performing arts center. The goal of the program is to introduce students to a variety of disciplines in the performing arts, and to provide campers with a fun, supportive environment in which to make friends and develop their self-esteem.
Rather than take academic courses, campers in the performing arts program spend their mornings studying voice, acting, dance, stage makeup, or aspects of technical theater. Qualified instructors with backgrounds in dance, theater, costume design and music teach the classes.
Afternoon sessions are set aside for group rehearsal time under the direction of our teachers and camp counselors. Campers not wishing to perform in a production will use these periods to build sets, design costumes, and collect props. At the end of each session, campers will participate in an evening performance, including one full-scale production at the end of the six-week session. Previous productions have included Barnum
