Summer Camps

We organize our Summer Camps by grades (entering in the fall). To see which programs are available to you, please select from the list below!

Kindergarten - 4th Grades

Imagination Camp

Imagination Camp is a summer performing arts camp that is specifically designed for campers in Kindergarten through 4th grade. Camp sessions are one week long! This camp lays the foundations for effective collaboration as kids play hard with purpose while being introduced to and developing the skills of the creative theatre arts.

5th - 8th Grades

Summer Theatre Camp

Campers in 5th through 8th are taught acting, dance/movement, visual arts, storytelling/playwriting, all of which culminate in a final performance created, produced, and performed by the campers. During their time at camp, campers become members of small tribes. Through play and work in daily classes, campers create with their tribe imagined identities, roles, shared history, myths, and story. All campers are taught by professional artist teachers, and are accompanied from class to class by Travelers (counselors) and Junior Staff (Shadow Company members).

New for 2017: Theatre Camp Intensives and Workshops. One week Intensives allow us to focus and train on one aspect of theatre-making. This year our intensives are: a visual arts instalation project and technical theatre training. Two week workshops allow us to delve deep into a theme that we explore and then share with the world.
