Summer Camp 2018

Our theater camps are fun, challenging, and enriching! Stories of all kinds are used to fuel active, educational, lively, and process-based summer programs for grades K–12. Spend the summer working with professional actors, directors, and artisans. Every participant is invited to think, speak, and act imaginatively, critically, and creatively in an environment of inclusivity and safe play. Please register based on the grade your camper will be enrolled in for the 2018-2019 school year.

Sign up for multiple weeks of camp and receive a 10% discount!

We offer aftercare until 5:15 for $20 a day. (Except for Magic Trunk, High School Conservatory, & July 4th)
