Summer Camps 2017

 Come out to play at Portland Stage this summer!

Our week-long theater camps are fun, challenging, and enriching! Stories of all kinds are used to fuel active, educational, lively, and process-based summer programs for young people, 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.

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

We are offering aftercare until 5:15 for $20 a day. Email education@portlandstage.org to sign up.
