Youth Camps

Express yourself and find your passion in the performing arts with theatre games, movement and dance, rehearsals for a performance, and visual arts. Campers develop a movement-based performance.  A visual art project is crafted each day.  Come stretch your muscles while using your imagination.  By the end of the week you’ll be on stage and be a star. Camp information packets including directions, required forms and parent/guardian contact information are available for download for each week of camp.
