2019 summer camps for kids!

Three separate camps for 3-5 years old, 5-9 years old, and 10-14 years old.

Acting Inside Out and All About: Creative Play for Everyday for 3-5 year olds

Wednesdays, May 22-June 12, 10-11:30am


$70 for 4-week session

2 siblings @ $130 for both.

$20 for drop-in

Encouraged to let their imaginations lead in play, children use drama, movement, rhythm, and visual art to discover a new expression and fun with other campers.   Use of kinetic learning, costumes, song, and mask or puppet making, participants will create their own memorable stories and artwork, while building skills of expression, collaboration, and creativity.


Arts in Action: Creating Performance and Visual Art (5-9 year olds)

Monday-Friday, June 17-21, 10am-4pm

$250 for 5 days, 10am-4pm.

Early Drop Off /Late Pick Up for additional fee.


Designed to teach the basics of acting, stage-craft, and theater etiquette, this fun filled active camp will result in an entertaining end-of-the-week performance(s) written, built, and performed by the Arts-In-Action participants and presented to an invited audience of family and friends. Each day will build on the last, providing each camper the opportunity to build confidence, create art, and learn dramatic techniques to share their stories in dynamic and collaborative ways.


Youth Ensemble Academy: Performance Story Lab (10-14 year olds)

Monday-Friday, June 24-28, 2019, 10am-4pm

$250 for 5 days

Early Drop Off /Late Pick Up for additional fee.

The object of this camp is to have fun creating, collaborating, and telling stories in new and dynamic ways. With the help of art, history, and the alchemy of the group’s imagination, techniques, tricks, and theater magic will be incorporated to build a dramatic story written and told by the ensemble at the end of the week. The camp is intended to provide: 1) an essential understanding of acting and stage craft; 2) solid theatrical storytelling skills; and 3) a confidence-building experience. Whether you are new to theater or looking to build on what you already know, this safe and respectful environment will allow you to create from where you are and learn artful methods for working with script and collaborators for performance.

  2. Hi,
    I’m interested in having my daughter, Livi, do this camp but have a few questions. Do they have any outside time during the day? What is your policy on use of cell phones/devices throughout the camp day? How many campers do you take for the age 10-14 camp week?
