Summer Drama Camps

Theatre helps young people to develop their imagination, teamwork skills, focus, confidence and self-expression. Drama Day Camps are active and participatory; activities encourage independent thinking, creativity and collaboration.

Our full-day camps for ages 7 – 12 introduce young people to theatre through games, storytelling, improvisation, and character creation. Participants will learn to use acting techniques to explore creativity and individual expression. Young actors will develop performance tools while sharing their ideas in a collaborative space. Weather permitting, students will spend some class time outside.
