Performing Arts Camp
About the Camp
The Performing Arts Camp for Kids is a five night interactive learning experience children in grades 1-8 aimed to teach kids how to use creative arts to share the deep truths of life with their community and world.
Throughout the week, from 6:00-8:30pm Monday through Friday, campers will rotate classes to learn performing arts skills such as visual art, music, acting, and movement by preparing and rehearsing an original production to be debuted on Friday evening at the end of the camp. The Friday night performance will be a free event open to the public.
Our experienced event staff have over 100 years combined professional teaching and performing arts experience in local theatre, directing summer camps, international opera, and visual arts instruction.
