Every year, our Summer camps, workshops, and performance opportunities for kids delight, enchant, and challenge young people ages 3-18 with a wide range of offerings.

Our youngest students can participate in fun Art and Imagination-based camps that teach the fundamentals of creative expression, teamwork, and even the creation or performance of a short play! The Summer Academy is a perennial favorite for 8-13 year olds, with kids working on a hilarious one-hour play that they perform at the end of each 3-week session. Middle and high school ages can enroll in challenging Skill-Building Workshops that focus on anything from Shakespeare to Acting to Dramatic Writing, and more.

Several sessions available.
