Have fun exploring different activities that all involve making theater! Campers will sing and dance their way through the week while also participating in theater-based arts and crafts. Our teaching artist will guide campers through activities inspired by what goes into making a play. This camp will culminate in an opportunity for the campers to show off their new skills to family and friends.
