Theater Camps

Bay Street Theater’s camps and classes are aimed at fostering students’ wide range of interests and abilities in the arts. Our variety of offerings provides students of any age between 4 and 18 with opportunities to experiment with and develop their skills in areas of theater from Puppetry to Musical Theater to Shakespeare.

The following protocols* will be in place for the safety of all staff, camp attendees, and visitors:

  • Face coverings are required for entry to the theater, and are optional for both indoor and outdoor camps.

  • If your child is vaccinated, please bring proof of vaccination on the first day of camp.

  • Routine cleaning and disinfecting will be conducted, especially of all performance props and shared spaces.

*Protocols will be adjusted to reflect most current NYS and CDC guidance for outdoor camps. For the latest information, please call 631 725 0818.

If a camp is canceled due to lack of participants, registrants will be notified and reimbursed on the Friday before the Monday start date of each camp. If a registration is canceled for a camp that is confirmed to occur, no refunds will be offered. Registrants will receive notification that all payments are non-refundable at time of purchase.
