Outdoor Camps: Ages 3-6 yrs
Come join us as we explore the world of drama and dance using the themes and music from our favorite stories! Each day will be filled with dramatic games to warm up our bodies and voices and get our imaginations ready for theatrical exploration. Students will learn essential theatre skills and terms, engage in dramatic play, explore dance and movement, and create artwork each day.
All camps include an online album of photos and video at the end of the camp so you can see your child’s work.
Whether your child already enjoys performing or is a little hesitant, our camps are aimed to boost their confidence and get them excited about being themselves!
