(Ages 7-10 & Ages 11-14)

In a world such as ours, it’s critical to know how to pivot and think outside the box. Campers will learn important life skills such as public speaking, teamwork/ group collaboration, improvisation, creative writing, scenic painting, auditioning/interviewing, memorization, taking direction, and how to make the best of every situation. They will write, create, build, and perform their own play for a big performance on the last day of camp!
