Summer Theatre Camp (6-14)

 by Great Big Theatre Company
Drama, Summer Camp
6 - 14 yearsRegistration required, Drop-off

The program includes plays, mime, improvisation, theatre games, musical theatre, work with simple sets and costumes, and an end-of-week public performance. Also included are outdoor activities, swimming (at selected locations), games and sports.

GBTC emphasizes basic skills, appropriate to each individual age level, in areas such as voice, movement, working with scripts, clear speech, expressing emotions, and developing character; we also work to encourage participation and develop confidence. We offer a low ratio (between 7:1 and 8:1) of campers to staff, so that each camper gets sufficient individualized attention. In addition, each age group prepares its own segment of the end-of-week performance, so that everyone participates equally, as much as possible.

The camp is a great way to meet new friends, learn new skills, and try out new tricks ! GBTC's theatre camps are designed to spark the interest of young people who want to act out interesting character roles, and more ! They'll act, sing, dance and participate in stagecraft and theatre games. There's something for everyone, and enough variety to keep campers interested, attentive and involved for the full day. Imaginations will soar to meet each new creative challenge.

The Friday end-of-week shows are exciting and intense, focusing all of the campers' acquired skills and dynamic energy to be shared with family and friends, in a fun setting that highlights each camper's talents and abilities. The confidence gained is something the kids retain long after the last day of camp. GBTC's enthusiastic, caring staff create a warm, supportive environment where campers will feel at home, and be ready to explore and discover. At the end of the day, each and every camper leaves with the joy of participation, and a sense of belonging and accomplishment.
