Musical Theater Camp
Mar 25-29, 2024

Kids are invited to dust off some of the iconic songs and dances from the Musical Theater canon this spring break and put on some razzle-dazzle for a sharing performance. Learn more.
June 10-21, 2024
Campers are invited to join Creative Cauldron for a round-the-world fiesta! Kids will light up a lantern at the Yi Peng Lantern Festival, spray colored water for Holi, and embrace the chills at the Harbin Ice Festival in China! There will be performances, poetry readings, and more at Greece’s August Moon Festival, plus the chance to toss confetti during Bolivia’s carnival. No matter how you celebrate, camp will conclude with a festival performance that, just like a good party, you’ll never want it to end. Learn more.
