The Summer Arts Camp program provides a channel for a child’s natural gifts of imagination and role playing. First, through theater arts, children sharpen their creativity, improve their communication skills, gain self-confidence, and learn the importance of teamwork. 

Secondly, children enjoy becoming a part of the magic that they can create.

Lastly, each of our sessions has a specific theme and concludes with a performance for friends and family.

We design our program to offer children an opportunity to explore the many aspects of theater arts through creative games, music, dance, art, and theater.
