Time and time again families are blown away by the caliber of our summer program. Everyone is comfortably featured and challenged. This camp is designed for the camper that is ready for a more intensive experience and a higher level of commitment, though no prior experience is required and everyone is welcome.  Rehearsals are  fast paced escapades.  Acting skills, character development, work on accents and dance skills are seamlessly integrated.  Believe it or not, we still manage to provide free time fun in our gymnastic room with circus equipment, rope swings, elastic hammocks AND have afternoon crafting with down time to play free choice games.
