DREAM. EXPLORE. CREATE!

This summer the Barn will be offering five weeks of camps, from July 9th through August 10th. Each week offers opportunities for children ranging from age 6 to 11; each class will culminate in a performance on the Barn stage. Camps are taught by Barn staff, members of the Acting Intern Company, and professional guest artists. We look forward to having your family join us this summer!

Camps are held Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM or 1:00 PM-4:00 PM.

Full-Day options: In weeks 2, 3, and 4, we have morning and afternoon options for all campers. Those who want to spend the whole day working on their theatrical talents can sign up for both morning and afternoon options, and pay a reduced “full day” price for both camps. Students will stay from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM with a supervised break from 12:00 – 1:00 PM for lunch (not provided).
