Step into the spotlight with a camp that combines an introduction to theatre with a variety of recreational activities. Young campers will have the opportunity to become fully immersed in a theatre production, working on design projects for the set, costumes and props. The musical productions are Nuts: A Musical That Celebrates the Circle of Life (Session I) and Journey of the Noble Gnarble (Session II). Along with staging a musical, campers will enjoy activities linked to the theme of the show. Each session ends with the final Saturday performance on stage. The camp fee includes two tickets to the final performance.

Extended Care is available. Staff to camper ratio is 1:8.
