2020 Summer Theatre Camps

Summer Camps


 All Camp Materials (t-shirt or summer camp swag, snacks, class materials) are covered in the camp tuition. 



While we are looking forward to providing on-site educational programming for our community this summer, as we continue to monitor the novel COVID-19 activity, restrictions set into place by the state of Pennsylvania, and guidelines set forth by the state and the CDC we will alter, delay or cancel any program that does not fall in line with the guidelines or may pose an unsafe situation for our community. We are proud to offer stellar community based educational and enriching opportunities and entertainment to our community, but we can only continue our legacy of putting community first if we stay true to it. Your health and safety is paramount to us and we will always respond accordingly. If we are unable to continue with our on-site summer educational programming you will be notified immediately and we will provide virtual programming that you may use your credit towards. Thank you for understanding. If you have any questions please contact the Educational Coordinator, Brianne Tupper at [email protected]
