More About The Summer Break Camps

This year’s Summer Break Camps will bring participants together to learn about the performing arts through theatre games, improvisation and an introduction to musical theatre. The program will also work with simple props, sets and costumes. We are holding the camps outside to enable a safer environment for the participants and to provide and opportunity for the youth to enjoy the park amenities.

The 2 week-long camps ends with a short performance on the Kelso Beach stage to the public that will be videotaped, and presented to a small audience.

Participants can expect to have fun and gain confidence while learning something new and building friendships along the way.

Note: Theatre Camps are currently planned for in-person participation. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, strict safety measures will be in effect. Camps are also planned to proceed virtually, should changes to local public health status impact our ability to meet in person. Before registering, participants should consider their capacity to join in either format.
