Our popular Summer Performing Arts Camp/PA Day programming provides daily learning opportunities in the Arts (Dance, Music, Drama, Visual Arts) with a focus on character building year-round. Our campers grow in character while exploring team work, respect, caring and responsibility. Performing Arts Summer Camp campers not only experience each of the 4 strands of the Arts, but also engage in games and team building activities during each session. The week of camp concludes with a “Variety Show” that the campers perform for parents.
We are excited about and looking forward to, yet again, another wonderful summer with our campers. Below you will find some important information about your child’s week at camp. Please read through everything carefully and do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

All persons picking up your camper should have their photo ID out and ready to be shown to the sign out persons at the end of the day. Please inform everyone that has permission to pick up your child of this policy and procedure so that there are no surprises or delays at the sign out table at the end of the day.
