At our camp we facilitate creative experiences for our YAK youth (Young Actors Krew) to connect with one another, express themselves and stretch their imaginations. The YAK summer camp will engage students as actors and designers in developmentally appropriate ways.

 

In this summer’s six week camp, youth ages 5-17 will explore, create, and collaborate all through the wonderful lens of theatre. Our summer show will be a 1 hour Jr. production and the children will be responsible for everything from designing sets, sound and lighting systems, acting, choreography, teaching and more, depending on their interests and skills. Camp will end with 2 public, matinee shows on Saturday and Sunday, July 13 and 14. 

 

Camp will run for 6 weeks from June 4th - July 14th 3 Days a week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Children ages 5 - 17 are eligible for summer camp. Camp hours are 9am-12pm unless otherwise noted. Registrations are on a first come, first served basis and the cost of camp is a one-time $100 registration fee which is due upon registration.
