About this camp


The Drama School at Young People's Theatre is the oldest and largest of it's kind in Canada. As well as year-round classes and March Break camp, our Summer Drama Camp provides students entering Grades 1-12 with the opportunity to discover the power of their own creative voice.  Working with seasoned arts educators, they will explore the breadth of their imaginations by working collaboratively to create a unique piece of theatre. Senior students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of performance from devised theatre to film-making and music theatre. Join us for the thrill of creating and performing a new play yet to be imagined!
