Acting & drama camps

Find camps that specialize in acting listed below

These special arts camps let your son or daughter unleash their creativity through movement, improvisation, singing and dancing. They’ll learn valuable theatre skills including technical instruction in para-theatrical activities like lighting and stage managing which help to broaden their interests.

Why attend a drama camp?

Drama and acting camps are also an ideal opportunity for your child to gain important life skills such as self-confidence, leadership, cooperation and teamwork. He or she is certain to learn more about themselves, develop a deeper awareness of their emotions as well as how to more fully sympathize with others.

Acting & drama camps

In some cases your child may even work with professional stage and screen actors and as part of the overall theatre experience, campers are often involved in a live stage performance at the end of their stay.

Find the right drama camp for your child

When choosing a drama camp, be sure to consider your child’s other interests and any particular needs, plus factors such as location and cost. Would your child prefer a day or overnight camp? What other activities are they interested in that the camp can help expose them to?

More specific questions can include:

  • What sort of facilities and equipment are available for campers to use?
  • How does this drama program compare to others like it?
  • What particular sessions or workshops are offered that can help my child develop a certain skill?
  • What are the qualifications of the counselors and coaches?
  • What sort of professional actors visit the camp and how long do they visit with the campers?
  • Is any school credit offered?

Can you picture your child thriving in a theatrical environment? Then start your search for a drama camp with the listings below.
