CENTER STAGE CHILDREN’S THEATER SUMMER CAMPS!
*CSCT Summer Camp-$325
Open to kids entering 1st grade in the Fall up through kids entering 6th grade in the Fall
Summer fun is right around the corner with Center Stage Children’s Theater (CSCT). CSCT is a safe, fun and unique theater camp experience “where every child shines."
Each one week session features daily classes in acting, singing/music, dance, and outdoor fun lead by professional teaching artists. The supportive environment provides exposure to the performing arts while helping students build confidence in their own abilities and imagination.
The camps culminate with a mini showcase performance on the last day of the session at 3:00 p.m . All campers will have the opportunity to perform for family and friends, featuring a variety of songs, dances and improv. The camper’s first half of the day will be filled with exercises that activate their bodies, voices, minds and imaginations. After lunch, campers will play fun outdoor games, followed by a fun daily craft.
*Young Helpers Camp-$300
is open to children entering 7th grade in the Fall up through children entering 10th grade in the Fall
This program is designed to help some of our older children learn to be leaders. With guidance from our staff, young helpers will get the opportunity to lead our younger children in fun theater games, as well as work with kids to learn songs and dances. They will also help with costumes and craft activities. In addition, the young helpers will get the opportunity to perform for their younger audience and will present a special number on the last day of camp for our afternoon performance. Young helpers are expected to arrive at camp at 8:30 every morning and leave at 3:30 pm. This will give them a chance to set up before the younger kids arrive/are dismissed and to review tasks for the day/following day.
Refunds are considered on a case by case basis. If your reason for refund is approved, a $25 cancellation fee will apply. An additional prorated amount will apply if the child attended any days of camp.

T-Shirts: Each camper will receive a summer camp t-shirt (included in the cost of tuition). The shirts will be left at CSCT for the duration of camp, they will be able to take it home on the last day of camp. Campers should arrive to camp in regular clothes, but they will be required to put their camp shirts on over their clothes before we leave for the park. We will give campers time to change if they prefer not to wear the t-shirt over other clothes (we don't want them to get too hot or uncomfortable). It is important that all of our campers wear their CSCT camp shirt for safety, identification and unity as a group.
Sunscreen: We plan on spending time outdoors, so please be sure to apply sunscreen before arriving to camp each day. CSCT will have sunscreen on hand, but you must sign the sunscreen application wavier in order for CSCT staff to apply sunscreen to your child. You may also supply your own sunscreen for your child.
Water bottles: There is a drinking fountain at the church, however we ask that you provide your child with their own water bottle. We want to be sure our kiddos are fully hydrated during these hot days at camp. There is AC inside the church.
