Where will camp be located?:

Camps will be held in-person* at either:
  • School of the Madeleine, located at: 1225 Milvia St, Berkeley (Enter at Berryman & Henry)
  • Berkeley Playhouse (Julia Morgan Theater), located at: 2640 College Avenue, Berkeley

*Locations are subject to change.

Do you offer Before-Care and/or After-Care?:
Yes, Before-Care is offered for summer camps from 8-9am Monday-Friday and After-Care is offered 3-6pm Monday-Thursday. We will not be offering a drop-in option for Before-Care or After-Care this year. All attendees to extended care must pre-register for Before- and/or After-care for the full week.

Will there be a performance?:
Due to the limited timeframe, our one-week camps focus on community- and skill-building instead of working toward a full performance for friends and family. Students in these camps may perform for their fellow campers (if in compliance with CDC & local guidelines), however there will not be an invited Final Showing. Families will receive a short keepsake video of one musical number that features the entire ensemble. If an invited Final Showing is important to you and your family, please consider enrolling in a two week or three-week camp*.

*We plan to hold invited Final Showings for all two- and three-week camps. This is subject to change based on CDC and local mandates and/or site regulations.

Why is there no full video?
As a small non-profit organization, we do not have the staff resources to produce an edited full-length video for every camp cohort.

We encourage you to invite your camper to share the games, scenes, and songs that they have enjoyed throughout the week and to show off their art & crafts projects!
